Trip to Wodmej!
During out trip to Wotje we took a boat to a small atoll called Wodmej! There is a woman there who started a church there about two years ago. In the top photo you see a picture of Hilda and her class. She is an elementary school teacher there on Wodmej. She took the job there about two years ago. After a short time she started a small Bible study that has become a church now running about 20 members. Many times she has wanted to quit but the Lord would encourage her to stay. Hilda did not give up. When she had only three people coming she was using the school. Once her group began to grow they told her she could not have service there. This did not stop her, she just took her group to the beach. Every morning they pray together before school and every Sunday they have church. Praise the Lord, God is moving even in the smallest places.
There are only about 200 people that live in this small place. Just recently the land owner told her she could have a piece of land to build a house and a church. Praise the Lord! Nothing can stop the plan of God. You can see the property in the pictures above. They have given her a piece of land from the lagoon to the sea. More than enough! God is so good. We will also be helping her raise funds to build the church and her house in that small place. Please keep Hilda and the people of Wodmej in your prayers. Be blessed, your faithfulness is making a difference around the world.
Running with the Vision,
