Our Photos and Reports from Today
Today (and possibly tomorrow), we have the joy of ministering at Vision Africa’s orphanage. Currently, there are 35 kids in the orphanage, but the number goes as high as 100. These kids, ages infant to 6 years, are generally orphaned by the death of their mothers at childbirth. By age 6, our orphanage has helped reunite them with extended family. The orphanage also provides a good beginning in their education.
An extremely important part of our annual mission is the Media/Radio training, wherein leaders from American Christian radio stations provide training to more than 200 radio staff and students. Pictured below, our partners — trainers from KCBI Radio, Moody Radio and Sharing International — are training our Vision Africa Radio staff and Mass Comm University Students. What a blessing!!
Our Devotional For Tomorrow
TOPIC: Return to the Lord
TEXT: HOSEA 6:1 “Come, and let us return to the Lord; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.”
Man right from the time of Adam has been finding it difficult to sustain a close relationship with God. Man always find ways to run away from God to enable him satisfy his selfish desire against God’s will and purpose for him. Despite man’s numerous negative attitudes towards God, God will always look for a way of reconciling man back to Himself instead of allowing him to perish. God through today’s passage is asking His people to return back to Him.
Deviating from God has caused many injuries both in our homes, churches and society at large. Adam lost the Garden of Eden when he sinned and lost contact with God. The only people that has guarantee for divine protection are those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High (Psalm 92:1). No matter how afflicted you are, God is capable of giving you a total healing. His word says “After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight” Hosea 6:2.
There is no other better time than now to return to the Lord. Naomi returned to the Lord and she began to see the new page of her life in her old age. The prodigal son returned to his Father and His life was restored to his original state. What is it that you think you are enjoying outside Christ that has brought a demarcation between you and God? What is that life style that is drawing you out of God’s presence? God is calling you to rise up and return to Him.
ACTION PRAYER: God Almighty, we pray that you open our eyes to know where we have gone astray and give grace to return to you in repentance. We also pray for those who will be receiving the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through Vision Africa’s evangelism outreach programme, that they may willingly accept Jesus and return back to God and forsaking their sins in Jesus name. Amen.
