Sunday - a day of Pentecost & Rainbows

We had a wonderful Sunday Church experience today. While reminding the children about last week's lesson on Noah's Ark, there were about 100 extra children walking up to join us from the village that we visited the other day. We invited all the village women and children to meet us at church and they remembered the invitation. We taught the children about God's promises and they made mosaic rainbows. They were able to answer what the rainbow represented and the children repeated "God's promises are faithful."
God is faithful. As bright as the rainbow is, so is His love. God's love for us is so bright that we are often blinded by it. Most of the women from the village that I spoke to were present at church. There were single moms, abandoned women, and widows. All of them have a hard life. All of them have real pain that is shared by women alike all around the world. All of them need Jesus. And today, they understood what the rainbow represents.
Today, the majority of the women that showed up and accepted Christ. Today, they understand the simple story that the children learned in Sunday School: God's promises are faithful. Today, they understood that there is HOPE and that they have a new eternal family with their sisters in Christ. It was an emotional experience to see that many women go down front for an alter call and it reminded me of Pentecost. As I looked around the room and saw a teenage girl on her knees praying to our Abba Father and crying, I teared up and thanked God for showing His amazing love. Rainbows were everywhere and His love was raining down in floods on every woman and child.
The bright colors of the rainbow are bright examples of God's love.
