Team Berryman spent
25-days this summer in Africa on 3-different,consecutive, church planting campaigns with e3 Partners Ministry. This is just one story of God’s redeeming love that we wanted to share with you!
Carol, an e3 staff member from Texas, visited this very small house (not
much bigger than the vans we ride in). Carol spent time talking with a woman and her five children. The woman confessed that she used to be a faithful
Christian but after she was married, her husband led her away from the Lord.
One day he took another wife and abandoned her and the kids. The woman realized
she needed to get her spiritual life back on track and is thrilled there will
now be a church within walking distance she can attend. Wow! Carol prayed
for her and her children, and she came to the afternoon meetings at new
Although the woman and her children had a decent
set of clothes to wear, it was obvious that they were very poor. Because of their
faithful attendance to the meetings and re-dedication of their lives to Christ,
our ministry team wanted to bless them. We gave the family six (donated to us) Christ Lutheran School shirts. We stressed that the gifts were from the church and that all praise and thanks
should go solely to God. Thank you Christ Lutheran School for your generosity!
