Day 7 - Soweto High School

I woke up at 4:30am today.
That's enough to make up a post.

We packed up the gear and began the driving to Soweto (about 1.5 hr. away). It was an early morning to say the least. Once we arrived we did the usual sound checks and preparing for 9am to roll around. We kicked off the day w/ "Count Me In". The day went well with exception to one thing, the principal of the school would interrupt and disrupt the set program with his own plans. At one point, he interrupted the music set and began playing "My Country Tis of Thee". Not after long we realized that the Devil was again using spiritual warfare to combat the message of hope that we were there to spread. We began praying and praying. As one of the R4L staff from Zambia, Richman, was giving the commitment time/altar call, the principal again interrupted and began speaking, immediately one of the Hopefest volunteers grabbed me and some of the band and began praying for the altar call time. Students had been leaving and not paying attention to the program but began coming back to the area and coming forward to receive Christ, by the end of Richman's invitation, around 200 students came forward to receive Christ and commit to purity. Another proof of God's power and control in any situation. Times like when a principal interrupts a crucial part of the program, I feel completely helpless, I want to control the situation. God doesn't work that way. He still has brought hundreds of fatherless children, into His arms. Tomorrow, we are going to a school, Katalahon, where we are playing for about 2600 students.

keep praying.
