Went to meet the ‘Tribal King of the Town’ a believer, who had to formally invite us in!
Then on to the Lord mayor’s office!
Is everyone a believer in this town?!
It seems 90% are culturally Catholic with witch craft, the rest Islamic, with a small percentage evangelicals. Everyone is sensitive to God, so different from the UK.
We spent time in the afternoon interceding for Pakwach as God showed us His heart for the people and the land.
Later that day with all our flags, loud speakers, choirs and massive numbers of children the ‘Muzungu’ (whites) joined the Jesus march round the town. Being in Africa, it was less of a march and more of a dance. People joined in as they went past and we even inspired a lady carrying a plate full of things on her head to dance!
A shaman seemed to like following us, well, we know the deal... The march finished at a green where tomorrows event would be. A group from another village had joined us and were already singing and playing a giant Xylophone. They sang simple worship songs in the local language which declared truth as the people gathered to watch.
In the evening we had a slot on Radio Pakwach where we were able to invite people to the event the following day, our team were amazing! Think we’ll let Robert start a Radio Sh’ma! A natural!
We later found out that 11am - 6pm the whole radio station couldn’t air anything because the air conditioning had broken making it too hot to transmit. People had been trying to fix it all day. At 6:30pm it started getting some signals again and at 7pm Fred, one of the IT technicians wasn’t sure the radio was going to air, but it did! Praise God! Our slot was 7-8pm and about 30 minutes after we left the whole radio station went off again! They couldn’t broadcast again until 8 am the next day.
