BJ got to lead his first person to Christ in Swahili this last Thursday! He had started out in English, not sure how it would go in Swahili. But then he could see in the lady’s eyes that she was not understanding him well. So he switched to Swahili, and watched, amazed, as the Holy Spirit brought her under conviction. She prayed on her own to receive Christ as her Savior, and BJ said you could tell that it was real and sincere. It taught us both a lesson: The Holy Spirit is the One Who convicts and saves in spite of the inability of whoever He uses to do the talking. That is so beautiful to me! Once back in the car on their way home, BJ asked his assistant pastor how he did in Swahili and what mistakes he made. He was told that aside from one or two wrong tenses, and the fact that he plowed right through from start to finish (lack of more vocabulary!), he did very well! His Kenyan friends were quite pleased that he was willing to give it a go in Swahili.
