For the past three years Mookodi Mokopotsa has served as a Global Mission pioneer at a little white church in the village of Sojwe. The Sabbath we visited, we were able to meet both the outgoing and incoming Global Mission pioneers. As the new pioneer preached, Mookodi translated so that we could understand.
When Mookodi began his ministry at Sojwe there were 7 members. Now there are 42, including many energetic, happy children.
Mookodi was always busy sharing Jesus during his ministry. He held evangelistic campaigns, prayed with the village chief every morning, visited the students at local schools, and prayed with the staff and patients at the health clinic. Every day he visited the village people in their homes to study the Bible and pray with them.
“I love this job!” says Mookodi. “I meet people with many problems and I have to think about how I can help them so that I can win them for Christ. This job has helped me become spiritually fit.
“Jesus is coming very soon,” Mookodi adds. “Please pray for the latter rain to make us Global Mission pioneers around the world more powerful and effective in sharing Jesus. And thank you very much for your support of Global Mission. You are helping us reach people for Jesus in areas where it’s very difficult to share the gospel.”
The next thing I knew, the door flew open, and I was staring down at a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun.
