Welcome friends, old and new, known and unknown! It has been my desire to share with you how the Lord is working in my life as I serve the Lord on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. There is an old black and white movie called The African Queen. It is about a boat that travels down river. This blog is not about a boat. It is however, about my travels on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. By the way, did you know that my name means queen. For many years I have been burdened for souls in Africa. That is why some of my friends call me African Queen.

Isa 52:7 "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!"
This week I am one of the missionaries at a mission's conference at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Tioga, PA. The Lord has greatly blessed our meetings so far with record attendance and 3 people saved on the first day.
One of the ladies who was saved is a 22 yr. old girl. Her friends were talking about church on Saturday night, so they all came together on Sunday morning. As they were leaving, I was able to greet her. You could tell that she was hungry for hope in her life and answers that only come from God. I asked her if she was saved and she said, "I think I did that a long time ago." She was a good listener, but thought she might already be saved. I asked her to think back in her life and to ask herself if there was ever a time when she realized that she was a sinner and that she needed to be saved and if she has ever trusted Christ as her Savior. We encouraged her to come back that night.
She came in as service was starting that night and I leaned over to a friend and said,"This girl is searching, lets talk to her again after service and see if she would like to be saved". After songs I took the children downstairs to children's missions class. The Lord really used the message that the missionary preached that night and people went to the altar. After service we had fellowship and refreshments. So, I came out of the children's class to get my friend so we could talk to that lady. Before I got to her I found out that the girl, that I was burdened for, went to the altar & received Christ as Savior. What rejoicing I had in my heart!
It is refreshing to see people hungy for God's Word & to see a soul that you were praying for saved. Please pray for her and her friends as they strive to live for God.
