As we descended the hill the rain began to fall heavily. Muddy clay stuck to our shoes, increasing their weight almost pulling them off our feet every step. I was forced to walk with a glide trying to swipe my shoes clean. We arrived soaking and covered our rooms with our articles in hopes they would dry. We packed no extra clothing due to the limited weight available on the aircraft, so we wondered if the rest of our visit was destined to be a wet one. We spent time in prayer because we would not be able to show the Jesus film if the weather did not relent.

The weather was changing and we were not sure we would be able to show the Jesus Film.

One hour before we planned to show the film the clouds broke over the airfield. Standing in the grass field you could see we were surrounded by looming showers, but not one drop fell on us. It was yet another miracle. Ntate Boomo, brought a 40 pound backpack, which carries a projector, speakers, microphone, batteries, solar panels, everything needed to play the Jesus film in the most remote places in the world. People began to trickle down the hills and by dark we began.

Setting up the Jesus Film equipment. There were even a few sun breaks!!!

During the show, Ntate Boomo used the microphone to explain some of the scenes. The Basotho always laugh when Peter, James and John fill their boats with fish and tonight was no different. Towards the end of the presentation Ntate Pheko stood up and summarized the Bible and asked if anyone wanted to accept the Lord that night. About fifty people stood up and joined Ntate Pheko in a declaration of faith. It was amazing to see the Lord working in the lives of these mountain people.
