Sunday, June 11th
A day of both ministering and fellowship at Tanzania Assemblies of God in Bonite.
Pastor Everest Samson and his wife, Aingaya, shepherd a congregation of around 30 members.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:24)
The rawness of worship experienced with this congregation recalled to mind what it means to have freedom in salvation.
Worship has no time limit. Whether that be said as an irrefutable fact of what worship is meant to be or as an observation of how these congregants approach the throne of God, the Spirit of the Lord was evident in their song.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (1 Cor. 3:17)

Brandon (pictured above with Calvin) was given the floor to give a message on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Melissa (not pictured) was also able to partner in the message of caring for orphans through adoption and kinship.
I will not leave you as orphans. (John 14:18)
Brandon and Melissa along with Pastor and Mrs. Everest’s daughter, Winner.
“Are you going to take a picture of me?”
“Yes, but you have to smile.”
Pastor Everest poses in the doorway of his church.
Getting everyone to smile and look at the camera at the same time was somewhat of a difficult task. But we managed to capture everyone’s faces.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. (Matthew 18:20)
