This was such a special week and weekend at C3! On Wednesday, Matt, myself, and our daughter, Caroline were in Mganduzweni with C3 South Africa dedicated the well, that we built in that village of 170.000 people! It’s the first well to ever offer fresh water for free! The well is just outside the church, so now they can begin coming to get fresh water and receive the living water as well! Matt and I were so excited to be back at C3 yesterday so we could share the report with C3! While we were in Mganduzweni, Matt reminded the people of that village that this is only the beginning as we continue our vision to proved Real Hope for Real People in a Real World!!
While we were gone, Lee Chatham who oversees our C3 Leadership College spoke on Standing Still. You can see this weekend’s message here. Also, if you weren’t able to join us this weekend and would like to give your regular tithe and offering, you can give online by clicking here.
When word reached the king of Egypt that the Israelites had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds. “What have we done, letting all those Israelite slaves get away?” they asked. So Pharaoh harnessed his chariot and called up his troops. He took with him 600 of Egypt’s best chariots, along with the rest of the chariots of Egypt, each with its commander. The lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, so he chased after the people of Israel, who had left with fists raised in defiance. The Egyptians chased after them with all the forces in Pharaoh’s army—all his horses and chariots, his charioteers, and his troops. The Egyptians caught up with the people of Israel as they were camped beside the shore near Pi-hahiroth, across from Baal-zephon.As Pharaoh approached, the people of Israel looked up and panicked when they saw the Egyptians overtaking them. They cried out to the lord, and they said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt? Didn’t we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, ‘Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!’”But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
When we face a problem, we must…
1. Stand Still
2. Just Stay Calm
