We went and visited Auma Grace on September 11th, 2014 at 3:30PM. It took about five minutes to walk over to her hut. As we arrived, Grace welcomed us into her hut where we then started singing praise and worship songs led by Apio Alice after which Kevin led the devotion. She read from the book of Matthew 22:1-14 where Jesus spoke in parables. This particular parable was of the wedding banquet. In the reading it says the Kingdom of Heaven is like a King who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. As the son when out looking for guests, people turned down the invitation. This in summary implies that God has invited us all to attend to his only beloved son but because of our sinful nature as human beings, people in the times of Jesus, and up to date, failed and still fail to listen to him which ended up in Jesus being crucified on the cross. This part we found in Matthew 22:5-6.
From Matthew 22:11-14, man who had not worn the wedding cloth refers to those without the Holy Spirit in them and on the last day, they will be rejected by God then pushed to hell where there is a lot of suffering. Therefore since many are called but few are chosen, we should all strive to be with wedding cloth then be amongst the few chosen by God.
After the message from Kevin, Alice asked for prayer requests. Grace said we should pray for her son’s complaints of headaches. Nighty asked that we pray for her hand because it’s swelling and painful. Stella asked that we pray for customers, and Grace asked that we pray for her brother after having been in an accident where two other people were injured and are in critical condition in the hospital.
After prayer requests, we all prayed and Alice closed in prayer. Food prepared by Grace was brought and served which was delicious. After eating and fellowship it was around 6pm so everyone walked home from there.
