My experiences during Beat the Drum and outreach to Lesotho were worthwhile. Proving that I have to depend on God for every thing was awesome. Being a kind of person that grew up lacking courage, after learning about Musa, I discovered that we have to depend on God in order to have courage. With both Beat the Drum and outreach, I felt like I was growing and learning more than I was teaching people. The highlight of my experience for Beat the Drum and outreach was knowing that I can do anything as long as I depend on God. My perspective of the world was that people have been taught and they know about God (outreach) and AIDS . This perspective of mine has been changed because I discovered that in as much as they know about AIDS, they do not know that values determine if or not they get the disease. During outreach in Lesotho, I thought people know God but just choose not to worship him, but then I was shocked to learn that they thought it normal and right to worship God in combination with ancestral spirits. My perspective on both programs has been changed because I have not just heard but seen it for myself too.
What is being stirred up in my heart is that I still need to go and talk to the people because it’s like every time there are people everywhere who do not know the truth.
