[Angola] When women of the Seventh-day Adventist church in the town of Londuibali in South West Angola gathered for a special Sabbath day of prayer and "Walking with Jesus," March 2, 2019, they prayed earnestly for God to supply a basic requirement in their plans for evangelistic work. They needed a form of transportation. But how would they get it? They didn't have one extra Kwansa (dollar), not even a centimo (penny), to pay for it. Somehow God needed to do a mighty work.
That day the municipal administrator saw the commitment of these women and his heart was moved. He decided to donate a motorcycle to assist their plans for evangelism. This generous act is considered by the joyful women as a miraculous and immediate answer to prayer.
“Walking with Jesus” is the 2019 theme for the International Women’s Day of Prayer which is observed annually in the Seventh-day Church on the first Sabbath of March.
