Africa: Brian

"How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation" -Isaiah 52:7
Lekgoa (White Man) The White Man came to heed his call, He followed God's command like Paul; God made the choice of where to go, A place to help the people grow. Botswana was the place He chose, If you're wondering where to go, He knows; The White Man went and staked his plot, To share the truths that Jesus taught; But times were hard when droughts would come, When hearts were dry and spirits numb; But the White Man stayed upon His course, Cause his strength came from a higher source; The White Man's strength came from the Lord, He loved the people as the Spirit poured Himself through the man to the lost and lame, As he served and loved and shared The Name; Then a funny thing happened in the midst of drought, When times were lonely and he'd sometimes doubt; Fruit began to grow in spite of the dry Cause Christ brought growth in spite of the sky; So press on Brian in His awesome plan, Keep sharing God's love in that beautiful land, Botswana's richer when the White Man's there, We love you Brian- stay in His care By Eric Joseph Staples ©
