On my first full day in Togo, I visited Adeta Church. While the worship was not nearly as feisty as the worship at other Togolese churches that my friends visited, I observed women, men, and children alike in prayerful communication with God by way of song. They sang from their souls, not their lips.
At the close of the service, the congregation sang these familiar words:
When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be.
When we all see Jesus,
We’ll sing and shout the victory.
There we stood, representing at least two nations and three languages. Yet, we all worshiped the same God. And when we all get to Heaven, we will lift one voice to praise Him eternally.
