We hope you are enjoying your weekend. Ours is bright and sunny! Thank you so much for your interest in the TZ 2000 Mission Work. We appreciate you reading our report. This week is seriously busy in Tanzania in political arenas; the rallies have gotten a serious momentum as each party is trying to end up their campaigns with a big hope of winning the general election tomorrow, October 25, 2015. We need your prayers so that might go well.
Back to the Bible, My Lord said, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven" (Mt. 5:16). The best I can tell, there's no limitation to this. In other words, shining forth a good example is not restricted to the church building, or to Sunday service, or just when around church folks. Truth be told, where it's most important to let our lights shine is at home, on the job, at school, and even on social media sites. True Christianity radiates from within and is on display everywhere, and all the time. I mentioned all of these because most of the time I do feel more comfortable after encouraging others.
On the other hand the studies are going well here at ACSOP. The first year class had a wonderful short course on the book of James taught by brother Mike Benson from the USA. The long courses are going on as usual. To the first year class I am teaching the books of 1 & 2 Samuel through 1 & 2 Chronicles, plus 1 & 2 Peter and Jude. Daniel Gaines is teaching 1 and 2 Thessalonians, and Godfrey Mngoma is teaching the books of Ezra through Esther.
To the second year class, Ahimidiwe Kimaro is teaching a course on the Preacher’s Work, Josephat Massawe is teaching the books of 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus, Desdery Massawe is teaching Public Speaking [Advanced Homiletics], Godfrey Mngoma is teaching the books of the Minor Prophets part II, and Bernard Kulanga is teaching the book of Revelation. The first year will end up their courses on November 20th and the second year on November 13th.
I wish you a great weekend as well as a wonderful worship Sunday!
