It’s my hope that you have a great moment of serving our Lord Jesus Christ. At the end of this year we see God working with his people here. The ACSOP is doing well in its plans and current activities that are looking to glorify our most awesome God. We are doing whatever possible to please our God and to help the school remain the best.
The school is now in the process of registering new students. Next February we are going to have a new intake, and this is going to be a Swahili steam. When we register the Swahili intake the number is high because there are many Swahili speakers that need to join the school. So far, over twenty students have registered and fifteen others are still pending completion of their required documents for registration. We hope that we are going to have a big and exciting class.
Also as Paul said to Timothy, “the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” We are in the middle of the one week youth camp. In this camp we have 42 young men that need to be preachers one day in their life. The Future Preachers Training Camp is one of the most effective camps in Tanzania. For a one week period we are teaching them how to lead and teach others. We thank all the brethren who work with this camp and direct it. This is a big step for church growth. Some congregations are lacking strong leadership, but by teaching and encouraging young people, one day the church here will have elders and deacons through the help of these young men. We have noted most of the campers from previous years are preachers now and some are leaders in various congregations. We have six chancellors in the camp and they are doing an amazing job of leading others who were the first campers when this camp started nine years ago.
We thank you very much for the efforts and the prayers which have made all this to be possible.
