Greetings Fellow Servants,
Stephanie and I would like to thank you for your prayers of late. We thank you for all your prayers and support for us, the Lord’s work here in TZ, and for your part in the gospel.
November was a very busy time. Fifteen faithful evangelist graduated on the 28th, closing one chapter and opening another in their lives. What a joy it is to see the growth of these men over the last two years. We have great hopes and expectations for each of them, their families, and the works they will be a part of in the Kingdom. Please pray for them and the first year student body as they arrive back to their homes.
Recently, the Kioga congregation hosted a Children’s and Ladies Bible Seminar. Jane and Desdery Massawe have begun this new ministry and hope to do this on a regular basis with the many congregations throughout Tanzania. Anna and Samantha partnered with them in teaching around 150 children and 50 or so ladies. We are in awe of the maturing and spiritual development of both Desdery and Jane. They are but two examples of the growth of the Lord’s church here in Tanzania.
Renee Galloway taught over one hundred Christian ladies yesterday, our largest ever ladies gathering. The lessons were well received and the day simply could not have gone better. Jay Galloway taught our first year students on Leadership, taught Bible class, and preached each week, while Renee taught the children’s classes as well. We are grateful for all who come and join us in the work of the Lord here in TZ. This week Jay and Renee will return home so pray for their safe arrival on Wednesday evening.
December is always a busy time for us. The first week in December we host the Future Preacher’s Training Camp, directed by Micheal Losotwa (our Dean of Academics). Ben Thompson and John Rice will join us again for the Tanzania Christian Camp the week following. Please pray for those coming, including Neal Richey and his son. Also please pray for the Storks family who are coming for a survey trip in hopes of joining the TZ team in 2016.
One last prayer request. I have been dealing with some health issues for several weeks. After several treatments the two doctors I have seen here in Tanzania agree it is time to come to America for further treatment. Stephanie and I will be flying out tonight arriving late on Monday.
We thank you all for all you do in the Kingdom of God!
Cy, Stephanie & Granny
