You can’t imagine how happy we are, after a long and busy month of June here at Arusha. As the old American saying goes, “happy to see the headlights coming, happy to see the taillights leaving”. As you have heard from many reports of the past that the Lord has been accomplishing many good things through his servants who came to Arusha, from the USA and from different places in this country. Precious souls have been added to Christ and His church. The ministers of these congregations are continuing to nurture these little babies in the word of God as our Lord instructed us “… teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…”. And those good bible classes that have been established by our brothers and sisters have been set into a closer follow up to make sure that no one is left behind in this journey to Heaven.
House to house evangelism in Arusha town
Pre-campaign in Arusha town congregation has started bearing fruits. Two souls have been added into the church by the Lord through baptism this week. Beginning next week the congregation is going to be blessed with another busy week of House-to-House evangelism (as we now call fighting the devil). Every necessary preparation has been put in place for the children’s bible classes. As usual, we are expecting to have more that 100 children every day. About twenty preachers from different congregations have already been confirmed to come and participate in this big event of making disciples. This makes me more happy because I will also have an opportunity to meet with one of the very first people (Mr. Lenkosi Mkwana) who obeyed the Gospel when the first missionary (Brother. Andrew Connally) came to Tanzania.
Youth seminar in Kilimanjaro
The Tanzania youth seminar is in progress. I had a privilege to attend a youth seminar that is going on in Moshi. About 120 youth from all over the country came to learn the bible. On the very first day, one brother was baptized. I was amazed to see a young boy leading songs (Hamisi) who had been a Muslim, but was baptized two years ago through their seminar. There is nothing impossible to the Lord. Let us not grow weary to in prayer, and as brother Cy always says, “work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work.” May the Lord God bless you as you read and pray for this great ministry in Tanzania.
