Greetings Fellow Servants;
We hope and pray this short report finds you and your families doing well, blessed in all the right ways. We, here in Tanzania are doing well, busy, joyful and thankful.
It has been a very busy week. Here are but a few examples of the good our God is doing in East Africa through His faithful:
Maurice Gasper reports: “We continue with our follow up from the campaign efforts by our brothers and sisters from IN and AL. We have handed out more than 5,000 Bible tracts, signed up dozens of correspondence courses, and have established over 80 home Bible studies. Three souls have obeyed the saving message of the gospel to His glory. We thank all who have brought the light of the gospel to these dying people.”
Jacob Omolo reports: “We thank God for the newly established congregation here at Bondo, Kenya. Souls are hearing and souls are obeying the Word of God through the faithful preaching of the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!”
David Bayi reports: “We thank God for the “Spiritual Disciplines” seminar. Our numbers are growing with 92 present for worship this day. Two souls were restored through this wonderful effort. We praise Him and we thank Him for His abundant love”.
Today was another great day in the Kingdom here at the Kisongo congregation. Both last week and this week, souls gave their lives to the Lord. It is such a blessing and privilege to serve where conversions are the norm, not the exception. To witness the power of the gospel working in and through the lives of so many is refreshing to say the least.
Many remember; “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God.” But, all to often many forget the rest of the verse; “that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9) It is true, “The most powerful ongoing Christian witness has always been the speaking of God’s Word by one who is living God’s Word,” (Donald S. Whitney). All the good deeds in the world will never save a soul. Until that person meets Jesus through the reading, teaching or preaching of the gospel, they will remain in darkness. Let us stand up, speak up, and measure up to our personal responsibilities before it is eternally to late!
Let our light so shine in the coming week, that some lost soul might know Jesus, His love, and the power of the gospel in their life.
Prayers requested: Daniel Gaines will fly out tonight, myself tomorrow night. We have been away from our families way to long and are eagerly anticipating our reunion with our loved ones. Until all have heard…
Cy, Stephanie & Granny
