Dearest in Christ,
Calvary greetings to you from your brothers and sisters here. We do hope you are doing great in all that you do. We are doing better here in health. The rainy season continues to make history for the past 6 weeks now. The rain is still on and many cannot do their regular activities with ease.
The gospel and the mission to reach out to souls still tops our agenda because we know we are supposed to think souls and go rob from the strong man’s house. Heavy rain and sickness can only disturb for a while, but it cannot stop us to discharge items on our agenda.
Reaching out to souls provokes lots of persecutions and difficulties. As the rainy season is bad, so too is the means to send students out for weekend evangelism. Roads are bad and prices of transportation are high.
Last week in BVBIC-Wotutu went on well, as we were winding up studies for long courses and we shall give exams. Thereafter, we shall start preparing for two short courses which are coming up in September: “Galatians” and the “Prison Epistles.” Students are growing and we are thankful to God. We can see with our own eyes how God continues to raise His workers through our hands daily.
The Wotutu congregation continues to provide practical grounds for our students. This morning brother Etongwe Theophile lead us in songs. It was great as he provoked and kept everyone in the mode to worship God in the beauty of His holiness.
Because of severe rain our Christians can still make their way to the worship hall. Everyone paid attention to see with his or her eyes what the Bible says about.
Mr. Gregory Ncho, his wife Mrs. Tawi Frida, and their family friend obeyed the gospel the same day. It was wonderful for them to worship with us today for the third time and decide to obey the gospel and put on Christ. It was a remarkable history. This makes it easy for growth because most of the time when one, mostly the lady, obeys the gospel the husband can bring persecution. Keep them in your prayers so that their children who were in worship today will see great changes in their lives and they will follow also.
Brother Gregory smiled in the water pool of baptism. Keep praying for him to lead his family now with a difference.
Sister Tawi Frida obeyed the gospel also. Keep her in your prayers.
Pointing to the word is our business. Students at the riverside pointed to the word of truth, “here is some water, what hinders me from being baptized?”
Brother Edube baptized brother Shudifor all from the same family. Keep them in your prayers.
Students will begin their third quarter exams soon.
We prepare for short courses and exams in September.
God bless you and keep you strong. Thanks for all your love shown and deep concern for us and the work here.
Do your best to pray for us as we pray for you. Please share our report with others.
Elangwe and family
