It’s my hope this finds you well in the Lord’s work. I am happy for the Lord’s work which is entrusted to us in this area. Also, I am happy for your position to make the ACSOP the best school in this area. It has been a blessing to see students performing well in their studies and working hard on their evangelism efforts. As I am writing this report the students just finished baptizing one person that they reached this week. This is exactly what the Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:2, 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.
Now the students have the great privilege of serving the Lord by evangelizing in local congregations every weekend. Next week will be the last week for the long quarter which will be followed by two short-courses in each class. As part of the students training, we are able to listen to students preaching every Thursday at the Kisongo church, which is closer to the school. On the second Thursday of this month we were able to listen to brother Emanuel Dagati from the second year, who is among the best students on preparing and delivering sermons. He preached the sermon on “Who can Escape the Terrifying Hand of God?” Hebrews 10:31. He preached out of confidence which led everyone to have the feelings of what will happen to those still living in sin. This encouraged teachers and all those who are making this work to be possible. By training these men, God has been glorified in all East Africa and Central Africa. Too many churches are being established through these efforts.
Back to the Kisongo church, God is still in control. In August and September six peoplereceived the gospel by being added to the church and four were restored to Christ. The church is working hard, as much as possible, to make sure the gospel is being taken serious regardless of the challenges she is facing. We are now encouraging members to do their part by preparing as many Bible classes as they can.
Please, in your prayers remember to pray for our good brother, Loishiye, who has been passing difficulties due the conflicts between him and his wife. This is causing him to draw back from the church. There are worldly friends trying to interfere in their relationship by encouraging the wife to divorce him. He has been suffering in this problem for almost a year now.
Thank all for your time.
