2016 just took off…
The year 2015 existed and ended marvelously. My Gospel ministry and entire mission work was amazing, especially working with my fellow preachers and faculty members at ACSOP. We have been able to accomplish much for the Lord and His kingdom for the past year. Many reports have been written in detail to show the success we experienced over the past months.
As we were closing the year, the Arusha church of Christ was privileged to invite all the congregations around the area for a fellowship meal and singing worship. This time, more than 260 attended this event. Together, with singing and preaching, a special prayer was made by the men of the congregation on behalf of our brother Cy who is very sick, and he is still in need of your prayers. At the end of the worship service, 12 faithful souls out of 18 who were baptized within the year stood up and greeted the congregation. We still have 56 good Bible classes in different places and within the area of Arusha. It is our hope and prayer that many souls will be added to the church this year since many members involve themselves in outreach programs.
ACSOP STUDENT REGISTRATION
We continue to receive application forms from different congregations in east Africa. This time many have shown a great interest of joining a Swahili program. And out of 32 applications, 18 sent all their requirements for school. Soon the faculty will have a meeting and finalize the process so that we can be in a position to send a letter of acceptance. The school will begin its first quarter on February 8th. Men of God: Michael Lesotwa, Charles Heberth, Ahimidiwe Kimaro, Daniel Gaines, myself and others are ready to train these preachers. Our call here at ACSOP, “…entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” 2 Timothy 2:2 (NASB).
Thank you again for your support and prayers as we all continue working for Him and the Kingdom.
