QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "The things which you have heard from me...entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." II Tim. 2:2
As we consider these words of instruction from Paul to the young preacher Timothy, an obvious thing must come into our mind: How are we putting this instruction into practice today? As I thought about that, nothing came into my mind except exactly what is going on in ACSOP. This instruction of Paul is really being put into practice here.
This second quarter of studies here in ACSOP is impressive. Our lecturers are working harder and harder to impart to these fellows the knowledge of God’s word. They are doing exactly what I have quoted above for this week. The first year students are showing great improvement in their studies.
On the other hand, things are moving well with the ACSOP staff. All the cooks, cleaners and students are okay. We all are enjoying God’s blessing of heavy rains here in Arusha. The school farm and the vegetable garden are blooming. We hope this year we will have a good harvest of corn and more vegetables. Moreover, please never forget to remember in your daily prayers our dear brother Cy, as he continues to get more strength from his sickness.
We ought always to GIVE THANKS to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting..." (2 Thess. 1:3) for all you have done, and for your faith in us and the work going on here. "Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified..." (2 Thess. 3:1)
Thank you so very much for your continued and faithful support of our work. May God bless you for your sacrifices!
In Christ Jesus,
