Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from this part of the globe. We praise God. Today was great and we had a great worship of our God. We do hope that you are doing great and God is blessing you for all that you are doing.
Last week in BVBIC-Wotutu went on well, except for brother Nguty who is still struggling with sickness. Please keep him in your prayers.
Last week was examination week in BVBIC-Wotutu, the exams went on well and students will be traveling to Kumbo tomorrow morning to attend a scholarship lectureship there for four days. Thereafter, when they return, we shall sign them out for vacation. We just modified our calendar a little bit, so that our students will go for vacation, return, and take two short courses on the book of 2 Corinthians and the book of James. Afterwards we shall send them to different locations for field work.
Brightland Christian Academy kids finished their exams for classes also. They took one public exam already which guarantees them to advance to secondary education. One is coming up in June for the same purpose. This lone christian school in our community is preparing for our graduation ceremony coming up on the 7th of June. This is another great day were the kids expose to the public what Brightland Christian academy is all about. Graduating classes for both the nursery and primary will have rhymes, memory verses, and many other things.
A group of Roman Catholic students and their leader visited the orphanage. They allowed our children to sing praises to God, and they observed that our children were not clapping nor dancing. Afterwards the leader, who calls himself Priest, started talking and was advising that when next you sing, use your hands and clap, but our kids who are barely a year in the home said in chorus, “We don’t clap hands during worship in our church hall and during our devotions.” What a day, as I stood before these children with joy and pride. I said within me, “God thank you for passing through us to bring these children closer to you and to make you known to them.” Nurturing for eternity is our passion, vision, dream, and we are ready to make sure this happens with no stone unturned.
Rainy season is back and it has started making our mission work, not only expensive, but very difficult, where our cars cannot continue. We continue with motorcycles because we don’t have cars with four wheel drive. God alone will provide it to us one day, so that in all the seasons, the gospel message will not have stumbling blocks.
) Students and staff move to Kumbo for the scholarship lectureship.
2) This Saturday, the fourth entrance exams will take place and we have many prospective candidates, almost 50. We need just 20 freshmen to start in January 2017.
3) Brightland Christian Academy graduation will bring the parents closer to the dream of why the Christian school was established. They will watch and admire their children how they are grounded with the truth about Christ and His church. |Some parents started worshiping with us due to their children in the school. This is and can be an open door, if we invest spiritual and physical things into this dream.
God bless you. Thanks very much for making this work as smooth as it is now. God bless you and replenish your efforts. Thank you for being there for us. Share this news with others.
Elangwe and family
