Encouraging news from Njiro chini Church of Christ
For the past few weeks the devil has been put to shame at the Njiro area. More than 15 evangelists and servants of God from the USA and many others from nearby congregations around the area came to join the effort of the TEAM in strengthening a newly planted congregation of Njiro chini. The last two weeks of May we visited this area and conducted a pre-campaign. We had an opportunity to knock doors and gates of residences of this area. During this time we were able to establish 120 intact Bible classes, distributed more than 1000 Bible tracts, and registered 95 students in Bible correspondence courses. The Lord was so good to us for these many open doors and as a result two souls were added to the church.
When our visitors arrived and joined our effort in reaching many people in this area we had a tremendous outcome. The Lord added a total of 12 souls from Njiro chini and another 7 souls from Arusha who will be worshiping with the brethren in Arusha church of Christ. Through our groups we were able to reach those bible classes that has been established earlier. On the following Sunday, 10 of those who have been baptized in Christ came to worship. As I am writing a closer follow up is continuing by the Team to those who have been studying with local and foreign missionaries. Brother Imani Ndahani, who was once a Pentecostal preacher, was also baptized during this week after a three day discussion with our brother Mickey. He and another six members were also baptized and now are faithful members of Arusha Church. Keep your prayers up for this wonderful work here in Arusha as we continue to plant and grow many souls. We believe that God will give the increase in his own time. It is encouraging because during this time of post campaign one soul has been added to the church.
Tanzania youth seminar.
The Arusha church of Christ is enjoying having more that 150 youth from different churches of Christ all over Tanzania. This week youths are here at Arusha to attend a one week seminar by the title “… I have written to you young men, because you are strong…” 1 John 2:14 [NASB]. Many good teachers from different congregations are attending this seminar and have had enough preparation to instruct these young men and women to be faithful Christians as they continue to grow in faith. One soul was added through this seminar, continue to pray for these youths.
Thank you again for your love, support and prayer for this work as we all continue working for Him and the Kingdom.
