End of January 2017– ACSOP Report.
The year 2016 existed and ended marvelously. A lot of good things happened at Andrew Connally School of Preaching. Faculty members and teachers from USA taught wonderful classes. Much thanks goes to the staff of ACSOP for their service and made things easy for our students. We have been able to accomplish much for the Lord and His Kingdom. We have been able to graduate 10 students and are now working closely with their local congregations. The school also had a privilege to host two big camps, on TCC – resulted in 36 baptisms, at FPTC – 7 were baptized. During the leadership conference we had one baptism.
A total of 23 applications have been received for the new students this year. This class will start on February 6, 2017 and a continuing Swahili class which consist 16 students will arrive to start their second year on the program.
Arusha Church of Christ
We are blessed very much at Arusha this time, a number of people were baptized and added to the church for the past few months. God is working with His people in many ways, a total number of 65 people were baptized during the gospel campaign. A group from Mount Juliet, Tennessee, together with the local members were in involved in a door to door gospel campaign. They were able to establish 153 Bible classes in which a team of 16 local evangelist and church members meet every week to study with them at their homes. For two months since the campaign, a team has been able to meet all the studies and cover most of the important subject with them. Three people were baptized and added to the church, and that makes a total of 72 baptisms this year, through this effort two families were baptized. God is good since we have 46 of them are faithful attending new convert class each Sunday.
For the past six months, I have been running a radio program, Much success have come out from that ministry. We are able to reach more than 400,000 people with the gospel of Christ through this radio program. A Number of people have been visiting and calling for more studies, hundreds of Bible classes have been established and people are connected with the preachers in the areas for more studies. Although we can only afford to pay for 30 minutes airtime, but with the Lord on our side much will be accomplished.
It is our wish and prayer that the Lord will continue to use us to accomplish much for the Kingdom here in East Africa and beyond our borders. Please pray for us as we all here remembers you in our daily prayers.
