Dearest in Christ,
Greetings from this part of the globe. We do hope you are doing great. We keep you in our prayers and we will wish you all well. We are doing our best here and our health are better.
The rainy season is on, but for a few days now we had a weather that was not rainy. As I type this email, however, rain is up the sky in Wotutu.
The past week in BVBIC-Wotutu went on well. Even though some are sick, it is not severe enough that we need to send them to see the doctor. Keep me in your prayers as I continue to recover. I am in need of some medication that will continue to help me through. Students were busy doing revisions as they prepare for examinations this week.
I went on a mission trip this weekend with some students. It takes a great deal to make mission possible. We must be prepared to walk on foot long distances because of bad roads. The bad road is making mission work extremely expensive, but because we know and recognize our calling, we must go. Many are perishing in sin and need the light of the gospel to shine in their dark world. Because of this, we cannot afford to relent our efforts no matter the weather conditions or bad roads.
In Wotutu the Lord is doing something great. Last week, a couple obeyed the gospel at the same time and this week, brother Amaboh and his wife both accepted the gospel. Our students pointed out the truth to them using an umbrella to protect their Bibles.
Brother Mendel baptized brother Amaboh into Christ. Today was his first time to worship God in the New Testament pattern. He was very happy to be part and pleaded with the church to hold his hands so that he will be strong and help many come in.
Sister Florence obeyed the gospel as well. They are married for just three months. They are eager to know more about Christ. We need a copy of the Bible in their hands, which will be the tool for them to use and fight the devil, as the devil will come many times to derail them. Keep them in your prayers as their family will see their growth and love of the church and that they may come to be part of this great family.
The husband and wife obeyed the gospel and it was awesome to see both of them having the same mind to follow the Lord.
Idenau mission was postponed because of the very bad weather to take students a virgin land like that.
Keep our students in your prayers as they start exams tomorrow. Next week, they will start short-courses on “Galatians” and the “Prison Epistles.” Keep praying for the instructors who will come and teach these books in your prayers.
Keep Brightland Christian Academy in your prayers as they start a new school year on the 7th of September. Brightland Christian is doing well.
Many thanks from our hearts for your love and deep concern over the work here. God bless you and replenish what you took to make sure this work is smooth. We continue to use our words because when we look around we do not have anything to pay you back. We know our God will reward you as He rewarded other faithful servants in times past and the time to come.
Do your best to share this report with others.
Elangwe and family
By His grace Director BVBIC-Wotutu
