Keep your prayers up for this program.
Arusha church of Christ
The Arusha congregation has been growing numerically for the past few months. As we continue to reach more with the saving Gospel of Christ, we thought it also necessary to put an internal check to the flock. We have increased more visitation and small group Bible classes during the week days in members homes. Last year we ended up having 72 souls obey the gospel, and 43 out of these are still faithful to the church. As we all know, Arusha is one of the business cities in Tanzania with a lot of tourist activities going on. 15 people who were baptized, went back to their local areas, and are still faithful. The leaders of the church have made it possible for them to be connected to the preachers in their hometowns.
The good news is that, for those who could not find the church of Christ in their places are still learning and growing in faith through listening to our radio program each week. Speaking of a radio program, for the past few week I have been receiving more calls for people who want to study with us more on the Bible. A number of people have been visiting our worship service and mid week Bible classes. Since we are aired on the second most popular radio in town, the statistics show that more than 400,000 people are listening to us each week. Please continue to keep your prayers going up for this effort.
