ACSOP January 2019 Report.
I would like to salute you and thank our God for the blessing of new year. Happy new year 2019 to every one. God have blessed us with new year again so we have all reason t o thank Him. Without doubt God is blessing every one who loves and serving Him. I hope this year will be bright toward those who will be serving Him. And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28.
I would like to share with you what happened on the end of December. December was busy month when every one was working had to serve the Lord in Tanzania Christian Camp. Tanzania Christian Camp is one of the program that is run by Andrew Connally School Of Preaching for the purpose of creating good relationship with congregations and help young men to desire to join ACSOP one day. We thank brother John Rice and Burt Fuller for join us in this camp. It is not easy for someone to leave his home at the end of year to travel away from the family, but these two men did that for the Lord. This camp was able to accommodate one hundred and eighty campers and twenty three teachers and chancellors which total of the attendance was two hundred and three. Most of these campers their of twelve year above, who most of them were able to understand what was taught. One of surprising thing, I and brother Koimere from Monduli we picked long and tough memory verses which we thought are tough for them, but over one hundred campers finished memorizing their verses.
Another thing that have touch every ones heart is the way this young men receive the word and applied it. After teachers and chancellors saw there numbers of campers are not Christian we set a special class for them. We had one class of thirty five people who were learning the Gospel. After serious Bible class in two days with a lot of questions twenty four of them obeyed the Gospel. One of those who were baptized is a boy of twenty years old from Mombasa Kenya who is coming from a Muslim family. Personally I thank God for this new Christian generation. Theme of this year was “spiritual glasses”, this can help us to have more knowledge.
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God (Col 1:9-10. NKJV)
Please let us continue to pray for the Lord’s work in Tanzania, especially the Andrew Connally School Of Preaching. We have all reason to thank God and you for the big role that you are serving in ACSOP and in His kingdom. Its my prayers that all goes well with you and all may be for the glory of our Lord.
In His service,
