We have been patiently
teaching a soul winning program to our church and two weeks
ago we organized teams of three. Last week 18 people went
out to witness in our community. When they returned for a
report they had led two souls to Christ and several had
promised to come to church. This was definitely a good
kick-off! They are excited about not only telling others
what Christ did for them, but what He wants to do for the
person they are visiting. Evangelism is exploding at Bethel
Temple Baptist Mission, begun by our son Daniel, hosted
a fellowship meeting for the pastors. Johnathan Ngona
preached from Jeremiah 20 and reminded us how discouraged
Jeremiah had been when they placed him in the stocks and he
vowed not to speak of God again. …But God’s Word burned in
his heart and he couldn’t help himself. His main point was
in verse 11, “But the Lord is with me…”, thus encouraging us
that God is certainly with us and we should continue to
speak of Him faithfully no matter what. Jonathan is a
pastor-in-training and will ultimately become the pastor of
that church. (The Pastors’ children especially enjoyed the
Kaonga’s daughter sends a silent a message,
“Don’t touch my cupcake!”
Two and a half months ago Everlyn Nsalange was having extensions
sewn into her hair, and the lady broke the needle she was using.
A piece about a quarter of an inch long entered her head and it
has been causing her a tremendous amount of pain. She has had
three x-rays taken and it only showed up on one of them. Dr.
Simutowe recommends that she go to another city to get a CT scan
done, hoping that will show where the needle is located. Please
join us in prayer for her. Evelyn is a vital part of her
husband’s ministry at Faith Baptist and of our fellowship.
Also, a cardiologist just
tested Pastor Ken’s wife, Indira, to see if she had Takayasu,
discovered by a Japanese doctor. This is a condition where a
person can have high and low blood pressure in different parts
of the body at the same time causing inflammation in the
arteries. Normally it is fatal. Thankfully, she has a minor
case. She too, is invaluable to the work here.
Thanks for making this report possible.
Without your help we could not be here in Zambia representing
you. We are thankful to be an extension of your ministry to the
Zambian people. May we each continue to bear fruit that Christ
may be glorified. Please pray for our health and for wisdom to
discern God’s will in this work that God has called us to.
