is chomping at the bit!
The first time we saw Alex Masanta he was wearing
dreadlocks. After a few times of attending church he
received Christ and one of the first things he did was to
change his hair style. The next transformation took place at
youth camp when he surrendered his life to be used of God.
He then enrolled in Bible College and after four years
graduated in September of 2012. After teaching in Sunday
School for some time during his college years, Alex was
chomping at the bit to start preaching.
A short term missionary who has been working with us needed
some help in starting a new work, so Alex has his
opportunity to interpret and to preach and teach. One of the
exciting things about this new work at Machiya is that Alex
had lived there sometime back and speaks Lamba, as they do
in that area. Pray for this new work and Alex and Wade.
After requesting prayer for repairs on Pastor George’s
church roof, a church responded to the need and the people
at Grace Baptist are now happy that their leaks are fixed.
How wonderful when God’s people respond so readily to the
needs of others. Thank you for your earnest prayers.
The reason for praise
On January 18
Don underwent a catharitization, angioplasty, and the
implanting of a stent on his heart. As a result, he needs to
be on a blood thinner for six months and therefore cannot
have knee surgery, which he had planned to do. So… Mona is
seeing a surgeon this week about replacing her other knee.
We do count on and earnestly covet your prayers.
YOU are the reason for our praise! Every time we receive our
financial reports and see your faithfulness in supporting us
and our works (four churches and B.B.C.Z.) in Zambia, we are
filled with praise. We are thankful for hearts that can be
touched with our needs and desires to further the work God
has called us to do. Without your partnership in this work
we would be unable to continue. May God richly bless you for
your giving and your prayers for us.
