Today, we kicked of our very first Xhosa Bible Study in the Missionvale area where we are looking to start a church! I was extremely excited to see 9 people (10 if you count me) attend!
I am even more excited to report to you all that SEVEN out of the nine made professions of faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior! Two the these folks were Thulasizwe’s mom and dad! I know that he has been praying for their salvation for quite some time!
Another one that accepted Christ as his Savior was Raymond; the young man I mentioned yesterday that Thulasizwe invited to church! As I was taking him home he told me, “I realized tonight that I know about God, but I didn’t know God. I know now that I will be in Heaven because of Jesus dying for me!”
Please continue to pray as we take the next steps in our bible study. Next week, we will do a review of biblical salvation, and begin setting up discipleship meetings as we can! God sure is good!
Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and support for our family and ministry!
