THANK YOU

Our dear friends, Again thanks so much for your cards and prayers in the death of my brother. We love and appreciate you all! Harold & Sarah Hancock

THESE CHANGES ARE NOW HERE:

March 6th: Concerning the men who are serving at the Lord’s Table: only the man in position #2 will say all the prayers. If there are any additional men who would be willing to serve in the “no prayer” positions, please let one of the elders or Joe know.

March 27th: Our monthly Fellowship Meal, on the last Sunday of the month, will take place from now on, after our morning worship assembly. On those Sundays, our combined adult Bible classes will meet in the auditorium so that the ones hosting can work on the preparations for the meal. Afterwards, will have a devotional and then we will be dismissed for the day.

I Corinthians 3: 7 “So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

What follows is a short message from Comfort Mafunda, the young man that our congregation helps support in his studies at the South Africa Bible College.

I greet you all brothers and sister in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

By God’s grace I passed all my modules and I’m looking forward for my second year. Thank you for helping the college. Your contributions are not in vain we are gaining knowledge so that we can help the Kingdom of God to grow. During the December I baptized one person in a congregation in the Eastern Cape to where I usually go and help in preaching the gospel. This year as I’m doing my second year I’m working with the congregation that is in the nearby Nursing College. So things are good there but the problem is that most of those students are not in the church so it’s our duty to find a way in helping them see the light. I really need your prayers that God may help me to be able to discipline myself so that I can manage to balance my college work and preaching the Good News. I hope one day I’ll meet you even if not in this life but in the life to come. Peace be with you. Yours in Christ, Comfort Mafunda

What a blessing to be allowed by God to be a fellow worker in growth of His kingdom. Continue to keep our brother Comfort in your prayers and that the Lord can continue to use us all, as fellow workers, to His glory. For the elders, Ken D
