More about: “A Helpful Service”
Two weeks ago, Andrew Cotton, a frequent visitor and professional nurse, offered his services to people who have health concerns and who need direction and recommendations as to what steps need to be taken. He let us have his phone number, but after thinking it through, he realized that, like most of us, he does not respond to numbers he does not recognize. So he requested, if anyone needs him, he/she should call the church office and then Helga will call him about the request.
South Africa Bible College Supported Student Report
It is a blessing to be able to support those training to spread the gospel. One of those is our brother Pascal whom we support at Southern Africa Bible College. This is a report from him. Please keep him in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
I would like to start off this letter by saying my greetings to you. It gives me a great pleasure to be able to write to you once gain hoping that this letter will reach you while you are healthy and safe from this pandemic. As I have heard of the situation there in America as far as the Covid-19 is concerned, I have not ceased to ask for better situations for you from the Lord.
I would like to inform you of my activities from the last time I wrote to you or to inform you even of my future plans. Now about the activities, the truth of the matter is that I have not been that much active lately. This lack of activity came as a result of the country been under lockdown as it attempts to limit the spread of this virus. The country’s activities restrictions also disabled me from going around preaching as I had hoped to do when I got home, although spreading God’s word through other means has been good too. Now my time is mostly not all spent indoors cleaning the house, doing my school work and even cooking. These days the college has finally been able to resume studies online which bring some relief from all the worrying about having to go back to the college during these dangerous times for traveling and living.
But the nice thing about being under this lockdown is that I have been able to spend a lot of time with my family, since the schools were told to close down; thus we had to leave the college and go home. During the early stage of the lockdown I was busy working on my assignments and as time went on I was able to get them all submitted. Though it was a bit difficult to get any school work done at first, give that at home there are lots of disturbances.
Another thing that I would like to share as far as my family is concerned is that there has been an additional family member. That is to say, I am now an uncle of two as I count my few months old niece. I am also thankful that so far none of my family members have been infected by this virus and for being in the area where we are free from this virus.
It has been nice writing to you though not much said given the current situation of activity restriction. I real appreciate the time you have put in reading this letter, may everything be well with you and God bless you. This pandemic is not God’s word, thus I feel free and right to say that it too shall pass.
Thank you for your support. Take care and keep safe. God is in control thus trust and obey.
