Our congregation currently helps support Pascal Dlomo as a student at Southern Africa Bible College. This is a recent report from Pascal. In the report he will mention the Kelly Ward family as they also help support Pascal along with us. Keep Pascal in yourt thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D

I would like to pass my greeting to Kelley Ward family in the name of our Lord and redeemer Jesus Christ. It is my hope and prayer that this letter will reach you while still in good health and still in the Lord; pressing on the upward way. It is always nice to hear from you and writing to you is not burdensome to me. Thus I write with a smile on my face and with a heart full of gratitude as I
think of the support that you give to my studies and the blessing that you are to the College.

Though studying online had its challenges but your hope and prayers for adjustment were not completely in vain, since after some time of struggling with poor network; at last I was able to get a spot with better reception. Now concerning the riots; I was safe and far from them thus only saw them in the news, however I was not really able to avoid the problems that were a result of them and even the country felt the consequences of these riots and lootings. However it has been in my prayers that may God help us to rebuild what was destroyed and improve the economy.

The library’s improvement brought gladness to many of us and this we have in common with you as we are thankful to God and surely I am going use it more now that two weeks ago we came back to the College. Utilizing the library more, will add to my effectiveness in evangelizing which is really suffering at this point but I believe that this too shall pass. Everything has its time, just about the past two weeks we started with our exams and now their time has passed and we are now back to the time of attending classes physically which is better than online classes.

I am thankful for your prayers and it remains my prayer that may God continue blessing
you with your hearts’ desires if they are according to His will. May you all also grow in the
knowledge of the truth of the word of God. Please keep safe and take care, in God we trust.
May God bless the United States of America.
From: Nhlanhla Pascal Dlomo, student at Southern Africa Bible College
