Baptisms

This month we baptized four students from University of Johannesburg, Auckland Park and Doornfontein Campus. This is a direct result of establishing the UJ society. We expected that the society would bear results and our expectation was justified. It was evident that we only had May, before the break, to fully engage the students and our diligence paid off. The students are Phophi and Tracy first year Bcom accounting students. Puseletso an education student and Gudani second year Civil engineering student from Doorfontein Campus. They all attended visitors class this year. Gusani has been visiting from last year and she attended on Fridays and was in the visitor’s class this year. It is encouraging to see students obeying the gospel. We are crediting our current students for their evangelistic attitude. In the last 5 years we have been teaching the students to teach others. They carry out their responsibility to the great commission.

New Converts

Our new converts class is growing. As indicated in the past, we are deliberate about our teaching. The group has grown to eight brethren, and we teach them accordingly. We started teaching about worship, which in turn leads to the teaching about the church. During the university break, we use WhatsApp as a medium for teaching. The plan is to continue with the physical class next semester. We prepare them to defend the gospel and teach their friends and to assure them about the salvation they have received.
