Greetings In Jesus Name! Trust you are knowing God's goodness. We are thankful for His continued Grace over the mission.We will often be featuring some of our church planters and this month we focus on Henry in Malawi and Thandisizwe in the Eastern Cape.
Henry sharing with a Muslim friend
Near the Southern shores of Lake Malawi is a village called Salima, when Henry Chibwana and his family minister. He is one of the AFC church planters that have chosen to focus on the Muslim communities in that area. He recently spent time training other pastors and believers in that area and they then went on outreach into the community. Henry sent this report: "It gives me joy to see that the Holy Spirit harvested some Moslem souls into the Kingdom of God after the pastors went out to witness. One young lady called Dunia renounced Islam and came to the training the following day. Pastor Emmanue witnessed to a family of six Moslems and they all received Christ and joined his church. Pastors are continuing to witness even until now after the training ." Henry has a large group of children he is also working with from that community, building bridges with their families and trusting for fruit.
A fruitful Ministry - Thandisizwe in Addo
Addo , Eastern Cape, South Africa Thandisizwe Matabese has been church planting in the village of Addo for 18 months now. He has seen some wonderful progress in his Discovery Bible Study groups, having now seen 22 of them formed in different homes. Many are 'seeker' groups where the household is not yet believers. He spends Sunday afternoons coaching his group leaders and has seen second and third generation groups formed. Thandisizwe has also taken very seriously his role in our 'Adopt a village ' programme and has helped start some gardens as well as refuse recycling. He has also started a soccer team for street kids and helps the most needy kids with after school lessons. We praise God for this servant of the Lord, and for His Hand upon him over this initial season.
