Greetings in the Name of the Lord! We have much to be thankful for this month. AFC is a wonderful partnership of supporting churches and donors with church planters across Africa, who give their lives to see the Kingdom of Christ established. Our Partners are based in the USA, UK and South Africa. Please find in this update:
* USA Trip to visit Partners
* Partnership with Veritas Bible Training
Looking for Partners in Houston, USA
USA Trip to Visit Partners Jeremy was in the USA for more than two weeks, visiting four different States, where we have existing AFC partnerships with both churches and individuals. Heritage Christian Church in Columbus was the first port of call, and there were several fruitful meetings with both individuals, a Life Group, and a larger group at the Church. Aside from these meetings God had a miracle in store through a second church in Columbus which partners with AFC, called North Church. They had been unable to send support to AFC for 2018 and 2019, and had recently had their pastor resign. After a meeting with the head Elder from the church, he presented Jeremy with a cheque for AFC which covered all the support for 2018, 2019 and some extra for goodwill !!! Jehovah Jireh !!
Jeremy also visited churches in Houston, Texas and in Columbia , South Carolina. In both places partnerships were renewed and commitments made to support AFC.
Jeremy completed his trip with presenting workshops at a large missions conference in North Carolina - 1000 churches attend the conference. New potential church partnerships were established in that time. Praise God for a fruitful trip !
Veritas training group of AFC and other local pastors - 2018
( Sadly Carl, in the centre , was the trainer and passed away earlier this year)
Veritas Bible Training
For several years now AFC in South Africa has been partnering with Veritas Bible Training. This course was designed to train rural pastors across the globe in basic Bible Interpretation skills and guidance in how to prepare teachings for the church. It covers the whole Bible and is in 4 Modules - each one takes a week . Jeremy met with the Director for Southern Africa in Stellenbosch recently, and new plans have been formalized to both train AFC pastors as Veritas Trainers , but also to roll out the teaching of several modules for AFC church planters in various venues. It is our goal to have all AFC church planters complete at least 2 Modules during their time with the mission.
- a successful USA partner trip
- our partnership with Veritas
- God's faithful financial provision for AFC
Please pray for:
- health and strength for our Church Planters
- Follow up of USA partners
- 2nd Adopt Training in May
Thank you for your faithful partnership, prayers and financial provision for the work of Jesus through AFC - you are greatly appreciated!
