Jesus answered him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me. - John 14:6
Following our 40 days of growth here is a check list:
Our ministry continues to know the blessing of the Lord. The prayer movement is gaining momentum as we trust God for renewal, revival and restoration. A dedicated group of people continues to meet in our home every Thursday evening as we intercede for the salvation of men and women and for a host of other requests. From time to time the Lord surprises us with some tangible answers to prayer. One of our favorite slogans is this : “ When we go to pray, God goes to work. “ During Easter some special meetings were held. It culminated with a Sunrise service at 6 am on our rooftop in the village where we live. This is a significant breakthrough. ….. Our vision however is to see the church emerge in this locality. At present there is no other Christian witness. Please join us in praying for breakthroughs in this regard. Our ministry in the area where we are seeking to plant the Gospel – is gaining momentum. Bridges continue to be built and relationships strengthened as we trust Him. We believe that the Lord is going to surprise us one day with the harvest He is going to bring forth. That village is being saturated with prayer and we believe that day is going to come. Join us in praying for light to come where there is darkness and for life to come where there is death.
When you pray for our church family, why not contact them – either phone call, sms, email etc – and let them know that they have been in your thoughts and prayers. This will be a great encouragement to all.
Please pray for the call committee as we consider the position of Youth Pastor for 2015 and beyond. We had our first meeting on Tuesday this week and the 2nd meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 15th.
The Western Province Baptist Association’s director – Rev Clive Jacobs writes:
As we reach the halfway mark of 2014, I look back over the past six months with gratitude. The WPBA is blessed with a wonderfully diverse family, an infrastructure that works, and a unique ethos. These factors make us who and what we are as an Association. Let us continue to work together as we support one another. Always on my heart is the support of our Church Planters, as we commit to continue helping them plant new churches. Also we need to address the social needs of our communities, ministering to the whole person. Let’s continue to build together upon our solid foundation.
Sunday 7th September is the day we are inviting Claremont back to church. At our Pastors’ meeting yesterday, there was a real sense of excitement and unity as all the churches work together to plan this event. If you want to be part of the team at CBC that plans this, please get hold of Rob Swan.
