How wonderful it is to see a messenger coming across the mountains, bringing good news, the news of peace! He announces victory and says to Zion, "Your God is king!" - Isaiah 52:7
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.
Do pray for our church ministries – your influence goes far further than you can imagine! I received an email from a lady now living in Scotland in which she said “This morning, as I was praying for you all at Claremont Baptist, I suddenly remembered how very long ago I was born again through the ministry of CBC - it was 76 years ago that I gave my heart to the Lord as my Saviour, and 70 years ago, I was baptised there.” Everyone who is involved in some ministry is doing a work that has life changing and eternal results!
September is going to be a very busy month as we count down the days to the start of the 2014 Baptist Union Assembly. Strandfontein Baptist is excited at the privilege of hosting the Assembly in their 1 000-seater auditorium. Two neighbouring churches will be used for breakaway sessions and the meals will be served in a brand new School Hall close by. Accommodation will be in Chalets in surrounding areas and in homes within the community. We are looking forward to welcoming our Baptist family back to Cape Town once again. We also extend an invitation to the WPBA family to attend the evening meetings, these will be open to the public. We will have a special guest speaker Pastor Michael Okwakol from Zimbabwe. Please pray for all the arrangements that still have to be completed as well as for all those who will minister at te Assembly.
Pray for all those involved in exams and other forms of assessments in schools at this time.
Sunday 21 September
