It was such a blessing to baptise the couple who got saved, in their own back garden. The sun came out too, just for the baptism. Please pray for J & L as they are wanting to grow and gain strength in their sincere walk with the Lord.
Weekly GAM tv in Swahili
We are so pleased that God gave us the resources to start our weekly Gospel Alive Ministries Africa broadcast in Swahili each Sunday at 7 pm on youtube and Facebook. Each Sunday we have a different focus. Please pray that God will use this channel to save souls, encourage and equip them. This is our programme:
1st Sun: Gospel
2nd Sun: Youth
3rd Sun: Biblical Teaching
4th Sun: Q&A (from the month)
5th Sun: Workshop
Book in German/Swahili/Spanish
Finally,… finally, the book has come out in German, Spanish and Swahili. It has been a long and difficult ride, with many obstacles we have had to overcome. We have certainly felt the intense spiritual battle behind it, to a deep degree. Please pray for our protection, and that many will get free from bondages through reading and applying the principles in the book.
We make the Swahili version downloadable for free from our website so that all the African countries can have access to it. Our focus is more on making the material readily available to those who need it most. As you can imagine, people in Africa do not have the funds to purchase books or even downloads. There is not much Christian material in Swahili compared to English. So, it will be particularly good. This edition will also go to different Bible Colleges all over Tanzania and eventually further a field too. Some colleges are already waiting for the physical books to use within their course.
Thank you so much for your prayers! They have certainly been answered.
We had been looking for a house for over five months within 40, and sometimes even more, miles radius. We had many viewings and spent uncountable hours on the internet for house searches and filling in applications. Several times we were going to get a house and then the landlord decided over the weekend to sell it instead of renting it out. We could write the next book ‘The House Hunt’ :-).
Through all that time we placed our trust in God. Was it easy? Sometimes it was, and sometimes it wasn’t. The ‘roller coasters’ up and down were so frequent which kept us looking up to God and not to the circumstances. Thankfully we had some faith training in the past on quite a few occasions in our lives which made this experience a bit easier. We have literally experienced
Commit your way to the LORD Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
We are living in times where our trust needs to develop into ‘ultimate trust in God’ in every aspect of life. We feel very much that this has helped our faith in God to be fortified and strengthened, that’s all to His goodness and grace.
We have had to seriously deep clean the house, literally from top to bottom, which has proved very draining and exhausting in more ways than one, however we are so very thankful to the Lord for this well laid out property. The boys have been settled since day one, and for that we are sincerely grateful to the Lord.
And now that we are ‘getting there’ practically we are all enjoying it. We had hoped to be finished by middle of May, but unfortunately, we weren’t able to, (we are looking forward to getting back into, a long disturbed, routine), but hope to have a ‘second wind’ to push through to finish soon.
Huge thank you for your prayer-support!
