First and foremost, we want to thank you for the support that you continually offer on our behalf, both as a family and as a church. We are grateful to the Lord for the many times you have remembered us in prayer and for the sacrificial support that you have rendered to us financially.
As many commemorated World AIDS Day on December 1, Monze was not excluded. As a church, we took advantage of this event by distributing evangelistic material. During the inter-denominational candlelight service, we handed out leaflets entitled, AIDS! A Call to Repentance, written by Pastor Conrad Mbewe. The response was overwhelming, and we eventually ran out of the 150 leaflets that we had brought.
Also in December, I was accorded an opportunity to preach again to the men and women in uniform at the Monze Central Police Station. Every Tuesday at the main police station they have half-hour morning devotions. Twenty police officers attended.
We ended 2014 with a Christmas evangelistic service, which was well attended. We were blessed to have some of our brethren from Kafue Reformed Baptist Church, including Pastor Kennedy Sunkutu (former HeartCry missionary), come to the service.
Though the new year began with the loss of my grandmother in January, we remain grateful to the Lord for all that He has done so far through us for His own glory. My family has now grown to four people, as my young brother Gift Mutale has come to live with us.
During the months of January and February, we did not have any special evangelistic meetings, but simply continued with our usual church services. We also continued to acquire and transport building materials to the church plot. Lord willing, if all goes according to plan, we will start building there this year so that we may eventually move and begin meeting there. Please pray with us to this end.
On March 7, we held a men’s Bible study on “A Christian and Politics,” which was ably handled by our brother Mr. Kuelly Tembo at his home. While we men met together, the ladies also gathered together for a prayer meeting on the same day.
Please, brothers, continue to pray for my family and me, that we may continue to grow in the likeness of Christ and set a godly example for the rest of the congregation. Pray also for our congregation as a whole, that we may grow both spiritually and numerically unto the glory of God and the spread of His Gospel.
