Dear Brothers and Sisters and Supporters,
We greet you in the beautiful and precious name of Jesus-Christ our Savior and Lord. We thank you very much for your supports of all kinds.
The Word of God tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”
We give thanks for all that we have encountered as trials, challenges, and difficulties of all kinds; but also, all the blessings the Lord has showered on us.
My wife, Florence, and I celebrated our fourteenth wedding anniversary on December 29. We bless the name of the Lord for his support which has never failed us.
For the year 2021 which has ended, my wife, children and I have all taken turns being sick, but the Lord healed us.
As you already know, in addition to my ministry, I am obliged to work in an NGO which helps children and young people living with a disability simply because the church cannot financially fully support me and my family. We have been informed that our income in this NGO will be reduced in this year 2022, due to the consequences of COVID-19 which has considerably reduced the financial capacity of the NGO. But for us, children of God, we have faith that our Heavenly Father will take care of us and meet our needs.
In the ministry, we also thank God our Father. The year 2021 was a year of harvest: many people receive Jesus-Christ as their Savior and began attending Sunday services with us; some even come to Thursday night meetings where we come to pray. This is a great source of joy for us and it is the occasion here to say a big thanks to the God Who builds His Church, and thanks also to you who have never ceased to support us in prayer. God bless you for that, too. Prayer Requests:- Pray for us so that for this year 2022 the Lord provides for our needs by increasing our financial resources so that my family and I have enough to meet our needs and not to serve in sorrow.- Pray for the new converts in our assembly, for spiritual growth in each of them; pray especially for those who attend baptismal classes, so that they understand their duties and responsibilities as disciples.- Let us pray that the harvest will be doubled or even tripled in 2022 as compared to 2021. Hebrews 6:10 “For God not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
