Beloved in Jesus,      We greet you all and hope the Lord has ushered you into the new year on good terms. I wish you all a Happy New Year 2022. May the promise contained in Psalm 65: 11 ” Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.”, be your sharing this new year. By the grace of God, I am well, as well as are my wife and our two children. We have started the year 2022 well by His grace, in good health. Our brothers and sisters in faith are also well and bring you their greetings. Various meetings marked the end of 2021 with their share of testimonies and gratitude to the Lord for all His benefits. Christmas Eve on December 24 was an occasion to celebrate the birth of Jesus. On this occasion, various presentations by the children of our Sunday school classes marked the celebration in a special way. It is wonderful to see the children introduce Jesus to other children like them and also to adults through songs, poems, and sketches. We also have an annual meeting of worship celebrated to the glory of our God. This year it took place on January 9, 2022 in Zopah. It was a time of fellowship, sharing and announcing the Good News. During this meeting, each church bears witness to what God has accomplished fo r it in the year that has just ended. We give thanks to God for all He has done for us in general and in particular: many have been sick but God has given them healing, the construction project of the church of Zopah will soon start, the Porto-Novo church in particular registered five new young people who accepted the Lord and joined the church. In view of all this, we can say like the psalmist: ” The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.” Ps 126: 3 Our wish is that this overflowing joy will continue to be our share throughout this new year, not only for us but also for you, dear beloved partners in mission. Thank you for your prayers and continued ministry support. May the Lord Who owes nothing to anyone bless you all, and always fill you with His grace, beyond all your expectations. Pastor Rock
