For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Rom 8:18 KJV). But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1Co 15:57).
Sheilah and I would like to thank God for honoring the prayers of the righteous across the globe. Your prayers, encouragement, and financial support have been so instrumental for us during the most difficult moments when I have been in and out of hospital every month undergoing chemotherapy. Regardless of the myriad of side effects that I have been facing, our Heavenly Father has continued to strengthen me and praise the Lord for the strength of going through this process of treatment. I am now left with appointments for the doctor’s review after every two months but am doing well and able to discharge my God’s given mandate of “evangelizing the sinners and edifying the saints”.
Macedonia Baptist Church continues to flourish numerically and spiritually. We continue to see folks joining the church through one-on-one evangelistic campaigns. Our Men have remained steadfast in reaching the lost once every month collectively as a church. In the past two months we have seen seven people committing their life to Jesus, and in April we had water Baptism …where 20 folks were Baptized. Indeed, through your support and encouragement we are able to serve our own Jerusalem! Praise the Lord for His blessings on outreach, indeed together we are reaching the world for Christ!
We really appreciate your prayers and monetary support towards our church construction. The Construction is still in progress and currently we need about $ 21,000 to enable us finish up the inside foundation. This is very key, as it will pave the way for us leaving the tent and moving into the building. The rains have really been tough on us and the cold when we meet for worship inside the tent, but praise the Lord that folks have continued to be steadfast in meeting for worship. Kindly keep praying with us and in case God lays anything on your heart, don’t hesitate to send any donation designated for “Church construction” to IGM at Rochester.
May the Lord Who is, continue to shower His blessings upon you as you remain faithful in serving our LORD. Shalom!
