“Not in that poor, lowly stable, with oxen standing by, we shall see Him; but in heaven, set at God’s right hand on high; When like stars His children crowned. All in white shall wait around.” Once in Royal David’s City, by Cecil Frances Alexander (1848) Music: IRBY
Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year, our faithful partners in ministry.
As 2023 ends, we thank our Heavenly Father Who has been faithful to our family and His work.
On November 4th, Leah and the pastors’ wives had a wonderful prayer day. From November 12th, we had the church elections. Thanks for your prayers. We had a baptism for some girls from our local high school and some 16 young people from the church. We also had VBS, and 30 kids accepted Jesus as their Savior. On December 12, Leah had the joy and privilege of praying with Steve who also gave his life to the Lord. He was among the 16 who were baptized. We also had child dedication.
The feeding programs are going on well. We thank the Lord for providing funds so that some of the people can be assisted with food. The cost of living is high and some of the people do not have jobs.
Lord willing, we are expecting some mission teams in 2024. Please pray for them as they prepare. By God’s grace, our family is doing well. Our grandchildren, Aziza and Zefania, are growing well. We praise the Lord for providing a job for our son, Paul jr. Thank you for praying for him.
For all the young people who gave their lives to the Lord
For Paul jr.’s job
For the teams who are planning to come
For the new church leaders, that God will give them wisdom
Again, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year
Thank you very much for all you do.
May the Lord bless you.
Paul and Leah
