DEAR BRETHREN, FLOCK OF GOD: NOVEMBER 2021
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” 1Corinthians 15:58
We thank God for the blessing of being able to inform you of the work that has been entrusted unto us in this part of the world.
Since their arrival, Eric and his family have been participating in the church activities, in the soul winning reunions, as well as participating in preaching during the services of Thursdays and Sundays.
They have been a great blessing because now we can have classes targeted to each age. The youth, the young ladies and adults now have their own classes.
In the “Mount Abarim Educational Center”, we are organizing our students lists, since many children enrolled during this month, although the classes started since October. This happened because of the lack of work, their parents enrolled them a little too late.
For the time being we continue with the normal activities of the church and the school, however, through the news we heard about the new Covid variant which has emerged in southern Africa, and we do not know if there will be new restrictions in the country.
There was a lot of document control to foreigners during the first week of this month, without minding the nationality or activity that they carried out in the country, they were incarcerated despite them having all their document, just for being foreigners.
The situation calmed down a bit, because in many neighbor countries that had Equatoguineans residing in their country started to do the same with them. Therefore, it was decided to give 3 months to all foreigners to regulate their current situation. Since the ministry responsible for the missionaries does not respond to our request for the permanency documents, we have requested them by other means, we had to pay for my wife and me a total of 500,000 CFA francs. (1,000.00 dollars) please pray
that they will be granted to us.
Our trust is in the Lord, we know that it will be harder to remain in this place, but as long as our God allows it, we will continue to reap spiritual fruit and teaching the word of God to anyone who want to listen. We thank each of you who in one way or another are aware of the work that is being carried out in this place, thank you for all your prayer and financial support that allows us to continue forward, your efforts are not in vain, spiritual fruit is being added to your heavenly account. Let us remain faithful until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We take the opportunity to wish you happy holidays and New Year’s Eve. Greetings and until next time
