NEWS FROM BROTHERS & SISTERS
worldwide is `Where are we heading?' Our Heavenly Father has chosen us to walk towards His Kingdom, so our destination is in no doubt. We have assurance and a guidebook better than any in the world can offer us. How does this make us feel? We are not tourists â this is the walk of a lifetime. When Israel left Egypt they could have made a journey similar to Abram's, but it took them forty years to arrive. We know that we, just like them, will find difficulties on the road, and at times we long to see sight of our destination, but we hope that, unlike them, we will learn the appropriate lessons as soon as we are tested.
`Wherefore, lift up the hands which hang down and strengthen the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord' (Heb.12:12-14).
I am a Secondary School student, 3rd year, and I need your prayers, letters from young girls and boys in Christ, in order to encourage each other, if Jesus remains away. God bless you ALL.
I would like to take this opportunity to report the falling asleep in Christ of our dear beloved and lovely sister Matilda Ngoroke of the Central ecclesia in Mbeya .
May the Lord strengthen every one who knows her and working capability to serve the Lord the Most High. She was a very hard working Sister in our missionary trips. We made many trips with her and she was an example to many who travelled with her. Please find her picture attached. We made a missionary trip together with brother Carl and sister Danielle Hinton from the U.k last April and three other local brothers from Tanzania in Morogoro area. and Sister Matilda was also part of the trip. and this was her last trip with us. You see her sitting next to brother Burtton Manasse the oldest brother in our group. We expect to see her soon in the kingdom of God to come soon here on the earth.
Bro. John Mathias, our Linkman, gave me a book called `How to Grow a Balanced Diet,' which I think many other people will be using, as these books can change the lives of those who are living in the poor areas of the country.
Since our Ecclesia was formed we have experienced a very hard situation when a brother went away with the Ecclesia's books. I wish to request replacement books like `Teach Yourself the Bible,' `Wrested Scriptures' by Bro. R. Abel, leaflets, Bibles and Sunday School material etc.
I was baptized on 25th Jan. 2007, in the Name of Jesus Christ, (Rom.10:9-11; John 3:16- 17), by Bro. W. Fredrick, Peter and Godfrey Egussa of Butcho and Sumim respectively. I am now the Secretary for the Svaule Ecclesia, and the Lord has off-loaded my burdens.
