I would like you to send some more copies of Old and New Testament Bibles to give to others; I have received two out of eight. In number we are now increasing, with those baptized and expecting to be. Last week the Aba brethren baptized some students, whom I sent to see them. I heard from them through those interviewed who live in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria, that they are to worship in Rivers State, not at home, except if they return home on weekends or public holidays, when they will join us.
We are living in the last days, waiting for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ to this earth, for which we are praying. We pray for you also and thank God for your recovery from the sickness that worried you. May the Lord be with you: remember us in your prayers.

Bro. Paul & Sis. Leonie Verster accompanied by Bre. Ollie Mahopo and Emmanuel Mphambo made a trip to Bloemfontein to baptize two more students from Kroonstad:
this time Bre. SAMSON MATSEPE & JAPIE MTAKANE. After Bro. Emmanuel had
delivered a spirited seminar on One Bible
Many Churches - Why? The interviews were
conducted late into the Saturday night by the Bloemfontein brothers. On Sunday we greatly rejoiced in witnessing the two baptisms and added to that joy, were two more requests from Bloemfontein students to be baptized. God willing, these will be done later.
The two newly baptized brethren with Bro. Phakiso Mophethe, also from Kroonstad, visited the Soweto ecclesia to meet the brethren and sisters and experience how a meeting is run.
Our dear Bro. James Sithole, (75) was brutally mugged last week at dusk when he and his niece were returning home after walking his cousin to catch a taxi at the Protea Gardens. He was attacked and struck on the head with a blunt metal bar and was left without his cell phone, and all his money was taken. He was rushed to a clinic where his two awful gashes on the head were stitched up; of course he is all bruised. His niece thankfully was only bruised. His head is full of stitches which testify to the fact that he could easily have been killed. Despite his ordeal he supported the literature stand on Friday... Bro. James is a great example of steadfast endurance. His attendance to the memorial is unaltered.
Thank you for the CD you sent recently. Our Heavenly Father enabled me to make visits to Dodoma five times on different dates. With His blessing I succeeded with the work which I started. Now there are interested people intending to understand the Word of God. I am very thankful for all you sent me for my project of spreading the Word of God, you and others in the UK and for your helping hand.

Hoping that by Gods grace you are all okay. Thanks for your letter; I see that you have had a recent medical challenge; I have been praying for you and hope things have greatly improved.
Thanks to God I am O.K. I had been living in a sort of dream world for some time, thinking a lot about being out there, and expecting to be outside soon for things looked very promising. Everything was in place for us to leave prison, and after 20 years behind bars I could almost taste
