THE GOOD NEWS THAT BRINGS REAL PEACE AND GREAT JOY!
world that is in turmoil and war.
In light of this incredible story and what it means to us as a family, we take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Our prayer and sincere wishes for you in 2010 is best expressed in Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1:17-19.
Let me take this opportunity to thank you for your prayers and encouragements since assuming this new assignment back on the continent of Africa as Africa Area Presbyter. As with all new assignment, there are usually some challenges; however, God has been good! He provides us with the needed grace, courage and patience. My wife and I feel quite resolute about the future, and what the Lord would have us to do on the continent.
Since our appointment, I visited the following countries providing leadership training, mentorship and preaching the Good News: Ghana, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Benin, Congo-Brazzaville and Togo. The Lord has blessed greatly in these times of sharing, in fact, I am scheduled to return in 2010 God’s willing to do similar harvest work. I have been involved in the transitional process of two new French groups expressing their desires to join the Church of God of Prophecy; these groups are in the countries of Togo and Cameroon respectively. Once the process is completed we could see approximately seven to eight thousand (7,000/ 8,000) new members added to the Church of God of Prophecy. Yes, the Lord is at work and we can truly say that we are experiencing the fulfillment of St. John 4: 38 “I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.”
My wife was able to be with me on the last trip for 2009. We participated in two national conventions: Cameroon and Togo.
