Hendri Viljoen reporting from South Africa
The Sunday school in Tembisa has grown to about 50 children and it keeps on getting bigger, no matter rain or wind they are there some of them travel about 20 minutes + to get to Sunday school.
We are trying to get the youth class also to a bigger number but the older children in the town ships are not so keen on coming to Sunday school and those who want to come have to go to school but we will get there.
The youth class are starting to bond very good now we are getting a lot of interesting questions from them, they all want to learn how to live according to the bible. I have got 7 kids in my youth class ages starting at 16 and the oldest being 18.
APHIWE GOOD NEWS CENTRE:
I am still doing my lunch time bible class at Aphiwe on Tuesdays afternoon all is going well we have got an average of 2 people a class and is starting to get a whole lot better and more attendees.
We put up a roof at the front door so if it start to rain more people can come and it does not rain into the front door any more.
Leona and myself is making arrangements to do a wood work and cooking course from Aphiwe, there is a demand from all the ladies that is on the crèche course for a cooking course, I am going to enjoy that.
BIBLE EDUCATION CENTRE:
The BEC has moved to the one door, there is a whole les noise and more people coming we have a lot of people we signing up for the Gods master plan course and the 22 lesson course. Every time we are there more and more people come to us and say that we are doing a wonderful job in spreading Gods word.
I think more and more people are coming back to God, nobody can do anything without the help of God
I went to install a new toilet and basin in the crèche for all the small kids it involved removing a old bath tub and re-doing the plumbing and keeping the small ones out and telling them to put down your tools. I took the son of Yolanda (house of safety) with me as he went to study to become a plumber and never got to finish his course, he said that he learned a lot and there were some moments that we had to think very hard on what we need to do next. Liezl also had her hands full as she needed to keep them busy and playing games with them.
We made some food parcels for the KINOS kids again, Liezl and myself went to buy the food for the parcels, boy that was fun and funny as Liezl was sitting on the trolley and I was pushing it we had a few close calls on nearly hitting the rows and rows of food.we also made parcels for the needy in TembisaThank you MAD UK.
The Pretoria north meeting is really good and is growing, won’t be surprised if we have a baptism in the next few months. Did a exhort there about “letting your light shine” and we also had a share and prayer circle were we heard a lot about the brothers and sisters and how all of them really are. One of the brother just kept on giving thanks to God for helping him get his family from the Congo to Pretoria.
I just want to thank WCF for giving me another year to do community work. And some good news Liezl and myself are getting married in May.
