Dear Friends of our Lord Jesus
In mid-September 2013 we were truly blessed to have 4 new brothers and sisters commit their lives to the Lord Jesus by being baptised into his saving Name.
On Sunday morning we had about 50 brothers and sisters and children assemble beach-side to witness the baptisms. The sea was somewhat on the rough side, but nothing was able to deter our friends from their desire to pass through the troubled waters and emerge as Abraham’s seed and heirs of the promises.
On our return to the ecclesial hall we extended the right hand of fellowship to Robert & Marta, Ali & Mehrnaz, and rejoiced in fellowship together as we remembered our Lord Jesus who loves us and gave himself for us.
Visitors from abroad for the weekend were Bro Tim Galbraith from India, bro Mario and sis Diane Spina from Perth who gave great encouragement to us all. Bro Tim also gave us some very encouraging studies and an exhortation during the weekend.
On Sunday evening everybody was invited to the home of bro Karl & sis Rahat for a service of thanksgiving and praise. Thanks and praise to YHWH for all his merciful kindness and also special thanks given by the newly baptised for all the help, support and encouragement to those who helped build their faith and prepare for their New Life in Christ. Gifts of appreciation were given as tokens by which to remember this wonderful day. May God bless and keep them and bring them safely into His glorious Kingdom.
“For of this I am confident, that He who has begun a good work within you will go on to perfect it in preparation for the day of Jesus Christ.” Phil 1:6 (Weymouth Translation)
With love in our Lord Jesus Christ,
Bro Rob Oosthuizen
