We were blessed to have bro. Wilfred here with us for a month in Port Elizabeth.
During the month, we had many activities running from the hall, one of those were the Lunch and Learn. What is the Lunch and Learn? … well let me explain. At lunch, you come to learn. Members from the Port Elizabeth Ecclesia would come to the hall on their lunch breaks and listen to Bro. Wilfred give some Biblical classes. The Sisters brought the best lunches. But before you could eat anything, you first had to learn something from the Bible. Bro. Wilfred made us look at Bible study in a new way.
During the week, we looked at several of the parables that Jesus taught: the Ethiopian Eunuch, Healing the Paralytic, the Good Samaritan and the Fig tree. There were some times we had a laugh at the skits done by Brothers and Sisters; at other times, we were thinking really hard. Hendri was often asked to lay on a table so that Bro. Wilfred could bring across his point better.
Most of the ecclesial members were attending; there were lots of eating and lots of teaching. We started each day with an opening hymn and prayer, then Bro. Wilfred gave his class, we then closed with a hymn and closing prayer. The Sisters put a lot of effort into the food we ate.
We were truly blessed with Bro. Wilfred’s visit here in Port Elizabeth; we hope to be better Bible students now with the knowledge we got from him.
Your Brother and Sister,
