Our preaching and outreach activities here in Kempton Park really received a huge boost when Sister Beth Lansing and Sister Deb Leah visited us for a very fruitful 16 days in August. Both sisters Beth and Deb’s teaching experience was utilized to great effect and their contributions to the Kempton Park and Tembisa ecclesia’s Sunday Schools had a wonderful impact. Sister Beth also led the sister’s class in Kempton Park that was well attended by sisters from 4 different ecclesias. The Congolese brethren and students also enjoyed sharing fellowship with them.
The way they threw themselves at all the outreach work we had lined up was an exhortation to us all. The 16 days flew by as we were busy with food parcel distribution, the SNUGGLES project, the CUDDLES project, collating education material, teaching the kids that attended the Home Work Club and collection a huge donation (literally a truck load full!) of toiletries. The sister were also involved n a full days work of upgrading a pre-school. The Youth program they provided for the young people in Tembisa was also thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.
We are ever so thankful that they both decided to come to South Africa even though it meant time sacrificed away from their families.
Your brother and sister by grace
Lucas and Leona
