Ben On The Go!

Aug 1, 2012

It feels like the dust is refusing to settle. We have a lot going on while Bro. Ben finds his feet. Here are some items worth noting:

1. Bro Ben is settling in well (from my view). This is very evident in the fact that he has not waited the customary one month before he visits the villages to preach and teach. Last week he was out in Phalombe to console a family of one of the old preachers in the area (Bro. Kamoto) who was killed following a family disagreement. This visit, with Bro. Rodrick leading the team, was very comforting to the family and brethren there. Last Sunday he was in Thyolo where they have a Village Bible Study. They enjoyed having him. This weekend he is in another area some 30 miles west of Namikango. He is obviously in very high demand!

2. The second semester at NBS is now underway with Bro. Ben speaking at the opening function here at the Mission. The Bible studies out in the Village Study Centres got underway a week earlier. There are 13 Centres having these studies.

3. Preparations for the 50th Anniversary celebrations are underway. We have had a lot of publicity about this and word continues to spread across the land. Final budgets will be presented soon. We are looking at a cost of about $13,000. Some of this will be recouped from those attending. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime event and will mean a lot to the stability of our work here. Your contributions for this special even are needed and would be appreciated.

4. Brethren in the district south of us (Chikwawa) have organized a 3-day Gospel meeting for the end of July. Four of our teachers at NBS have been placed on the teaching/preaching schedules. It is definitely a good cause for Christ and I would like to request that we assist them toward the costs with some $300 if we can. And, yes Bro. Sidney, I promise..... lots of good photos to come your way!

Thanks for now, Bisani
