Dear Pastor and Church,
My prayer is that the goodness and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will continue to rest on all of you. We will want to extend our very sincere gratitude to all of you for the prayer and financial support you continue to give us for all these years so we can continue to reach our people for the Lord. Thank you so much for your love.
Brethren, the Lord is blessing His work here and we are very thankful. We continue to focus on strong doctrinal foundation for a God-honoring ministry. Our training of leaders in the Bible Institute is going strong. I am presently involved in three centers each week and I am enjoying it very much. Recently a young man called Joseph came to see me with a strong and sincere desire to have Bible training. He told me God asked him to come and see me for the training. I grasped at the opportunity and we have started. I did not ask him how God talked to him. He is not a Baptist. He is a Presbyterian presently attending a charismatic church due to his location. Please pray for him. He is married with two children.
As I mentioned in an earlier letter, one of our former students invited us to meet a group of people he has been meeting with for some time now. After visiting for three times we have baptized eleven of them to start a new mission. We pray the Lord multiplies them. We will continue to be visiting them. There is one of our present students called Richard; we are trying to reach his townsfolk. Please pray for him and us too.
The radio ministry is also going on well, and I am very glad with the feedback I get from people. Recently I was making a trip to Asesewa where Brother Abraham lives; we stopped at a village junction to talk to a young man. As I introduced myself, his face brightened up with a big smile. He said he and his father have been listening to me regularly for years and he was so glad we met. I am glad the Lord is using the radio to reach people. It is all because you have been supporting us. God bless you.
As you have read from Brother Abraham’s letter, we had our pre-Christmas fellowship at Asesewa and it was a really good meeting. I was at the New Testament Baptist Church from December 23 to 25 listening to some of my students preach. I was blessed with the soundness of their messages. Brethren, pray for us as we seek to bring up a generation of preachers who will do bigger and better for the Lord than we are doing.
My family will like to thank all of you for your extra generosity during the Christmas. We are doing just fine.
God bless you all.
Bro. Samuel and family.
