Blessings and sadness

Today we welcomed four new members and said goodbye to two faithful men. One was introduced as leaving the country at the end of our business meeting. Separate picture.

Shinto, the man with me is going back to Australia to remarry his wife and begin being a father to his10 year old daughter. After he got saved and we began discipline him I discovered he was divorced and had a daughter. I shared with him how to witness to his wife and she got saved. I told him he must go back and lead his home. Therefore, he’s moving this week.

The other young man did our special music today. If my wife got the video, I will share it. Best guitar picker I know... and I learned today he can sing too

The new members are a newly married couple from Tanzania. The other couple is from South Africa but moved here from Europe.
