I pray that this report will find you in good health and at peace with God’s love and grace, in Jesus name, amen.
By the grace of God we managed to hold our Passover services as scheduled. We started Friday 09:30 to 12:50, lunch 13:00 to 14:30. From 15:00 to 16:30 youth lessons and discussions. The subject: “How can a young man keep his life pure?” taken from Psalm 119:9-16. We continued with this the following day, same time schedule. Young people appreciated the lessons. Some indicated that such services are imperative. They would appreciate it if they can be part of our program every time we have such services.
Friday evening services resumed at 18:00 to 21:30. We registered 17 new converts. On Saturday we repeated the same program. We prayed for a lady who manifested as the service was going on. The demons in her were very stubborn, but eventually they were defeated in Jesus’ name.
Also on Saturday, through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, a few people brought in occult materials to be burnt as a sign of their new life in Christ.
Sunday, we had one session from 10:00 to 13:00. Thereafter it was lunch, after which the meeting was closed.
I would like to share a few testimonies:
First: A gentleman reported some heat in his legs down to his feet for more than 3 years. After prayer he could not feel it anymore. He was prayed for on Friday evening and on Saturday evening he gave his testimony to the glory of God.
Second: A lady requested us to go with her to her place to hold a prayer meeting. According to her, there were movements on the roof at night with noise. Dogs barked all night as if they saw something. This caused fear everywhere according to her. We sang to the glory of God and prayed. That was the end of the witchcraft siege. She gave testimony that now her home is a place of peace and rest.
Last: A 49 year-old gentleman reported having no affection for ladies. We spent time with him, counselling him. We prayed together with him on Friday and Saturday after lunch. The next Wednesday he phoned to inform me that “now I have affection for ladies”. To God be the glory, amen.
Yours in Christ,
I pray that this brief and yet profound email will find you in good health and strong in the love and grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
As you know God opened a door for us to preach on radio (VOC) every Sunday from 15:00 to 15:30pm. People tune in to our program, they call and send text messages informing us about how the program is helping them. A couple from Mafucula called and invited us to come in their village for a seven-day tent campaign. We prayed about it and we felt a release in our spirit to go. We held the campaign from the 20th of May up until the 26 May. By the way, the couple who invited us are born again Christians, worshiping at the Free Evangelical Church (Mr and Mrs Khumalo). They were responsible for the logistics, e.g. accommodation, a place to pitch the tent, arrangements with the Chief, etc.
Since an announcement was made by radio, people were waiting for us. Yes, it is a small village. Services started every evening at 18:00 until 20:30pm. From 16:00 to 17:00pm we held a Sunday school service. We visited schools for morning devotion on Wednesday and Thursday. We managed to visit four schools. 63 learners gave their lives to Christ. 21 people were saved during the tent campaign. We had two Sunday school teachers, one evangelist, myself and two song leaders and a keyboard player. We also visited the market place at Vuvulane where we conducted open air preaching, singing, praying and counselling. There 7 people got saved. We visited a clinic and a male nurse got saved.
The Chief has four wives. One of the wives got saved together with the first-born son of the Chief, who is 23 years old. All four wives faithfully attended the meetings. We pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in their hearts for the glory of God. Our prayers are with them, including the Chief and his right-hand men.
Second: During a service, God touched a man in his late 70s who was healed instantly. According to him he had not been able to pass urine for the previous six days. To the glory of God, he felt a warmth below his waist and before he knew it, the urine was out.
Third: A small baby of 11 months was coughing non-stop. They brought her forward for prayer. God touched her and she was healed. The last day, we saw the mother and she told us that her baby was breathing normally and was no longer coughing.
The people who were saved during this meeting will be baptized in water shortly. We are still working on logistics. God bless you all as you continue praying for the work of God both in Swaziland and South Africa and the Southern part of Africa to the glory of God the Father, in Jesus Christ’ name, amen.
Yours in Christ,
