Opening Service at Glory Power Center in Block D

opening_blockd_crowdThe Glory Power Center in the village of Block D in South Africa had their official opening service last Sunday in their recently completed building. Some 350 people packed into the center. The service was also the start of a three day youth conference in the center. Part of the crowd is pictured above before more came. opening_blockd_menschoirThere was wonderful worship, including a men’s choir, pictured. We are so thankful that many men who love the Lord attend the church.

Don had the privilege of preaching a sermon from America over the phone on, “What is the Purpose of the Church?” Don stated that the church is where people learn how to have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and that many in the crowd probably heard the gospel for the first time in this church. The church is also where Christ followers have fellowship with each other and are all part of the body of Christ, dependent on one another. Also, the church is there to help minister to the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the orphans and other poor in the community. Don announced that Glory Power will also be starting a farm at Block D like the one at the Glory Power Center in Magona. The farm will provide food and jobs for orphans and eventually make the church self-sufficient financially. Don was told afterwards that the people received the message enthusiastically.

There are many new Christ followers in the church who are so hungry to grow in their faith. Please pray for Pastor Krest, the associate pastor, Ronald and the other leaders of the church. Also, pray for the people from the center to be great disciples of Christ and a bright light in that desperate community. Thank You, Jesus.
