I am leaving South Africa having enjoyed a fruitful and happy time again with the believers from Oslo Beach assembly in Port Shepstone. The meetings we had were well attended and there was a good interest in the ministry of the Word. It was good to catch up again with familiar friends and meet new people. It was a joy to speak to believers from Zulu, African, English and Indian backgrounds.
The need is as great in this area as it is in other places. The assemblies from the Zulu speaking areas are doing well but you might pray for Benedict who is an evangelist who is well used by the Lord but is experiencing problems with his eyes. I also had the opportunity of speaking at the conference in Durban and meeting believers that I knew from the Chatsworth assembly in Durban. The assemblies are working hard in Durban, which is very large and sprawling city.
The opportunities and need is great and the labourers are few in this area. There is a pressing need for a younger generation to step up and immerse themselves in scripture in order for God to raise up leaders among his people. If you pray for this area of South Africa then that would be a valuable matter to bring before the Lord.
The Emmaus work continues with Paul and Dorothy Grieve in connection with prisons in Durban. I have asked them to send information on this work to the blog.
