Greetings brethren, greetings in the precious name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

It has been quite a while since we’ve released a newsletter one of the reasons being that I decided to produce quarterly publications, where I sum up what has been going on under KwaZulu mission.

First and foremost, we’d like to thank the prayer and support from you brethren. Knowing that we have a family of brothers and sisters in the Lord around the world who pray with us, encourages us, and truly rejoice in hope while trusting Jesus Christ our savior with our faith until He comes.

“ 9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,serve the Lord.

12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Romans 12:9-12 ESV

The fellowship has been having some challenges lately, pertaining to how we hold our meetings and how the word is delivered. Not to mention any names, but some members of the fellowship feel that God has spoken through His Holy Spirit to them saying the following:

⁃ The way scripture is read should be changed or, how the message from our Sunday meetings, is delivered should be changed, where not an entire passage of scripture is read and deliberated on but rather, the person giving the message should focus on one or a few verses then share what God has said to them about that verse.

⁃ That we should stand (everybody) during worship

⁃ That we should all pray at the same time rather than praying in turns.

Most concerning, is how these issues have been raised. Two brethren from our fellowship feel strongly about these points but what has concerned other brethren is how the matter is presented during the service and the manner thereof. I’ll give an example of a recent event; where Phumlani (after worship, testimonies and prayer had been done) brethren suddenly stopped him and would say something like “this is not how the lord wants you to minister.” From this point then a dispute then arose where scripture was referred to with reasons for referral. End of it all, how this happens has caused much distress on the fellowship and is a challenge that we also ask brethren for prayer with. Judging the situation, it seems that the 2 believers presenting this, seem to have much of a hyper charismatic influence. We most certainly want to do Gods will and want to hear when God speaks but also have to discern if it is the voice of God speaking.

Now, not only do we think that the fellowship is being tested but The Lord has also been testing our lives individually. Normally during our Sunday meeting, we have a time dedicated to testimonies, and through this thus noticed how some of us have been having challenges in our families, our marriages, with jobs and children as well. But through it all, we are aware that God wants to do a work in our lives and all we know is that “this too shall pass” and are thankful that God doesn’t give us more than we can bear. His word is there to carry us through and to know that we face what we face means The Lord is at work and trusting Him we will conquer.

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”

Phumlani is still working at Johnny and Kim’s farm and we thank The Lord for this provision. We pray for Johnny and Kim.

Mama Ntombela is still going strong in her faith despite all challenges. But may we put her in our prayers as it seems like her husband is starting to realize that this following and constant sacrificing to ancestors never ends but is always complicating and how there’s never a solution is pointless. May we pray for his conviction and salvation.

Lindhurst Baptist Church:

This is a church from Johannesburg who’s youth team are planning on visiting us and we are quite excited. We pray that The Lord makes a way for them to come visit, as this will be good for our fellowship as well.

Thanks you for reading this newsletter and we are patiently waiting to see what the Lord has prepared for our fellowship. God bless.☺🙏

“19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.“

Ephesians 6:19-21
