Field Directors Peter and Debbie Thomas recently traveled to the southernmost tip of the African continent, Cape Town, to attend the Africa Council meeting. They experienced a wonderful prayer time,
interceding for the entire continent asking God for souls, committing the ministry of the Church of God into the mighty hands of God, and rededicating themselves to the Harvest of Africa.
A Leadership seminar for the French-speaking West African countries was held in Sikasso, Mali, with 59 delegates from eight countries participating. This seminar was intentionally planned for the Sahel Zone ministers. Some of the graduates from the Master Program taught sessions, along with Dr. Hong Yang, Jurgen Rudolph, and Peter Thomas. The next seminar will be held in February 2018.
Two large Church of God facilities were dedicated—one a big, beautiful church building in Goma and a sizable Ministry Center in Dakar, Senegal. The fourth floor of the Ministry Center is complete and is equipped with a seminar room, accommodations for delegates and an apartment for a teacher. The harvest of souls is tremendous in the Sahel Zone of Senegal. Sixty (60) youngsters are trained in a Christian environment to become good soccer players with the intent to present Jesus to them. Church of God Missionaries Everaldo and Lydia Nascimento are dedicated to fulfill their ministry among the young people.
New national overseers have been appointed in Botswana (Reuben Bajaki Kegomoditswe), Namibia (Bennie Smith), and Zimbabwe (Zafania Maushe). May the Lord empower these brothers with godly wisdom and passion for the Kingdom of God.
