 Greetings in the name of Christ,

 

                 I want to thank you for your partnership with us through the past year as the Lord has allowed us to serve Him over the past twenty years in evangelism and mission work. As we move into 2018 we value your continual friendship, fellowship and faith. Friendship to walk with us, fellowship to worship with us and your faith to work with us. 

                “We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God. For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.” 1 Thessalonians 1:2-5.   The apostle Paul gave thanks to God for He is the author of all good things that come to us or done by us. God is the object of our worship and praise. Our gratitude to God should be continuously upon our heart for the grace He bestows upon us. We should be thankful for the blessings we receive from others and for the blessings we can be to others. Thank you for your work of faith, labor of love and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God our Father.

 Malawi:  The children and staff at Rainbow are doing fine and everybody is in good health. The kids have a break from school and the academic year has just ended. The children have been preforming well academically and we continue to monitor and check them while in their prospective schools. We are encouraged with their results. We have three children, Ester, Macfallen and Mirriam who are expected to start college this month after passing their exams. As of now we are in the process of finding the best schools for their studies. As for secondary school students, there are nine children continuing with secondary school and they will also be going back to school this month. Bro. Martin has begun preparations for a tailoring training for our children in February.  They have two manual machines as of now and the promise of a local bank to donate two more in the near future. He discussed with the bank members that maintaining good clothes for children is very expensive and if they had their own machines it would be a double blessings. The kids would develop tailoring skills and will be making clothes at a lower cost than buying them.             
               The maize mill is now fully operational, but due to electrical power outages it is limited to operating for short periods of time. Malawi is experiencing the worst electricity power outages they have ever had. They are only receiving eight hours of electricity after every twenty-four hour period. At times they are experiencing two days without electricity due to shortages at the national level. The crops of the maize, soya beans, and beans have been completed. The rains began as the weeding and fertilizing was completed.     
                      
                The church construction at Mwewa Church has been completed. The pastor, Bro. Filimon Alinafe and the congregation are very happy for the completion of building. Bro. Martin continues to hold mid-week BUSH classes in three villages. On December 18th a new church was stared in one of the villages they were holding BUSH class. Nineteen people gave their lives to the Lord on the first Sunday service held at the church.  

 

 Our thanks is to God upon every rememberance of you  for your partnership

in prayer and to work with us in the ministry that God our Father has sent us to do.

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, if we ask
anything according to His will, He heareth us.
And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have
                                               the petitions that we desired of Him.” I John 5:14-15
 
TO GOD BE THE GLORY, FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE.
