Molweni! (“Hello” in the Xhosa language) We are pleased to inform you that we have really enjoyed learning the Xhosa language so far. On Tuesdays and Fridays we meet with a language helper named Viko. We have also enrolled in a Xhosa correspondence course which we will begin soon. Learning the Xhosa language will be one of our main responsibilities for the first two years.
It is difficult to fully describe how encouraging it was to attend the Zion Evangelical Bible School classes this past weekend at Soweto-Dube and Rustenburg. It is so exciting to be a part of this great opportunity. The combination of passionate Bible instructors and students who hunger and thirst for God’s word is something that is simply powerful to observe. The Bible school teaching in the Gauteng province is shared by the following four men: Tim Kuehl, Godfrey Maseko, Louis Wolfaardt and Graham Wood. After the classes this past Sunday, Godfrey Maseko expressed how there is nothing more rewarding than completing a day’s work of serving the Lord. Continue to keep all of the Zion Evangelical Bible Schools in your prayers. Your prayers are very much appreciated and certainly effective. To see pictures of the two schools and to hear a kind greeting from a ZEBS student, click on the video below. It is touching to hear how thankful they are for the Bible teaching and for your prayers.
