This month, we thought it would be a good idea to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Jilingesi to you. They are a wonderful example of how the Lord is working here among the amaZioni.
We first met Mr. Jilingesi last April. He regularly attended one of the This We Believe classes taught by Rev. Goosen, a fellow ZEMA missionary. Since then Mr. Jilingesi has participated in other This We Believe classes just to be refreshed! In fact, he and his wife both attended the most recent set of classes held in Mdantsane. Mr. Jilingesi is also a student at the Mdanstane Zion Evangelical Bible School, ZEBS.
We are glad to tell you that they have not only been attending the classes, but have been listening carefully and looking to make applications in their lives. For example, in response to the lesson on the great commission, they have organized a Bible study that meets on Wednesday evenings which they get to by foot. Along with this one, they are looking to organize another Bible study that will meet on some Saturdays. Mr. Jilingesi loves to speak about Matthew 28:19 where Jesus commanded his disciples to go and make disciples of all nations.
Just the other day I transported Mr. Jilingesi to his employer’s house where he works as a gardener. He needed my help to collect a bicycle that was being given to him. He is hoping to use the bicycle to better get around to the places he wishes to teach God’s word.
Pray for them as they grow in their knowledge and understanding of God’s word and for safety as they travel to share the gospel.
