3 Friday Expansion of the Eldership: We are trusting the Lord to raise a more men
in our midst to join the Eldership. The Elders are in conversation with some brothers
in the church, with a view of incorporating them, so that we can be stronger for
church planting in the city.
4 Saturday (1) The sisters have the Ladies Breakfast this morning. We pray that
this time of fellowship would be for their encouragement and growth in Christ. (2)
We thank the Lord that AO met with 3 of the 6 Christians who had been arrested in
S0mal1land. He was encouraged by their strong faith and none of them denied
Christ despite the pressure. It is probably advisable they relocate because of
extremists. Pray that such Christians will stand firm.
