Praise the LORD for $22,000 ALREADY pledged for the purchase of the currently rented and sorely needed one-acre church property!! We thank our God profoundly for our dear friends from Trinity Baptist Church of Big Spring, Texas, for pledging $20,000 towards the purchase of that property! We, Independent Fundamental Baptist Church of Libreville, have pledged to give $2,000.
The building we rent, plus the house next door, belong to the same owner. It is a one-acre piece of property. The owner informed us that the price of the two buildings is $64,000. It is an old house that has five rooms. The house next door has three rooms. Next year, we could use one room for the teen class, one room for Junior Church, one room for the nursery, the biggest room for the main service, and one room for new members. This will best serve our ministry-expansion plan. By the grace of God, we plan to start a Christian school soon. We now have $42,000 to raise in order to purchase that property for God’s work.
35-SEAT SOUL-WINNING BUS
Praise the LORD for giving us a good group of people who weekly knock on doors, distribute Gospel tracts, and prayerfully seek for opportunities to share the Gospel. Our vision is to knock on doors, distribute Gospel tracts, and prayerfully seek for opportunities to share the Gospel and get people saved all over Gabon. The current heavy rainfall has not separated our soul-winning team from soul winning. We want to invest the most in soul winning and discipleship. We believe the bus would be a great blessing to take the Gospel further and reach more people for Christ.
New buses are very expensive in Gabon. In order to give you an idea of what they cost here, the Toyota company here in Gabon said that a brand-new, 35-seat bus would cost $113,000. However, we learned that a decent used one would cost half that price.
God used one of our Bible institute students to lead an entire family to the Lord using the soul-winning plan she had learned. Some came to church. Others were unable to come for lack of transportation.
During one of our home Bible studies, we were able to invite and give a clear Gospel presentation to Aboubakar, a young Muslim. He was grateful for the invitation and the Gospel message. Please pray for his continued coming and salvation. Aboubakar has a strong Islamic background.
It is a GREAT joy and privilege to partner with all of you to reach the lost with the Gospel and train converts for the Gospel ministry! Thank you for your prayers and support! You are CONSTANTLY in our prayers! May you have a great and wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas season!
That all everywhere may hear,
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15: 58)
