There is great rejoicing in Heaven over one sinner that repents, and today there is also great rejoicing in our house! Our two youngest children, Micah and Zachery, became burdened about going to Heaven and asked Angela during school time about it. Well, school time was immediately stopped, and soul-winning time began. After a while they both happily received Christ. Amen!
These months we have been very busy at the radio reorganizing staff—hiring some and firing others. We hired Brother Sadock, a man from Brother James Pridgeon’s college in Uganda. He is a Rwandan who wanted to come back to his country to preach the Gospel to his people. We are thrilled at his zeal and dedication to God.
He is preaching on the radio and making sure that the message coming over the airwaves is pure and clear. He is especially checking the Kinyarwanda music to make sure it is doctrinally sound. I am thrilled to see that he is keeping our standard for good music, as I saw him reprimand a technician for bringing in unapproved “Christian” music.
June was a difficult month here. So many church members came down with a bad flu and were sick for 2-3 weeks. I also caught “it” and could not preach for 3 Sundays. I was weak during this time, but I was still able, though, to do some research on the internet. We have big 200Ah sealed batteries at the studio that were not working any more. Thankfully, I learned how to pop them open, refill them with distilled water, and check each cell for specific gravity. Praise the Lord! The battery backup time went from 2 minutes to 1 hour after adding water. All the batteries were completely dry!
Please continue to pray for our new simulcast tower 90.2 FM. We are broadcasting, but the government rejected our request to build a real tower. I am continuing to pursue this and will continue asking. Please pray that they change their answer and let us build. Also, we now know the devastating effects of a “brown out.” Our air conditioning units for the studio overheated and died because of the low voltage. We need $1100 to replace them and to get a regulator so it does not happen again.
Thank you again for your regular prayers and support. In the last two months, we saw 18 saved and 108, that we know of, saved through the radio.
In His service,
Gregg, Angela, Caleb, Hannah, Timothy, Virginia, Micah, and Zachery Schoof
