“Things Most Surely Believed”
I rejoice to tell you that the Lord has answered our prayers and has given us the opportunity to visit God’s people in Africa again!!! Hallelujah!!!
The theme of our trip will be Luke 1:1, “ Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us.” with a direct focus on the Articles of Faith. The power of the truth always unites the people of God, humbles the pride of man, and brings glory to God.
I cannot believe that it has been four years since I last visited the Dark Continent and walked among the people of “Mungu”. I ask you for your prayers and support as we labor to strengthen the churches and ministry in Kenya, Malawi, and Mozambique. We plan to strengthen them spiritually by preaching messages that pertain to the core doctrines that provide the basis for what we believe and practice. We also plan to buy many Bibles, hymnals, and biblical teachings that will bring stability to each individual believer and every congregation. It has been amazing to see how God has blessed the work to grow and prosper in spite of Covid 19, rapid inflation, and Putin’s War on Ukraine. God has been the true shepherd of these little flocks and I rejoice that several churches here in America are being used by Him to grow the vineyard of Christ. Just a few more months and I will be hearing the saints sing in Swahili again… We will wash feet together as brothers in grace… We will weep tears of joy as God revives us again! Some may say…”It’s too dangerous or risky or expensive but I ask, “ Is any sacrifice too great or any service too small?” May we be blessed together to obey the Great Commission and be willing to endure all things for the elect’s sake.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Elder Nathan Pitney
