Glencoe Baptist.
Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us. 
We are well. Not sure when the vaccine roll out for us will commence. The Gov is speaking about a possible third wave. 
We are busy making hay while the sun shines for now. We have 3 groups meeting in the study centers as we train leaders. 
We are very mindful of your prayers for us. 
We were awakened by the smell of fire early hours of saterday morning.
Our neighbour house was on fire. thugs broke into the house and then set it on fire. two rooms of that house was gutted. 
Our house and lives were spared. 
 last night on that same road where the house was set on fire , which is at the back of our house. persons who use a field on that street to hide and do crime set that field on fire. 
I am preaching on Sunday in a farming town. I have to use two different languages while I preach due to the congregation with different languages spoken .
Thank you for your prayers for us. 
Thank you for including our ministry with your missions giving in April.

Glencoe Baptist
 I would ask for Prayer. 
We were due to commence a New Training class  11 March. 
On that day we had a major  electricity power cut and outage in that Town. 
It happened just before  the class starting  time. 
We had to cancel the class due to safety concerns for some students. 
We plan to commence thursday 16 March. We having same Power cuts l issues this week. 
Todate we on course to meet as a class. 
This uncertainty has an effect on the students attendance. 
Saturday 20 March. 
Teaching a  workshop on Basic discipleship.  Its aimed at helping lay leaders nurture new believers. 
This is also a testing of  the waters to find potential new students.
 The Town  we having the workshop in is a High Crime Area. 
Pray for good new exposure to Church leaders. 
Pray for the work of the Word of the Lord in those attending the workshop.
I am doing a 10 Min presentation in a church Sunday 21 March  with the view to test the waters for a  new class . 
There has not been much interest  or response to the Flyers given to the Church. 
Pray for the presentation to be effective and a tool to rouse and stirr leaders to consider that Bible  & theological training is an essential . 
Thank you.
