God is Never Late!

Yohannes and Kidist Getaneh – Serving in Zambia

I was visiting a patient at one of our biggest hospitals in Zambia—The Zambian University Teaching Hospital. Pastor Phillip, who is Deaf, asked me to witness to his hearing son. While I was sharing the salvation message with him, the patient next to his bed, Isaac, was keenly listening to the entire presentation. As I led Phillip’s son in a prayer for salvation, I heard Isaac praying with us as he accepted Jesus Christ. He told me, thank you Pastor for coming. I was hoping someone would lead me to the Lord because I do not have much time left with my life. God is never late. God’s way of working is always amazing.

Please pray for Zambia as floods and heavy rain affect so many people. Even our church is not spared from the flood. Disaster authorities in Zambia are calling it a catastrophic situation. The floods and the cholera situation in Malawi is a threat to Zambia, especially the Eastern Province. I was so encouraged by the faithfulness of our members who came walking to every service drenched with rain.

Office News

We are making plans for our first Missionary Table Talk on February 21st at 9 a.m. This first Missionary Table Talk will be hosted by Faith Baptist Church in Jefferson City, Tennessee. Director Chris Luppino will moderate this first Table Talk. Chris serves as the Director of Missionary Care with Gospel Furthering Fellowship. These Table Talks are designed to be one-day, casual discussion for pastors, missionaries, and mission leaders. The goal is to help bridge the gap of misunderstanding between pastors and the real-life experience of missionaries. If you will be in the area, I cordially invite you.

Please let Brother Terry know if you are interested in attending.

PRAYER REQUEST: Please lift Joel and Lottie Desir up to the Lord at this time. They desperately need the Lord’s wisdom, strength, and protection. Thank you.

Headed Back to Zambia

A Furlough Ending

Please be in prayer for Justin and Danielle Sauder and family. They are headed back to Zambia for another term. Please pray for their safe travels and for them to resettle and re-acclimate quickly.

Justin recently wrote, “After being on the road for several months with four children and trying to homeschool, we are very much looking forward to returning to our home and our people. We have now purchased our tickets and will be departing the US on February 20, 2023! God has blessed in our travels, and our time in the States has been very productive. Churches have been so loving and kind to our family, and we have enjoyed visiting with the people that have been faithfully praying on our behalf and supporting us.”
