Tongogara Refugee Camp Ecclesia
First of all, I thank Almighty God for giving me this opportunity to send this news. Secondly, I thank the CAT for the great work it has been doing for so long. We have received English and French NEV Bibles, but we still need Swahili Bibles as new members join our ecclesia. We also received copies of ‘The Real Devil’ and ‘The Real Christ’ plus discs – but we have no electricity in the camp.
In the refugee camp we started with three brothers and one sister, and now have nineteen baptized members and still growing.
We thank CBM for what they have done to support the building of our new meeting hall. We are very happy to announce that we have baptised three new sisters: Emerance Mulumba, Jacqueline Asende and Maombi Ali.
We also have a good number of students who have decided to follow our beliefs. Many come from Pentecostal churches who believe that when somebody dies they go straight to heaven, they also believe the devil (Satan) has supernatural powers to deceive the world.
“Therefore go into the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). God wants all people to be saved through believing in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.
The effort that CAT put into trying to make sure the gospel reaches every corner of the world is very great, and gives us strength and courage to continue speaking to many people from many different beliefs and languages in Tongogare Refugee Camp.
Last year we had Sis Ruth and Bro Steve Moore at our ecclesia and we had a goodly number of 85 listening to the preaching. The day was awesome and many people have started making a decision to follow what the Bible actually teaches, not what man teaches. We believe that many will come to our ecclesia to learn more and accept the true gospel.
