I just got the following email with two pictures and wanted you to see it:
We had 33 in attendance yesterday. Dr. Hamby preached, Lubabalo translated. I did all the in between stuff. It went pretty well. Sipho’s dad and mother came. That was a great for Sipho. We had several old ladies, the one older man, a few young men and women and some children. The thirty three is including all the white people that showed up. Corli, Clark and I, Dr. and Mrs. Hamby, and Corli’s mother and sister. So 26 Xhosa people were there. Lubabalo did much better with his message on giving this week. We worked on it alot. I gave him some things to study and then made him write out his entire message and preach it to me a couple of times and he shortened it to the length it needed to be.
No one got saved, no surrendering to missions but I think that we are growing together as a church team that will see God do great things soon! I really don’t care about the numbers but it is encouraging to see that people will actually come and that the guys are doing something to invite people.
