New satellite ecclesia in Tembisa

Last Sunday was a wonderfully exciting day. It was the first meeting of our new satellite ecclesia in Tembisa. Several people that we have met in the course of the last two years have expressed a desire to attend a meeting if it was in Tembisa as transport remains a problem for many to make there way to the Kempton Park meeting.
It was very pleasing to have six of our most regular Bible students to the Tuesday night Bible Class turn up for the meeting. All together we were 12 people and after the meeting we had another hour of serious discussions. Three of the six students that attended are preparing for baptism. It is particularly rewarding that these students are all young men who have very responsible and spiritual heads on their shoulders and have made a decision to commit their lives to God and Jesus.
The term “satellite ecclesia” refers to an ecclesia that is well supported by a nearby ecclesia in terms of studies given and exhortations on Sundays. It is more about establishing a presence and a venue for interested people at first even if there are not enough brethren and sisters to establish an official ecclesia from the very beginning
We thank our heavenly Father for the abilities and opportunities he has given us to preach the Gospel and to now move closer to the next step of having an official and mature congregation in Tembisa that will serve as a true light stand.
