So sorry that it has been so long since we have written. We are doing well. We pray that the Lord will keep you safe as the whole world is going through this pandemic.
We had one week left to finish our fourth semester of the Bible college when a total lockdown was imposed in our country. Immediately, we had to send the students home. Now the lockdown has been lifted, with some restrictions, but we still can not reopen the Bible college. All schools and colleges are closed. We can not reopen Bible college this year. When other schools and colleges open then we will also be able to start our new semester.
We can’t gather together for Sunday Service yet. We are having online services. Praise the Lord for technology! Online service is a blessing. Many non-Christian friends are able to join with us for our Sunday services and are hearing the Gospel! We pray that these non-Christian friends will believe in Jesus and call upon His name and be saved.
We have been going through some hard times in life. Persecution broke out in the North where our son was. Our son was taken to the police station and flogged (beaten) by the police. He was charged with converting people (to Christianity) with foreign aid. He was continually harassed by the police, but no Christian stood with him. Finally, we had to take him out from there. Now he is with us. Our local co-workers there have been harassed by political people, anti-Christian groups and police. Now, the Lord heard our prayers and the situation is better.
The people (who were harassing our friends in the North) have some photos of us and our local workers with our American friends and with Christian literature. They have gotten these from Facebook. Please do not post any photos of you with any of us. We need your prayers.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
Co-workers in Christ,
Pastor 15’s Family*
