OCTOBER 2020

Dear Friends,

In 2 Thessalonians 3:1 Paul askes the believers to " pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured, just as it was with you. " In this verse Paul remembers how the gospel came to this church as recorded in Acts 17 and described in 1 Thessalonians 2 : 13 that the Thessalonians received the word of God, which they heard from Paul and others and " accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in everyone who believes " . This has been our prayer as we minister among the Zionist church leader and teach the truth of the Word of God.

As we approach the end of the year, we seem to be ending it the way we started travelling again . Over the past month Andy met with the ZEFA Executive at Sunbury (up the north coast two hours from home) then a week at South Coast Bible School (an hour south from home) then we spent a weekend in the Drakensberg (three hours drive inland).

There was no annual ZEFA Conference this year when about 250 Zionist church leaders would gather at Sunbury and sleep as many as possible in a room and the meeting hall would be full. This is not allowed under the current COVID-19 lockdown regulations; however, Andy was able to have a very effective meeting with his ZEFA Executive over that weekend while Heather stayed with Casi for the weekend. It was very strange as they had to meet around a few tables in order to keep " social distance " and wear masks when chatting to one another. The following Monday we travelled to South Coast Bible School to meet with the Diploma students. This time they separated the bigger group the Certificate students from the Diploma students. Pray for those graduating in 2021 as some still need to write a number of exams during November to qualify. Andy volunteered to invigilate for two students so they could write in the Durban area instead of travelling another two hours south. On the Friday we went home to pack again to spend the weekend away at a timeshare resort in the Berg with long-time friends, Andre and Christine Ludik. it was great time of relaxing and reconnecting..

During this month Heather has been helping as a volunteer at the Port Shepstone Hidden Treasure Shop every Thursday. This is a ministry of the Baptist Union s Women s department where they have fourteen shops all over South Africa and the money that is raised is given to the Women s Department and also to various charities and causes in their respective areas.

Andy is prayerfully considering mentoring a group of ZEBS graduates who want to study further for a Degree in Theology. Please pray for the planned meeting on 28 th November at Sunbury with those interested. He will use the Mukhanyo Higher Certificate (previously diploma) to help those who cannot enter the degree programme and will do the bachelor’s in theology degree through Baptist Theological College.

FAMILY NEWS : Praise God that Kirsten can move into her new home and so we plan to travel again to Pretoria in the beginning of November to help her with the move. It has been a stressful time for them with all the delays and uncertainties caused by the Lockdown regulations. Andrea, Quintin and the boys were able to spend a few days on holiday at our home and we spent that time in their home taking care of their " zoo " – dogs, tortoise and turtle. We were glad that Casi was able to spend her days off with us

Thank you once again for your faithful prayers and loving support.

Blessings,

Andy & Heather Sullivan
