We praise the Lord for the healing of Pastor Bonzi from the village of Peni.  I saw him for the first time yesterday.  He has a pronounced limp but is very positive with all that the Lord has done for him.  He was pretty much recuperating this past year.  The Lord Jesus sent a young school teacher to their church.  Pastor Abdias agreed to feed him a meal each day if the teacher would tutor him.  The arrangement worked well for both of them and Pastor Abdias passed his elementary school exam.  Being at home has allowed him much time to read and study and thus a whole new depth to his Christian walk and preaching.  Answered prayer in that all this has been a wonderful testimony in the village where all thought he had died in the accident.

    I also enjoy fellowship with my brothers & sisters at Church and all the activities that go along with that.

Andrew,

        Good to see our Lord Jesus working & healing all His servants these days. I will lift up pastor Bonzi in prayer that Christ will continue a good work in him. It's comforting to know that Jesus........ He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow isn't He?

     I keep you'all in my prayers, and especially for you & Esther, and your family.

        I'd love to drop you a personal e-mail , so maybe I can get that info. from my brother Jack?

I'm not sure if you have it listed on your Facebook profile or not?

 

     Give my Love to All......In Christ Jesus Love,

                                                                            Marty Herman

A second surgery was necessary for our pastor. He was taken to the neighboring country of Benin. He returned with huge praises as they were able to strengthen his broken leg so that there is not much difference in the length of his legs. But more importantly, he said, he shared a room with a young man who had a gun shot wound. Pastor Abdias was able to lead this young man to Christ and connect him back with his family, who are believers. A double answer to prayer, the surgery a huge succes but above and beyond, a lost one was found.
