Add Daily to Their Number
The Lord continues to ‘add daily to their number’ as another 21 new believers were recently baptised, close to the town of Quelimane. The fruits of this work belong entirely to the efforts of the indigenous church, which we planted just four years ago, with three women converts and now with a growing membership of 122 believers. The church has just purchased ground to build a meeting place where there are no other existing churches.
Eugene and Tina would describe themselves as “gradual” Christians. The Lord took more than 25 years to move them from “dead religion” to being full-on, full-time missionaries. By that time, both their daughters, Chantelle and Tanya were married and serving the Lord in their own lives. Their call was dramatic and clear. The Lord used His Word, (especially Isaiah 58, “Feed the hungry,…clothe the naked,…pour out your lives in a sun-scorched land”…) followed by prophetic individuals speaking in confirmation that left them without doubt. Their testimony includes suffering bodily harm for His sake. Eugene and Tina returned to the field after surgery to continue preaching the Gospel. They are currently involved in a new church-plant and discipleship of believers.
