Fireproofing the EAST

The East Region of the Johannesburg Church of Christ recently enjoyed an exciting marriage enrichment weekend, presented by Ivor and Anna- Marie Botha. 

The Friday evening started with members and friends and family watching the  movie Fireproof.  This was followed by a time of fellowship and sharing and it became clear that we all desired transformed marriages, judging by the time most people left.

13 baptisms and restorations in the first 8 weeks

The North West Region of the Johannesburg church have been enjoying a fast start to the year. There is a tangible excitement as every week new souls are added into the congregation. It is evident to so many that God is moving in amazing ways, answering many prayers and blessing the church like never before.

 13 people have made Jesus 'Lord' in just the first 8 weeks of the year. More are busy counting the cost to be baptised this week. What is equally exciting is that most of these conversions have come from the 'traditionally slower' ministries. Eight of the thirteen conversion have been married couples! Who says you have to slow down when you get older...

Joy: a reflection on 2008

By Araujo Francisco

“Be joyful always” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

 

Joy is a powerful emotion and God commands us to always be in this emotional state. It may feel impossible when we look at the realities of our lives, but God always tells us how to maintain this joyful state.

 

2008 A Walk to Remember

 

Durban, South Africa:   By Duncan Comrie

 

 

 

The year has truly been a walk to remember. God has given us some amazing victories despite some tough dark times. As we look back over the year we see His footprints that show us that he has and is always with us. He has allowed us to mature and grow.

Cape Town church celebrates a great year

350 Disciples have 912 at church

 

Last weekend the Northwest Region of the Johannesburg Church of Christ had a Bring Your Neighbour day entitled "Soul food". The hall was decorated with International flags from all around the world and each bible talk chose a country to represent. Food was showcased from from each country and sold after church. 

The church service was amazing, literally hundreds of new people came to church and many agreed to study the bible. The atmosphere was electric and there was a clear feeling of "only God!" Only God could give 350 disciples 912 in attendance. Only God could bring so many people from so many different backgrounds together and create an atmosphere of love, excitement and acceptance.
