The work of evangelism and discipleship continues at WITS University and God continues to give us opportunities to share the Gospel and disciple students.
An update on Sibahle. Remember I mentioned that his father killed his mother and then killed himself. Well, Sibahle continues to faithfully come for our weekly Bible study. In fact, we have now advanced to Book 3 of our discipleship series and the group has grown to three students (photo – Sibahle is in the blue t-shirt)
Please continue to pray for Sibahle’s well-being. He shows such faith and joy and is eager to grow.
Unfortunately, the fourth member of the group, Ofentse, has had to discontinue his studies. He was studying mechanical engineering but sadly could not continue. He is very keen to go into full-time Christian service, but in the meantime, he is trying to get into a diploma programme at one of the colleges. I was privileged to lead Ofentse to the Lord two years ago. Please pray for him at this difficult time of transition. Please also pray for Dean (with the NY cap); he has a skin condition that is susceptible to the sun and heat. The other guy, Mandla, is a keen musician. I took him to a music recital recently. All four have gone out sharing their faith with me at least once.
The privilege of randomly speaking to students is that you often get to share the gospel with students who are struggling with different concerns and problems. I met a Nigerian post-graduate student named Ebenezer the other day. He said he prayed to receive Christ many years ago but was not walking with the Lord and felt that God couldn’t help him in his struggles. I tried to encourage him with my own experiences and prayed with him as well. Please pray for him.
Please pray for a number of students who eagerly pray to receive Christ, but then don’t turn up for follow-up. It’s sad that they are missing out on the blessings of Christ.

I mentioned in my last letter that we would be training students on how to share their faith and disciple others. Unfortunately, this did not take place. Not enough students were available on the day of training.
Your support and prayers are greatly appreciated.
