The church of Hhelehhele was launched this past weekend. Pastor Mncedisi and Purity began services on Friday. In a torrential downpour, Friday night’s service brought in 10 people from the community. Four of which received Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! Another twelve people arrived by the time the service had ended. All who were in attendance walked quite far in the rain and mud to get to church! At the Saturday service, there were 60 in attendance with more salvations. The first Sunday morning service, 92 people came to hear about the saving grace of Christ. The altar call was for freedom and deliverance and it was a full altar where many were prayed for! God is up to something big and we are believing for great things. Pastor Mncedisi preached with such confidence and he and his beautiful wife Purity truly showed the love of Christ to their community. It was very obvious that relationships had already been built prior to the launching of this church!
You will remember we shared about Christmas parties at the Care Points back in December. At Hhelehhele’s Christmas party, the youth had an issue with a young man who brought a knife and was threatening other students. He apparently has been known for causing havoc and our leaders ended up having to ask him to leave the party. Praise God, this young man got saved at the Saturday evening church service! We are rejoicing for such an amazing start to all that God has planned for this community!
We are praying in a worship team, as well as many more lives to be changed!
