Greetings Fellow Servants,
As you might know, Cy Stafford has been undergoing treatments for aggressive leukemia. His situation became very serious, very quickly. At one point he actually coded, and was resuscitated. The doctors gave him a 10% chance of surviving, and serious end-of-life decisions were being discussed by those close to him. However, prayer-warriors all around the globe began crowding the throne of God with fasting and prayer. Our mighty and gracious God heard those prayers and Cy has shown startling progress. His white cell counts have risen, he's off of dialysis, and free from the ventilator. It has been so faith-affirming to follow his situation. As we say in Tanzania, Mungu ni mwema! (God is good!)
While we praise God for His good response to our prayers, we recognize that Cy still has a long way to go. Don't let up in your efforts to petition our heavenly Father to intervene for our beloved brother. Cy has a rich reward waiting for him later, but there is still so much good work for him to do here :-)
Now some news from the field:
Our brother, David Bayi, of the Kioga congregation reports: "This year we have two baptism,my daughter as non as Sarah obeyed the gospel,and also there is one guy his is Emanuel obeyed the gospel it was January 3 the last Sunday .
The attendance on Sunday was 107 including kids,the middle week the attendance are 35-38."
The Gaines family will conclude furlough and head back to Tanzania in less than two weeks. Please offer a prayer for their safe and smooth travel.
Until all have heard,
