It is of immeasurable value for believers to know that our God is sovereign. In times like these when the world is poised on the brink of war and there is so much uncertainty, we should take courage and comfort from God’s sovereign control. We need to actively trust in Him and His Word.
In Daniel 2, God revealed a mystery to a pagan king and in His infinite wisdom, He gave the interpretation of that dream to Daniel, a young Jewish man who had been exiled to Babylon.
As you read the rest of our update, consider God’s sovereignty in light of our ministry here in South Africa, as well as your own ministry. Kingdoms come and go but our God is still the King of kings and all glory goes to Him.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!
The two boys are staying in the Phiri home with their brother who is happy to have his siblings with him at Bethesda. The boys are adjusting but it seems as if they are struggling a bit more since they are younger. One of the boys is now in Grade R (Kindergarten) and the youngest will start Gr R next year.
We are praying that someday all the kids will come to know and understand the Gospel and their perfect heavenly Father. We also hope that eventually they can be reunited with their biological family.
CLASSROOM PROJECT – COMPLETED!
Joining the local church guys were Jack, one of our houseparents and Shane, one of our Bethesda graduates. We are praising the Lord for the labour of love from these guys and the work that He has used them to accomplish!
In an effort to help motivate our Bethesda children to improve their academics and excel, our child care staff proposed a contest last year. The young man on the left achieved the highest overall academic average over everyone so he has earned the “Bethesda Brainiac” award for 2021. Congratulations L!
