Namibia Newsletter: July

A new church beginning!  

We traveled 700 kilometers, and two hours on dirt roads, to reach this newly established church.  We baptized 11 people in Jesus' name this day. God is blessing Bro. Gert with help from his employer to build a church.  He has been given a pickup to transport people and metal roof sheets for a church building.

We will soon be taking cement and materials to this remote place so they can begin making the bricks to build the church.

Crippled man walks without his crutches!

God moved in a very powerful way during this outdoor service! After hearing the word of God, people came forward for healing. While we prayed for this weeping man, he pushed his crutches aside, and began to raise his hands and walk. We thank God for opening this door to a new preaching point in Witvlei, Namibia.

Church growth!

After the open air service we retired for the night on the church floor.  The next morning I was greeted with lots of little smiling faces ready for sunday school at 8:00 a.m.  At the end of the morning service Pastor Skrywer baptized 4 men in Jesus name!

We thank God for His blessing upon this church.

 Thank you for your prayers & financial support,
Missionary Keith & Elizabeth Ikerd
