Beloved,

Tomorrow concludes the first of three weeks of confinement for us as a nation. I know that this has been challenging for us on varying levels, but I pray that we have all gained a clearer understanding as to the why of it all. This is a season of much sacrifice for all of us, but sacrifice is an honourable thing when it is done for the greater good.


This period of confinement coincides with lent; lent is the forty days leading to resurrection Sunday (Easter) during which we consecrate ourselves to prayer, fasting, and renewal.  

I would like to once again encourage us all to get into an even deeper time of prayer and spending time in God’s word. We serve a God who speaks, so let us be open and available to hearing from Him. A quote I find rich of meaning is this; “The world has nothing to say and yet says it very well, whilst the church has something to say and yet do not know how to say it.” Our world is desperate for uplifting, life-changing words from God, and who better than the church of Jesus Christ to share this with the world. A major way we hear from God and discern His will in each season is through prayer.

There are many benefits of prayer that can be listed but I would like to encourage you with the 3 below:

  1. Prayer helps us deal with personal issues more effectively.
  2. Prayer allows us to put things in their proper perspective.
  3. Prayer provides us with the necessary power to do what we need to do while trusting God to do what only He can do. 

Let us connect at six on Wednesday 01 April 2020, via live-stream for a short word of edification as well as a time of corporate prayer. I would like to remind and encourage you that you are all covered in prayer by myself and the leadership team. We also have a group of dedicated people, under Pastor Beatrice’s leadership, as well as our intercessors under the leadership of brother Edmond, praying daily for you all.  

I look forward to the day when we will all meet together again, until then, remain in His peace.

Love you all and God bless

Bishop Tshalo

Take a minute to listen to the word of encouragement from Bishop Tshalo. Our current situation shall not change who you are.


 

 

Beloved,
 
From his prison cell our brother Paul wrote the following words: “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13


I’ve observed that the most difficult thing during difficult days is to keep the right attitude. Therefore, my exhortation to our entire community is for each one of you my beloved to focus your attention on the One who supplies endless capacity as well as creativity.  


I’d ask you to use this time of national confinement in the same manner our brother Paul did; commit yourself to prayer, the reading and study of the Word, but moreover to journaling. Our president and the entire government need our genuine and dedicated prayers as the grapple with the issue of COVID-19 pandemic. We all know that it’s not just about a disease containment and eradication. There are several short, medium, and long term ramifications. 


I also encourage all of us to reach out to one another in other to see if we might need to supply some of our plenty so that these twenty one days of lockdown, commencing on Thursday midnight, will not lead to the starvation of our beloved.  


I’d recommend, via technology, we keep in touch on a regular basis. Go to our website. Raise issues of community interest. Post prayer requests. Keep us in the loop. Support our church through your continuous financial contributions.  


Finally, I’d like to reassure you that we will still be around to congregate and celebrate when the dust settles down. 
 
With love my beloved. 
Bishop Tshalo
