|Pastor Jeff, Robbin & I at Howick Falls,PMG|
I am now serving with
Pastor Jeff & Robbin Demarest.
Some of you have asked if I have moved.
No, our church is in Hillcrest,
which is only a 5 minute drive from my house.
We minister to people in Hillcrest and the surrounding areas.
|Village Bible Baptist Church, Hillcrest South Africa.|
I love our church!
It is just a taste of what Heaven will be like
with so many people from all over the world.
Our church is made up of:
South Africans (Afrikaans, English,...),
people from the UK,
others from Tanzania & Congo,
We have a wonderful group of faithful attenders.
Everyone seems hungry & tender to the Word of God.
|My first Sunday Service at VBBC.|
As you can see,
I am playing piano for services.
It has been a very humbling experience.
I like to do the very best at everything,
but piano playing is not one of my talents.
On my very first Sunday,
Pastor Jeff asked me to share my testimony with the church people.
That evening, We also viewed my missionary presentation.
It was a great blessing to share with them
what the Lord has done in my life
and how He has led me here to work in the ministry.
|Vanessa & I with out SS & Junior church kids.|
On Sunday mornings,
Vanessa, her husband (Peter) & I tag-team-teach the children.
|Peter D. teaching the older SS class|
|Vanessa teaching the younger SS class|
|Me teaching Junior Church|
Since these photos were taken,
the class has outgrown our room.
We now meet in a larger classroom.
Please pray for us as we teach these children the Word of God.
It is sometimes difficult to know how much they have really understood.
The Zulu children understand alot of English,
but there is still a bit of a language barrier.
I try to shorten this barrier with my limited knowledge of Zulu.
Hopefully, as time goes by they will understand more
and I will be able to say more in their language.
There are many more ministries I am a part of in this new work, but for now I will just leave you with a few pictures of our church people.

Please pray for each of us at Village Bible Baptist

Pray for us as we grow and serve the Lord together.
