The Bruingtons Missionary Report: August 2007

God has been so good to us in this place. We are all well. We are happy to be here.
We have almost completed our house, only a few details remain. The other half of the duplex is now ready for the other American family. All that remains is to build kitchen cabinets and closets in the bedrooms. We are anxious for our neighbors to arrive.

Each morning I have been having a bible study here at the house for any who want to come. We average twelve to twenty people. This week we baptized two more people. From this bible study we have baptized fourteen. Four of the men from this study are planning to go to another area about one hour away, that is if I am the driver, to plant a new church. One of the mens family lives there and asked if they would come and teach. I will take the men on Monday to stay all week teaching. I will return on Friday and stay the night teaching all day Friday and Saturday. We will let you know the outcome?

Monday: We will begin bible studies at Mbulungu this week.

Tuesday: At Mutnada we baptized one of the ladies from Staceys class.

Wednesday: At Mushingashi we continue teaching these twelve newly baptized believers about the church. We had an all day seminar to train the men. Eight men from the church attended, we invited men from the church at Kambazhi (six), and the church at Kayonge (four), and from my morning bible study (six), and all total we were twenty-four. We taught all day about the New Testament Church. Some of the men went out house to house to set up individual bible studies. From these studies we baptized two more into the body of Christ at Mushingashi . . . they are now . . . fourteen. Praise God!

Thursday: At Kambazhi the church continues to grow in number, from the twelve, we baptized another ten individuals over the last month . . . Praise God!
Last Sunday at worship there were sixty-two in attendance. We continue teaching and preaching. The people have been very receptive to the Word. Each week we teach the church and we send out men to begin house to house bible studies.

Friday: Is our family day. Lane is building as the people say, a house in the tree.
We go swimming with the kids at the creek, this is where we go to baptize.
Last Sunday at worship, True wanted to partake of the Lords Supper, Stacey said, not until your baptized, a few seconds later True replied, Wanna, (he calls Savannah, Wanna) baptized me, so I can! It seems while swimming True was baptized by Wanna. It is good to know as the children watch the baptisms they are learning. I asked True, how were you baptized, he said, in the father the son and holy spirit. I thank God for this positive beginning for the future decisions of our children . . . one day.

Raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord
Pray for us all,
Bart
