Dear Friends


Another year has sped by and we are one year closer to meeting our Saviour in the clouds. 

We would like to take this opportunity to challenge you to “walk in the Spirit” Gal 5:25 in 2011 and to bear the fruit of the Spirit so that others will be attracted to Jesus.

Kol 1:9-11 (Nuwe Vertaling) “...Ons vra God dat Hy deur al die wysheid en insig wat die Gees gee, julle Sy wil duidelik sal laat ken, sodat julle tot eer van die Here sal lewe deur net te doen wat Hy verlang.  Mag julle vrugte dra deur goeie werke en toeneem in die kennis van God.  Mag God deur Sy wonderbare krag julle alle sterkte gee om in alle omstandighede geduldig te volhard.”


Col 1:9-11 (KJV) “...desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might according to his glorius power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.”
