November we put on a 3-day conference with a special
speaker coming in to celebrate our church's anniversary and God's
faithfulness. This year pastor Anthony Turner from
Colorado Springs came and blessed us greatly. Our topic was EXPERIENCE
THE TRUE FATHER, and many lives were touched not just by
the words but by the reflection of our heavenly Father so visible
in pastor Anthony. One of the highlights was one of the widows we
support as well as her friend giving their lives to the
details of what happened during the conference in my blog here -

Sunday we celebrated our anniversary with a big celebration,
baptizing four people, our kids singing and playing instruments,
and doing a dance choreography, and all being broadcast
live on Christian radio. We finished the day with a banquet
consisting of fresh mutton and sodas. It was a great day.

Monday and Wednesday we went to our villages to minister to our
churches there. We had a great time worshiping and praising God,
listening to His Word, and seeing many people healed physically.
