Launch of Renovo, a new cell ministry in Huambo

Hi to all our prayer partners around the world!

I’d like to briefly update you on ministry progress here in Huambo. We have been preparing for several months for a cell-based church plant to reach the educated urban classes of our city, many of whom have some Christian background and/or spiritual thirst, but who for a variety of reasons have turned their back on church. The vision of this cell ministry – Renovo as it is now called – is to create a multiplying network of home-based worship groups that focus on Scripture, transparent lives, mutual care, and a mission to bless the world.

Apparently this vision is attractive! Yesterday we soft launched the ministry with a group of 27 people (14 adults and 13 kids) in the home of our good friends Domingos and Emília.  Many of these people have not attended a church group of any kind in some time.  The atmosphere was warm and inviting and full of excitement for what might lie ahead.  Engagement with Scripture and with each other was open and heartfelt.  Our text for the day was from John 7:37 – “All who are thirsty, come…” And they are coming.  Next week, even more may come.

Please join us in prayer.  Give God thanks and praise for the work He has been doing in each of these 27 lives to bring us to this point.  Also join us in petitioning God to let this current group cohere well, to bring new people who need Christ, and to enable new groups to start.  Most of all, pray that God will draw people to Christ and that they will have the courage to dedicate all to Him in baptism, faith, and repentance, to the glory of the Father!
