Churches

1. Mangochi Malawi

Work on the Tower of Deliverance roof in Malawi has been completed.
The Watchman’s House, made up of three separate units, now completed. This has been enabled by SPT grants for the raw materials and free local labour from the church: Pastor Clement is remarkably gifted at construction and home improvements.

 

 

 The new toilets, which SPT contributed to, are also now complete. The toilets will also help to support local schools . Here we see Clement Chirembo and his assistant Patrick.

It was a joy to minister in Embangweni. They’re a very special congregation with a special pastor, Pastor Amon. He and Clement used to play soccer together for the Malawi national team. SPT Purchased land which they used to Build a church, the Church still requires a roof.

 3.Church in Ghana- Techimantia

Tithe project

One of SPT’s long-term projects has been supporting the building of a church for Pastor Sampson’s church in Techimantia, Ghana. This has proved a bigger project than any of us anticipated, and has necessitated years of patient perseverance, including the initiating of the Tithe Project Now joyfully the end is in sight: we hope to complete by the summer (2014).
Pastor Sampson is the co-ordinator of the prayer Guild in Ghana. He started his ministry with nothing about 10 years ago; but God has richly blessed him. He has planted at least 6 congregations in his area, including Kumasi (the 2nd city in Ghana).

Church Planting Ghana

SPT donated this piece of land for Pastor Samuel (left) to build a church on in Duayaw Nkwanta. Samuel hopes the building work will commence within the next 3 months. He already has a thriving small congregation meeting in a school classroom, which they have outgrown.

Pastor Bismarck has applied to SPT for help in building his church. As yet SPT does not have the necessary funds, about £2,000 is needed in the first place.

Pastor Bismarck’s wife, linda is expecting their 1st child. this is her roadside shop.

Pastor Alex (inside left) has been given this church in derma to plant a church in. Eventually, of course, the roff will need to be restored.

At the heart of SPT’s work in the Techimantia area is the guild prayer fellowship. here are some of its Members.

 

 A CHURCH IN KAKINADA, INDIA

Backgound

Daniel Akumarthi was a succesful and popular gospel singer, wherever he went people responded positively to his ministry in song. But something was missing for him: there was a yearning in his heart to have ongoing relationship with those, who responded to his gospel ministry in song. In short, he came to realise that he was being called to pastor a congregation, rather than being a christian super-star on a stage for a night before moving onto the next “performance”.

He sold his car to finance a year of preparatory training for the ministry in the USA, and started a congregation from scratch in a poor out-lying area on the edge of Kakinada, the main city of the East Godavari district in India. The locals there have already begun to respond well. A congregation of about 100 has begun to form, with a great deal of enthusiasm and youthful vitality. But they have no building.

At present they worship on the verandah of the home of one of the members of the congregation: all of them squeezing into the limited space available. At the back of the same house land has already been purchased  for the building of the church: indeed the perimeter wall has been constructed (almost a necessity in that culture to deter other claimants). The work is poised for the construction of the church building to begin. When it does, it will be filled at once with jubilant voices and thankful hearts.

THE HOME OF LOVE CHAPEL, Warangal District Telengana State, INDIA

The new Home of Love Chaple which SPT gave the first £1000.

Background

The Home of Love has a thriving orphanage and school, but they also have plans to build a Chapel on the side of the building. The school and orphanage are run on Christian principles. The need for a Chapel is for the school children, as well as for the orphanage boys to have personal counselling and somewhere quiet to reflect and say their prayers. Currently all meetings and one to one chats take place in the children’s sleeping quarter.

SPT donated The first £1,000. the work is now being completed.

 MARK IN NEPAL

September 2012

A visit to Nepal focused on the church community, Resurrection Eclesia, established less than 20 years ago, and led now by Pastor Bharat. Later, visits were made to Ghorka, for a day-long seminar with pastors many of whom had travelled four hours to attend, and to Gaokhar. In each place, the spirituality of the worship was moving and powerful, with a remarkable faith and expectation that the living Christ will heal, restore and set free a people from spiritual oppression and bondage. Once again, membership of the Guild expanded through the power and manifestation of the Holy Spirit.
