Hey everyone, this is David… first time guest-bogger (does it still count as guest blogging if your name is in the blog’s url?).
I wanted to let everyone know what’s happening here in Katutura with 3measures. We’re still busy laying the foundations; lots to be done. I’ve been spending my days in the office every day working on relationships, setting up the website (check it out… www.3measur.es), getting to know our sister ministries, doing survey work, writing lots of emails, doing paperwork for our Namibian bank account, etc. Oh, and getting everything together for our new support system. We have all new options for donations/monthly support (interested? Check that out too… support).
Outside of “office hours” we’re getting involved in Hope Club, a sister ministry’s program for young adults in the neighborhood. This group is great and is filled with 20 & 30-somethings who are trying to live out their faith in a difficult place. We’ll be helping out for awhile to serve a worthy ministry & to build relationships for future discipleship groups. I would really like to get a group going with the men of Hope Club as soon as they’re ready.
We’ll also be starting a discipleship group with some of the older kids from Community Hope School; specifically, with the kids who responded to the Discipleship class I taught over the last couple of years. This includes Steven and Angelika who we baptized in December last year.
As we begin discipleship groups, we’re laying the foundations for our church planting ministry.
We’re also busy working toward our goals for community development. I’ve been working on compiling a list of churches that exist in the area & we’ll be contacting them soon to see how we may be able to work with them in community development. We’re hoping to offer Community Health groups to churches who are interested. This would go a long way toward starting our Community Health Evangelism (CHE) program in Katutura.
So that’s what we’ve been up to at 3measures. Thanks for reading & for everything you do.
Keep all this in your prayers!
