“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's” (Psalm 103:2-5).
What a privilege that we may know the Lord God, the One Who is described in the verses above! And furthermore a privilege to work towards the spreading of the Light of the Gospel so that more people may know Him.
May the Lord bless you as support us through your prayers.
“Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’”
The new year has started. At the time of writing the first month is already drawing to a close. We don’t know what the year will bring, but we trust the Lord that it will be a year of many opportunities for the Gospel! May the Lord help us here at Mukhanyo that many church leaders will be equipped and trained for ministry and that our labours will contribute to the extension of His Kingdom in Southern Africa!
Thank you very much for praying together with us.
“For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights.” (2 Samuel 22:32-34)
December! The last month of the year – a year that was very different. What can we say? Many suffered hardships, losses and pain, but for the believer there is the comfort: God is our rock and our strong refuge and He guides us. He brought us safe thus far and will lead us safely Home! Here at Mukhanyo the academic year is drawing to an end. Our hearts are filled with gratitude towards the Lord and we gladly share the following points with you for prayer and praise!
Thank you for standing with us through your prayers during 2020 and hopefully again in 2021!
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,… The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
(Psalm 46:1-2, 7)
Slowly but surely the world is opening up again after Covid-19 and the lock down that was applied in many places. Some things are returning “back to normal”. Other things are flowing into the mould of a “new normal” and will remain that way. There are also many people whose lives have changed permanently – either through the loss of a loved one or due to the economic crisis that is a result of the pandemic. But even though circumstances have changed, we may trust in the LORD of hosts Who is still with His children.
Please thank and trust the Lord together with us for the following:
Thank you for standing with us in this ministry through your prayers!
“Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side…” (Exodus 17:11-12)
Our supporters and intercessors are like Aaron and Hur that held Moses’ arms up during the war against the Amalek. Thank you so much that you are strengthening our arms in the battle through your interest, love, prayers and gifts. That is indeed a great blessing to us! We gladly share some items with you for prayer and praise.
“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (Psalm 18:2).
While the Covid-19 storm is raging, we thank the Lord that we may know Him and that He is our rock and our fortress. We are also very grateful that we are able to continue with the ministry that He has given to us. Although we had to “change gears” a few times during the past few months, we are grateful that we are almost functioning normally. We gladly share some items with you for prayer and praise.
“‘For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10)
Suppose it is many years ago since the world and the Body of Christ as whole had to deal with so much uncertainty as what we have been experiencing lately and still are experiencing. But amidst of it all, the Lord promises that His love will not depart from His children and His covenant of peace with them will not be removed. Many things may change and be uncertain, but He remains the same – He, the God of heaven and earth!
Thank you for your continued partnership with Mukhanyo through your interest, support and intercession.
“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town…’ yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that’.”
When…? Why…? How…? These words are currently used more often than before as we all entered a period of “unknown uncertainty”. Many plans were cancelled or drastically adjusted. Not to talk about lives that were lost unexpectedly. This uncertainty is all over the globe and there are different responses. However, we as Christians may know that God is still on the Throne amidst all this and we are only reminded in a new way that we actually always have to say: “If the Lord wills, we will…”
Thank you for your continued support in prayer. May you also experience God’s blessing, peace and provision in this challenging period of histor
“Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry.” (Psalm 146:5-7)
These are wonderful and comforting words in a time of great uncertainty, fear, worry and despair. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God who made heaven and earth and never failed anybody. May the Lord help us all to keep our eyes on Him and put our trust in Him and not on a “son of man”.
Thank you for your continued support in prayer. May you also experience God’s blessing, peace and provision in this challenging period of history.
And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves;
but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, ‘Save us, Lord; we are perishing.’ And he said to them, ‘Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?’ Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.”
While the world is in turmoil and many hearts are filled with fear and panic about the disease that is spreading across the globe, we are privileged to know and fully believe that the God of heaven and earth is in control. In fact, the Lord Jesus who asked the disciples during the storm on the sea why they were afraid and encouraged them to have faith, is the same yesterday, today and forever. We can still trust Him and rest in Him during these difficult times.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea…” (Psalm 46:1-2)
