How to Fast

The fasting for the whole church started last Monday. As far as the sign up goes, 875 out of 970 fasting spots have been filled. Not a day has gone where nobody has signed in and most of the empty spots are for December which means that they will most likely be filled in the end. Some have signed up on multiple days while some have split one day of fasting amongst themselves for health reasons. I think it is safe to say that almost all of the congregation members are participating in this event. I am going print out and post it until the day when it ends. As I mentioned, if it is not your turn to fast, please pray two times a day in the morning and ...

I continued my position as a village leader even after I stopped serving as Mokja, but I let the position go as well last July. The new village leader wishes to serve his position well and attends early Morning Prayer every ...

We Will Begin With Prayers.

Just as I have mentioned during the past few sermons, I would like to start the new beginning of our church with prayers. First is the 97 days of relay fasting and prayer by the whole congregation, and second is the recruitment of 333 prayer members and service prayer members. The sign up for the relay fasting and prayer starts today and ends next Sunday. Place your name on the dates you would like to participate on the fasting schedule posted on the right side of the bulletin boxes. A maximum of 10 members can participate in one particular day, which means there are 970 lines available for sign-up. However, because I have filled out every Tuesday for ...
