UJith this personal letter from the field lue bring you warm Christian greetings
and thanks for your support of our labors during the past month. In order

to save on postage and also make it easier for you to file your Income Tax return our forwarding agent is sending out all receipts at the end of each year* In the meantime our monthly personal letter is our way of saying
"Thank you" for your gift, and keeping you up-to-date on our work.

I had a very enjoyable and successful trip to the States during November and December, although my time was very limited and I was not able to see all of you in person. I am so very thankful to all who showed such kind

ness and hospitality to me, and shared in their concern and support for the work we are doing, I would say a special thanks to Bryce and Judy
Morgan who shared their home with me while I was in Indiana, and work so

hard and unselfishly as forwarding agents. Also to Randy and Cindy Seeley who loaned me their car for travelling, and helped with printing of Com mitment cards and preparation of the Display. I want also to express my
thanks in advance to Cindy and the ladies of the Eau Claire church who have

kindly offered to print and mall our Finance Report and Quarterly Newsletter.

Dear Brethren:

Thank you once again for your loyal support and prayers for us during this past month. You are to be commended for seeking first God's kingdom and
His righteousness in a day and age uhen so many are turning away.

In these days ue earnestly need your prayers. Please pray for our family, and pray for the work that the Lord has given us to do. Pray for the guidance of His spirit in our lives and in our labors. Ue are fighting for our very lives against Satan and his demons, and only God can give us the victory throuc
our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am so thankful to God for His love and mercy.

What a joy to know and ex

perience His forgiveness through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. UJhen our spirits are broken and ue come to Him in repentance He does not despise
our broken heart, but heals and restores and recreates a clean heart within us. Oh praise His blessed name for thisl This is the good news that we have
for the world today.

Last week I travelled by motorbike northwards to Ashton, about a 3 and a half hour journey through Stellenbosch, over the mountains at Du Toit's kloof, beyond Uorcester and the Hex River and on to the other side of Robertson.

There on the Prospect Farm,.! brought a message on T-HE vMTJ^.-ISTRY OF THE CHURCH,

had to switch to the reserve tank outside Grabouw and still travel 50 miles

over Sir Lowry's Pass to our home.

The Bible Seminary is now well into its third year classes, and I am now using the 'bike extensively in going to Sir Lowry's Pass on Tuesdays uith classes on LUKE, Last Ulednesday at Macassar I taught SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY, and this Thursc
at Elsies River our class was on the book of PHILIPPIANS. It is such a joy to

teach these brethren because they are so receptive, and always have questions
during our discussion time after the lesson.

Our family is enjoying the last days of summer in Cape Town. I have taken both Nancy and Timothy around the peninsula on the motorbike. This week-end
ue took a drive out to Stellenbosch, and went for walks through UJynberg and Claremont. Nancy's arm is still giving her occassional pain. Timothy has been uith me swimming at Fish Hoek, and to Moto-cross at Killarney. I am having personal Bible studies and talks with Tim as well as teaching him new hymns at his own request. I confess with deep regret that I have awoken very late to the prime importance of my ministry to my own family. I pray to God that
i t is not too late.

In the battle of the Israelites Aaron and Hur held up Moses' hands and thus the victory was won. I am only a man and I am a weak man but with your

prayers and your help a mighty victory is being and shall be won in my life,
in my home, and in the South African mission work.
Always rejoicing,

Beloved Brethren:

Every remembrance of you brings us joy and thanksgiving of heart. You have prayed for us. You have supported our work. In all of this you have en couraged us to continue our uork of teaching and preaching in the Cape Touin
area.

TuiD uieeks ago Timothy and I travelled by motorbike to Ashton, 125 miles north of Cape Toujn. I brought a message at the funeral of Brother Maase. He mas a
in chartered busses, uihen we face death it is good to know that we have a

brother of our minister at the Prospect Farm. Over 600 people had come from near and far. Many of them uere not able to get into the building. Some came and even makes death our servant. As I stood on a mound of dirt at the

Good Shepherd who is the Resurrection 8. Life, who takes the sting out of death, I spoke of the joy of knowing Jesus in person. It was also good to talk with
several of the brethren afterwards, and share afterwards at the farm in the washing of hands and eating of corn in the traditional Xhosa manner.
Our

Classes at the Seminary have now entered the 2nd term of the 3rd year,
subjects are:PRINCIPLES OF CHURCH AND SEMINARY ADMINISTRATION.

PASTORAL EPISTL^a:'.;^1jj8^-fcTIM0THY, TITUS, PHILEMON. '


PROMOTION ANDvPUBLiC .RELATIONS.

Timothy has been accompanying me..on some of my teaching and prebchlng'triTDB.


He has also been taking notes at the classes and bringing lessons to the

children. Unfortunately we had an accident with the motorbike last week. Lie praise God that He was with us, and we both landed on grass with little more
than the wind knocked out of us. The bike's front forks were bent and i t is

now being fixed.

Our Easter Services were held this year at Mfuleni. Themes for the 3 days were: [ilHAT CHRIST HAS DONE. UiHAT THIS MEANS TD US, AND WHAT UE MUST DO. My lesson on Friday evening was: "He has risen" and on Sunday morning, "Ue must share His suffering." Brother Ntobi had the services well orgardzed and the program typed.

South Africa is enjoying mild autumn weather, and our family has taken advantage of it by going for long walks both in the liJynberg area and down at the seaside.
The brethren at Macassar are now advanced to the point where they are holding

their own Sunday evening services, while Nancy and I have Communion at home.
Brother Lufele of Ujorcester has called and asked us to come and preach there, so Lord willing I will be going there next Lord's Day. Lie would ask your prayers for Brother Ntobi's new classes at Nyanga, for Brother bJilson at Elsies River who is having problems at home, for our new preachers, Brothers Guga, Jantjies and Desemela, for myself and my family. In all of our trials we rejoice that God is with us, and that we can trust Him to keep all of His promises. Lie pray that God will bless and guide you by His Spirit.
Yours in His wonderful love,

Dear Brethren:

What a joy it is to greet you again in the precious name of

Christ our Lord who cleanses us from all sin, and delivers us from every trial. Your prayers and support are appreciated so much.
Last month we received $1,481.62, but we need $1,650.00 a month be cause we are still paying back $500.00 per month on a loan for my recent furlough trip.

Timothy, now 10, accompanied me last month on the motorbike through Stellenbosch, over Du Toit's Kloof, beyond Worcester, across the Hex River, past Robertson to Ashton -- 125 miles north of Cape Town. Over 600 people had gathered for the funeral of one of our elders. The Africans appreciate straight talk; and I spoke to them of the certainty of death, the need for preparation, the peace of sins forgiven, and the joy of knowing Jesus. My own recent experience with the Lord enabled me to speak from the depths of my
heart. Afterwards Tim and I returned to the farm to share in the

washing of hands and eating of corn in the traditional tribal manner. The long trip back made us quite "saddle-sore" and we rested and
moaned quite a bit after getting home.

Since gas is $2 a gallon here we use the motorbike quite a lot. Unfortunately Tim and I had an accident last month, but God was with us and we landed on grass with just a few bumps. I am preparing an
outline of lessons on the Pastoral Epistles for Brother Ktobi to teach at Nyanga. Brother Fose is starting a new work at Paarl. Brother Matutu, elder at Guguletu, is a little jealous of the new ministers, and I am planning to talk to him on Sunday.
The work at Macassar is progressing with Brothers Desemela,

Jantjies and Guga now preaching, and several have been baptized re
cently at the Faure River.

Easter services were held this year at Mfuleni, going from Good Friday through to Sunday. Our themes were: WHAT CHRIST DID, WHAT THIS MEANS and WHAT WE MUST DO. I spoke Friday evening on "The Resurrec

tion" and Sunday morning on "Sharing His Suffering".


I have written to Brother Djakumene at Upington regarding his
ordination, and to Brother Leve at Port Elizabeth about a preaching trip to that area. Brother Lufele has phoned me to come and preach at Worcester and we are planning to do that as well.
We are now in the 2nd term of our 3rd year at the Cape Bible Seminary with classes on PASTORAL EPISTLES, CHURCH ADMINISTRATION and PUBLIC RELATIONS. Since A1 Zimmerman is now on furlough there is an extra burden on me, so we are going a little slower. At Guguletu 2

weeks ago I brought a lesson on I TIMOTHY, and last Lord's Day at Mfuleni X preached on Psalms 22-24. Timothy was also with me then.
Next term's classes are HEBREXJS, JAMES & JUDE AND 1 & II PETER.

Hail, snow and even frost have been part of the winter scene here, and coming

problems in my life and uJork

r thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart for your faithful prayers

I have particularly asked you to pray for me and my family. J have told 7" that ye are going through hard and difficult times. And noy it breaks my heart
to tell you that Nancy has left me.

The life of a missionary is perhaps one of the most demanding lives that there is. It is not for everyone. There are days, sometimes yeeka, and sometimes months, yhen you do not see your family. And even yhen you are home there are

Ayoman needs time; she needs attention; she needs a lot of love end affection. So does a family. And yhen they do not get it the foundations begin to crumble. Idhat do you say yhen your yife tells you that she yishes her skin yas black, so that you yould spend more time yith her? Or yhen she fills out a form at church requesting the minister to come and visit her one evening, and you are the min ister? Maybe you iaughj and maybe yhen you look back on it after your divorce,
you cry. "

One might be tempted at first to think that no good can come out of such a sit uation, but this is not the case. First, it has brought me closer to God, and
caused me to rethink my values in life.

and refining of faith. Prayer has become more meaningful, and the yard of God much more precious and personal. I have also been spending more time yith Timothy and drayn closer to him. My lessons and sermons are also much more personal, and
I have been spending even more time in the Lord's york.

Then it has also been a time of testing

Even betyeen Nancy and I there haa groun a ney kind of relationship, a ney
ayareness of each other's needs and trials, and a ney friendship.

The mission uork itself continues to groy. The ney church in Paarl is having a

Dedication Service this Lord's Day, and they have asked me to apeak.

Last Lord's

Day Tim and I travelled to Guguletu yhere I preached and also spoke to the men afteryarda. This past month Brother Koeberg and I made preaching trips to Sal-

danha Bay (100 miles north) and Graaff Reinet (LOO miles northeast of Cape Toyn). I am teaching yeekly at Guguletu, Macassar and Elsies River; have visited again at Sir Loyry's Pass, and spend Sunday evenings at Macassar yhere services have
been started in 3 ney homes. In addition I have prepared and printed lesBona on "REUELATIDN" for next term and have already translated these into the Afrikaans
language.

What does the future hold?

That I am prepared to leave in the hands of God.

firmly believe chat God still has a purpose for my life, and that He uho has

brought us this far shall continue to lead us.

Some may call me foolish, but I

have seen far too many evidences of God's pgyer and yisdom to doubt Him noy.

Dear Brethren:

R-R. 2, Box 291 A Chesterton, IN,


23 Nov. 1979 kS3Qk

Holj I praise and thank God for your prayers and your support, particularly

in these exceedingly trying and difficult days.

You have encouraged me

more than you shall ever knou in continuing in the faith and the work of
the Lord Jesus Christ here in Southern Africa.

Last Lord's Day at LUiANDLE near the StrartC.\,Hir^e baptized into Christ.
I brought a message at the river, and preached at the shanty-type building
on "THE MEANING OF BAPTISM." There were several there from Caledon where

a new group has been started, and we hope to visit them soon. The previous night they had had an all-night service. I wasn't there, but they said the
place was packed.

This past month we held a service at Mbekweni township near PAARL, meeting in a school room, and I brought a lesson on "REUELATIQN." Brother Fosfe is
ministering there, and the church continues to grow.

Brother David..MatutU (sponsored by Brother A1 Zimmerman) is planning to


/attend UinstdnSalem college next year. Since Brother Zimmerman is on furlough I have been helping David by taking him to the American Embassy, v the Bank and the Travel Agent. Brother David is a young man from Guguletu, ^end hopes to leave Cape. Town at the end of December

.^Dy^churches here ^j^e^^ir^upset by those who teach the Sabbath, question .//ministers, and seek to dominate the church by their own rules.
//the'veracity of the book"''or Jonah, reject the scriptural nrdination. of
that they may have wisdom and strength to stand firm in the faith.

Please pray

CAPE BIBLE SEMINARY classes on REVELATION continue on Tuesday evenings at


Guguletu, Uednesdays at Macassar, and Thursdays alternately at Matroosfontein, Tiervlei and Elsiea River. Last night at Elsies River I gave a survey of
the Bible Books and the book of Revelation.

The motorbike is still going well. It needed a 25 Rand(23Q) service the other

day, and also had a puncture in Guguletu which meant a bit of pushing; but -that la nnnd exerci5g I. as is the 5 mile jog I do each day after my office

work at Farmer's Co-op.

Our daughter Sandy is now at Minnesota Bible College,

while Tlmmy is just finishing his 5th grade at Aliwal Road School.

The first Sunday morning of this month I preached at both Guguletu and Mfuleni In the afternoan I visited some Christian friends in Phillipi, then rode to Macassar for a meal and preached at their evening service, 1 have also held some week-end meetings at Broadlans farm at the foot of Sir Lowry's Pass.

Plans for the future. Lord willing, include another trip to Graaff Reinet, an Easter Camp, and at the Bible Seminary a review of the previous 3 years classes with examinations, the issuing of certificates, and the ordination
of those men who are approved and recommended by the local elders.

At this time of the year our thoughts turn to the coming of Christ.

Let us

also remember that He is coming again.


at the day of His return.

May his blood cleanse us, and may

His Spirit mould us until we be found in His image without spot or blemish
Yours in His wonderful name.
