Good afternoon Bishop!
Thank God we have been able to open the church where it was previously impossible: Sudan, a Muslim country where only 5% of the population speaks English and the majority speak Arabic and lother ocal dialects.
The Church was opened on Sunday the 11th of November by pastor Dyu and his wife (from Mozambique) and Pastor Richard, who was working in Uganda but has Sudanese citizenship.
12 Sudanese people attended the service, a pleasant surprise for the pastors, since the country is 100% Muslim. We are going to break through here!
Monday we had 11 new people. Pastor Dyu told us that people are responding to the Gospel and the Church with joy.
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. Matthew 4.16
Here are some photos of the Church, the first Muslims to surrender their lives to Jesus, the pastors and the document that authorizes the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God to work in the country.
God bless you,
Bishop João Leite
