The only way to build love between two people or two groups of
people is to be so related to each other as to stand in need of each
other. The Christian community must serve. It must also be in a
position where it needs to be served…. ~Kenneth Bailey

Hi Eric, Leesa and the Saints at Colbert PC.
 
We trust that you are enjoying the summer break in your part of the world. We also pray that you hardworking folks are enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Hope you had a great ‘4th of July’ celebration.
 
As the winter ‘bites’ in our part of the world, we are grateful for the warm and comfortable homes we live in as we become mindful that there are so many in South Africa who are homeless or vulnerably house in squatter camps makeshift dwellings. As a church we continue to reach out through the soup kitchen. Its not much, but I know that it does make a difference in their lives.
 
We give thanks for the recent congregational meeting which elected Mrs Koleka Ntantiso as an additional elder on the Session. Koleka has been a dedicated chairperson of the Stewardship Board for many years. The congregation also agreed at that meeting to go ahead with our plans to build two houses on a piece of land we own in Southernwood . One of these units will hopefully be used as the manse for a new minister.
 
The General Assembly of our denomination will gather in Gauteng from the 7th to the 15th of July. Our sister Florence has been chosen as a commissioner to the Assembly. Plans for my retirement are continuing, and I shall also be travelling to the General Assembly in Gauteng together with Audrey to attend our Valedictory Service on Thursday 12 July, and be given leave to retire at the end of 2018.  We celebrate God’s goodness in allowing me to serve His church for almost 37 years. Please pray for our Probationer, Victor Letuka who will remain at St Andrews after my retirement next year.
 
We  also celebrate the warm friendship we have enjoyed with the people of Colbert Presbyterian church for  many years. May this partnership continue for many more years to come.
 
With warm Christian love,
 
 
Errol Theophilus
