Durban, South Africa

(DER-bun) – Missionaries David and Julie Yngsdal report that 30 men and women from various churches and parts of the city attended the first “Lead by the Word” training held at the Welcome Center in downtown Durban. Over the next weeks and months, they will be studying the various doctrines central to the Christian faith. “In a day when many false teachings are being spread about, it is important to train our leaders to go to God’s Word as they prepare to teach their people. Pray for these participants, many of whom are leaders in their churches; ask that they will take what they are learning back to their churches to help equip their own church members. ‘The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful people who will be able to teach others also’ (2 Timothy 2:2 NASB).”
