Two Churches, One Village

Molepolole is the largest village in Botswana, with a population of over 70,000 people
...and quite a mouthful to say, "Mow-lee-po-low-lee"
There are two Baptist churches in Molepolole. This is David & Selabe Thokwane. He pastors Calvary Baptist Church.
One of the believers at Calvary Baptist is a blind man, once he found such a warm welcome from the Thokwanes, he invited his other visually impaired friends. They are all very active at church together. In this picture they were singing for the church. Pray that the worship of these two churches would please God and glorify His name.
Molepolole Baptist Church is pastored by Sethuba Kalaeng, he is in the center of this picture. He and a church member were out evangelizing in their community and were joined by Pastor Jack Ranto, of Lobatse Baptist. Pray that these pastors will find their strength in the Lord and not grow weary of doing good, that their lives would point their communities to Christ.
Pray for the children of Molepolole, that they will hear and believe the Word of God, that they will make a decision to serve the Lord with their whole heart and not be lead astray by the world.
The ladies of Molepolole Baptist and Calvary Baptist came together to prepare this meal and fellowship together. Pray that they will stand united as the body of Christ, that their large village will see a difference in them and the way they live. Pray that many Tswana people will come to know Christ as their Savior through the witness of these two churches.
