An update from Waldo and Anika and their church plant in Paarl

It’s been some weeks since Waldo and Anika Kruger embarked on their adventure to Paarl to plant a church. We thought we would get an update from them as to how they have settled in and how things are going.

Waldo, Anika, Janno and Lize are all safely in Paarl and getting settled into their new home and town. They have a beautiful view of the mountains from their garden. Let’s keep them in our prayers!

Janno, their eldest son, started at a new nursery school last week and is enjoying it, making new friends quickly. On his first day at his new school, Janno was showing a bit of anxiety about all the changes. Waldo prayed for him that he would be brave and have a “lion heart”. Then, surprisingly, the name of his class is the “Lion Class!” Janno was so happy about this, telling his parents how God answered their prayer, and that has given him so much confidence in all the new changes. It’s wonderful how God works in the little things as well as the big things!

Their business is now in full swing and they’re renting office and desk space with lots of other entrepreneurs, which is really great as they are meeting people who are interested in the fact they’ve come to plant a church.

They’ve just launched a Wednesday prayer meeting, and the couple who sold them their house decided to join them for that meeting last week, which was great. This Sunday, Waldo is preaching at Destiny Church (led by Winton and Ingrid van der Merwe) who are in our NCMI partnerships.

Waldo, Anika, Janno and Lize are all safely in Paarl and getting settled into their new home and town. They have a beautiful view of the mountains from their garden. Let’s keep them in our prayers!

Prayer points

Here are a few things they would like us to pray for.

1. That they will make fantastic, God-ordained contacts in their town – contacts like Paul made in his ministry trips.
2. That God would continue to give them vision and strategy for this church plant.
3. That they would meet like-minded people
4. That they would minister to the local people in a relevant way – people that truly make up the town of Paarl and surrounds.
5. Business is slow. Anika and Waldo are sharing the load, but they need more clients.

Please continue to keep them in prayer and contact them with prophetic words, encouragement, etc!

Here’s a video of Waldo and Anika recently posted on the NCMI Facebook page.

Eldership Couples at Cornerstone Church Throughout its History (for Prayer)

This last Wednesday (23 May, 2012) at our prayer meeting, Mark Meeske felt led to have us both celebrate and pray for the couples that have been on eldership at Cornerstone and have moved to plant a church, moved into Apostolic ministry, or moved with the possibility of a future church plant, and so on.

Here’s a list that was put together by Barry Farr that highlights these couples. Note that this list only highlights couples that have been on eldership (either at Cornerstone or supported by Cornerstone) and doesn’t include deacons and others that have gone on church plants or planted churches.

It would be great to keep this list and regularly pray for these couples that are conducting ministry in other areas of the world and have relationships and friendships with us. If you’d like, you can download the list (click here) and print it or keep it stored on your computer.
