Joseph Ayoo Naftali is president of the Holy Baptist Independent Churches of Africa in Tanzania.
On Jan. 20–21 he attended the opening of two churches that this fellowship planted. The fellowship’s churches now total 10.
The two new churches are 400 kilometers (about 249 miles) from his village. He “thanks God for protection [on the] long journey” from his home in Shirati Rorya, the northern bush of Tanzania, to Mugumu Serengeti.
Both churches, he says, thank God for Regular Baptist International’s support of the Holy Baptist Independent Churches of Africa.
