I have also benefited in fitness and knowledge so that I can stand for what is true in the sight of God”; “It is amazing to look back and see all that could fit into one day! When I was tired, weary and doubtful prior to an outreach, but entrusted and committed the work into God’s hand, realizing just obedience, He will do the work, I have found Him to be Faithful and all the doubts and fears vanished like mist before the Sun”; ‘The practical outreaches were the best training to give courage to go and talk to people, share the Gospel and give them literature to read”; “I now know that I can do all things through Christ (I never thought in my life that I could reach the top of the mountain)”; “I have learnt a lot of discipline and become much more fit. My mind has been cleansed, renewed and opened.
