Dean & Sheba Padayhag – November 2012

Johannesburg, South Africa

November 26, 2012

Dear Co-Laborers,

We are forever grateful for your partnership in reaching the lost and edifying the saints here in South Africa and neighboring countries. Your prayer and intercession are great encouragements to us. The Lord honors the prayers of the saints like you. May you continue to experience the joy in praying and interceding for us and our ministry. Sheba and Shedea left for Philippines on October 21. Sheba is now 8 months pregnant. The doctor scheduled her for caesarian operation on the 12th of December. We need your prayers for the whole procedure and also for the provision of the needed funds. We will be having another girl. Shedea is doing great and enjoys her study at grandma’s preparatory school. I’ll join Sheba and Shedea on December 2 after the national conference and Bible school graduation in South Africa. The ministry is going and growing. Though we will be on home assignment for 5 months, but everyone is in place to carry on the ministry. Thanks to our training program. On October 21, I resigned as a pastor of Grace Berean Church-Kempton Park and turned over the ministry to my deputy pastor, Kennedy Mandaza. He is also the chairman of the board of our national ministry and a principal of school by profession. Pastors Mdluli and Hlatswayo will be in-charge of Grace Berean Bible School in our absence. These ministers will partner with us to plant more churches when we come back next year.

For the sake of the call,

Dean Padayhag, South Africa
