We are coming into our first full year in Fairfax, IA. This church started off in Cedar Rapids, IA in the ending of 2006 and has gone through some trials and tribulations to now being blessed to have a new home. The founder of CEPC Peter Shandakwa and the leader ship of this church plant have been in prayer throughout 2018 to see what the Lord has for this town. One thing that has been spoken clearly is there needs to be a partnership with local leaders, and ministries that want to intentionally work with CEPC to reach out to the people of Fairfax who have not heard the gospel yet. We are only at the guidance of Christ as we await for clear direction of how this will be accomplished.
2018 was also the first full year of the Shandakwa family being in the United States together. To the far left is Enock, to the right of him is Rebecca, In the founder of CEPC Peter Shandakwa, to the right of him is his wife Sarah, and to the far right is Tresor. They have been in the USA together after years of separation, because of immigration processing to get them in to the United States as Pastor Peter was in the USA knocking on doors for the union of the family which finally took place in August of 2017 after more than 10 years of waiting. Glory to God for their assembly and the love the testimony they carry of Gods power.
2019 is being declared as the year of Focusing on Gods truth and word. So this year we are praying for greater discipleship and mentor-ship of young people on fire for Christ to know what God has spoken into creation. Please pray with us in this vision and declaration. We continue to be appreciative of Open Bible and the people all over the globe who have seen the vision the Lord has laid over this ministry.
