Things have been going well in Swaziland under the care of Pastor Enock. He has launched three new CLC campuses throughout Swaziland and is busy training up leaders and lecturers in distant areas so that this important work may spread even further.
Apart from the leaders attending CLC as students, all the people we are busy training in
Swaziland are either young adult orphans who are not in work, or are subsistence farmers
and extremely lowly paid individuals. This work is very fruitful; not only in building strong
Christians but many of the ones who have graduated have been able to find work or
promotion by presenting their CLC certificates and diplomas.
While they are doing well, needless to say, there is a financial need relating to Pastor
Enock’s travelling costs, car repairs, printing of student notes, etc. etc.
On top of all his CLC work, Pastor Enock is ministering to and feeding a group of bright
children who are sleeping rough during the week and he is desperate to provide
shelter for them. This group of children have to travel far from home for schooling and
can only get home (up the mountain) at weekends.
He is continuing to feed the orphans and the elderly.
Feeding the Children
In addition, his new church plant is having to meet outdoors - again for lack of shelter.
Although we have managed to secure a small piece of land for him on which he intends
to build a home, we would love to help him acquire a larger plot of land so that he can
construct a multi-purpose building which will provide shelter for the school children, his
new church and his CLC activities. Feeding the Homeless
This past month God has moved in a most extraordinary way in Uganda. We have
been working closely with Terry Charlton (Mission Africa) and two weeks ago, CLC
was launched in Toggo International Children's Centre. Of the 1,200 children being
educated, 152 of the older ones have started the CLC course. Their immediate need is
funding for the student notes.
We have calculated that to provide a year's notes for all 152 students (lever arch files
with dividers, ink and paper for the notes, travelling costs for lecturers, etc.), it will cost

In addition, we have received enquiries from two pastors (apostles really) - each of whom
run large crusades and have planted and/or oversee multiple churches (200 and 90
respectively) and want to utilise CLC material to train their leaders. They too will be looking
Finally, Richard, one of Terry’s dear co-workers (who is the main lecturer at CLC Toggo) has
a wonderful prison ministry, through which he enjoys the privilege of seeing many hundreds
of prisoners (and wardens) come to Christ each year. He too needs financial assistance.
There is great financial need and although I know a number of you support other ministries, if you feel able to help, you could send a payment to Steppin' Out Ministries, Barclays Bank, account number 90089648; sort code 20-45-05 reference CLC. If you want to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know how you want your donation utilised, that would be great. Otherwise, we will prioritise on your behalf.
Alternatively, as there are clearly ongoing needs, maybe you would consider arranging a monthly standing order with your bank, as per the attached notification.
We don’t normally ask for financial help and if you feel that this is an imposition, please pray for us.
HOWEVER, the biggest need is your prayers. Please lift up these various ministries and together we will witness what God will do.

CLC is providing material (free of charge) for the training and equipping of students in many parts of the world. In addition, through Steppin' Out Ministries we are working alongside ethical leaders in many poor, underprivileged areas of Africa providing food, shelter, transport, etc. (see newsletters).
Your financial help therefore would be very much appreciated.
Of course your prayers are treasured more than anything else.
