Living On Mission: South Africa 2018 Learn More

Hey Friends,

If you know us, you know we live to serve others! John and I will be co-leading a mission trip to the area of Nelspruit, South Africa with The Cove Church.  
We will have the opportunity to visit the villages of our sponsored children and their families, deliver small gifts and letters from their sponsors, build a local education center for 2 of our villages, celebrate and open the water wells that our church has sponsored, conduct vision screenings and distribute eye glasses for those in need, as well as hosting leadership development sessions with Pastor Alton and his team and other community members at our Highpoint Campus there in Mpumalanga.

Your support in Prayer and Giving is needed and very appreciated.

Please pray for a great team of leaders to jump in and join us on this mission, for our eyes to be open to His will and to see what we are meant to see, safety and for financial provisions.

Today we hosted our final team meeting to prepare for our mission. We have an amazing team of leaders and it is so very obvious that this is why we needed to wait. He went before us and prepared Jennifer, John, Eden, Ashley, Linda, Brandon and Ronette to join our team.
Our meetings are a bit silly and full of details, but mainly focused on preparing us mentally and spiritually to expect nothing and everything all at the same time. One of our tasks was to read Live to Make a Difference by Max Lucado. It is a short, but powerful read.
I would encourage you to download this very inexpensive $1.00 book and take 30 minutes to read it. I promise it is worth it!

Thank you for joining me in living to make a difference!

With Love,

Our team of 11 has just 8 days before take off! Keep praying! We have some amazing leadership and hygiene sessions planned. The time in the villages with the families that are supported will be amazing and I am sure more impactful for us than those we are visiting. Pastor Alton's family recently experienced a very tragic loss of their unborn baby (32 weeks) and mom is in ICU. Please pray for healing and comfort for their family.

Thank you to all that have supported us financially and in prayer! Our trip from 2017 was postponed and has now been rescheduled for April 2018!!! 

Believe that your prayers are powerful! As disappointed as we were to not be able to go on mission last October, it was all a God Thing! It became clear that God protected our team and provided for something greater! 
This April, we will get to see our water wells come to fruition. We get to teach on health, finances and spiritual development. I am so excited to see what God has planned!
