November has already been an extremely busy month and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon! I plan to send a more detailed update of my trip to the Transkei Province very shortly, but I want to take this time to give you a brief update of our month and how you can better pray for us!
- November began with us attending our first Traditional Xhosa Wedding! Our friends; Bulelwa (now Milisa) and Xolisi were joined together in Holy Matrimony at Soweto Baptist Church! It was a great opportunity for Jeremy Hall to preach the gospel through the scope of biblical marriage!
- Last week, I was privileged to accompany Pastor Lubabalo to his home town of Mount Frere in the Transkei Province! I had the opportunity to preach to several men that live in the remote village just outside of the town. We traveled a long dirt road through the mountains that took us roughly an hour off the main road! It was really something to experience life the way I would imagine 100 years ago!
- Monday, Peyton, my oldest son, turned 8 years old! I cannot begin to express how proud of him I am. He is becoming a godly young man and full of personality! I pray that he will grow up to be used of God in a wonderful way!
- On November 28th, my Pastor, Tony Howeth will be coming over to visit and to preach the first missions conference at Soweto Baptist Church! I am excited to have him and see him again in just a short time! Please pray for traveling mercies and that his time here will be used to challenge our folks for the cause of world evangelism!
Our family is so thankful for you all that are so faithful to pray for us and to encourage us on a regular basis! We are eternally grateful for your love, prayers and support of our family!
