I have been blessed and challenged this month as we hosted the last of our groups at least until December when camp starts! I am always encouraged when folks sacrifice their time and finances to travel over to see the work God is doing here in South Africa! May I labor for the Lord worthy of such sacrifices!
Currently, I am enjoying time with my mom! I am super excited that she took the opportunity to come visit us on the field! It has been 2 years and 3 months since we last saw her in person; Eli was still 2, and Neyland was only 3 months old! It has been amazing to watch him bond with his Nina so sweetly!
Church Property Update:
Last week, I had a man from Kevin Hall’s church, Pete, who is a surveyor, come and check out our potential property. He gave his “seal of approval” stating that we have sufficient space and good layout to build a church building on the property. As we continue moving forward, we are awaiting some legal steps the home owner must complete in order to purchase the property. I will be sure to keep you all updated as we are on this side!
Lastly, if you recall from last month’s prayer letter, we made a special request about the Bond Family and their need for a vehicle for their family. Praise the Lord, an anonymous donor sent $1,000 that was designated to help meet that need! We are eternally grateful and know that God will bless and multiply those funds with souls for the Lord Jesus Christ! There is still a need for additional funds, so if you would like to give toward this need; please send you gift to:
