This is just a short update to let you all know… We are in the single digit countdown for our departure for South Africa! Yesterday, I was honored to preach for a dear friend and influence in my life, Pastor Chad Gordon! Lighthouse Baptist Church was such an encouragement and blessing to our family yesterday! We are honored to be a part of their missionary family!
This week, we will be meeting with several friends and family for different get-togethers and saying some final goodbye’s for a while. (We probably should have started this last week so we could fit everyone in! 🙂 ) I’m so humbled by the love that so many display toward our family.
Deputation has been a wonderful growing area in my life personally and spiritually! God has used this time to teach me lessons that will certainly be needed in the days ahead. I hope to share some of these lessons within the next few updates.
I want to thank you all for your continued love, prayers, and support of our family!
Your Missionaries to South Africa,
Stephen, Ashlee, Peyton, Eli, and Neyland
