It’s been a tremendous week here at Sand Mountain Bible Camp for our annual Vision Baptist Missions Orientation! I love having the opportunity to be challenged, encouraged, and to fellowship with my brothers in the battle for Christ!
I appreciate Pastor Austin Gardner (our President), and Brother Jeff Bush (our Director) sacrificing their time to teach us and give us the tools we need to be successful in ministry! Their investment in my life is one of the greatest assets I have in my spiritual tool kit, and I am grateful for them.
I wanted to give quick update also on our progress toward our departure date! Neyland is now two weeks old!! His social security card has arrived, but we are still waiting on his birth certificate in order to move forward in the visa process.
Here are the steps we are taking and ask that you pray with us about over the next several weeks:
- Receive Neyland’s birth certificate, and expedite his passport.
- Drive to Washington DC to the South African Embassy and turn in our visa application
- Purchase airfare
- End of July, LEAVE FOR SOUTH AFRICA!!!
We still have several meetings between now and the time we leave, and are trusting God to continue providing the remaining 18% needed to reach our support goal!
Thank you all for praying with us, and we believe that our Great God can and will supply our every need according to His riches in Glory!
Your Missionaries to South Africa,
Stephen, Ashlee, Peyton, Eli, and Neyland
