Merry Christmas from South Africa!
Well, it’s summer here and hot! It’s a very different feeling this Christmas than what we are used to. Schools are out for summer break, we just wrapped up our teen camp, and the tourists are all over the place!
I am extremely grateful for all that God did during our teen camp! Over the course of the week, over 100 young people heard great bible preaching and teaching, built christian friendships with other believers, and was influenced all week by some great men and ladies of God!
The best report from camp if the four young people that placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ! Several others made decisions to serve God faithfully however He would allow them. I am thrilled with the working of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of these young people!
Over the next couple of weeks, we look forward to continue to take advantage of school being out by spending as much time as possible with the young people that attended camp. I am always amazed at how hungry they are to learn God’s word and serve in every opportunity they are given.
Please pray with us as we get back to language school next week and continue to learn Xhosa. This week was a great reminder of the importance of being able to preach and teach in their heart language!
Thank you all for your continued love, prayers and support for our family! From our home to yours, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
