All About God

God is big. God is great. God is very powerful. Satan is His enemy. Jesus is God’s son. He was born in Bethlehem. God is an awesome God. God is love. God is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. God is the smartest. The Godhead is the Holy Trinity, Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit. God helps us in times of need. God sent His son to earth to save us all. God hates sin. God is perfect, pure, and never sins. - Brandon

God made the world. God’s son, Jesus, had a time to be on earth. Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is, too. God is powerful. God is worthy. God has not sinned. God doesn’t have an end and doesn’t have a beginning. God loves us. God forgives us. - Marissa

Prayer Update

We are thrilled about all God is doing in South Africa! The club ministry has taken off for the year, quiet times and materials are distributed, and youth clubs are well under way.  Brad has been busy, driving to Durban (around 6 hours), flying to Capetown, and driving all over Johannesburg.  We have increased our club ministry to 31 clubs, without even pursuing any new clubs on our own! God has brought people to us that are interested in the using the Word of Life ministry with their youth.

We have been printing some of our own materials this year due to an increase in costs at the printer, and Bible Baptist Church for the Deaf has been helping us by spiral binding it for us.  This has been a such a blessing!

Friday, Brad will be collecting Quiet Times from them, delivering them to another church and then traveling to yet another church to visit their youth group and meet with the Pastor.  Travel can be hectic in Joburg on a Friday night.

Please pray for us as we plan our BattleZone Camp which will run from March 30 - April 2. This is a camp to train the youth in evangelism, as well as provide ministry opportunities.

Love,
Mary, for the fam
