Working? Taking a vacation? Catching up on your sleep?
You could do that. If you did, you'd be able to look back and see that you made some money, saw Mickey Mouse, or spent an amazing amount of time on the couch.
But what if you looked back at your summer and saw that you did something amazing? Something epic. Something that helped change the world.
Our Student Fusion teams want to help you do that in a big way.
Each team takes students just like you, puts them through a week of intense training, and then launches them out to a foreign country. Different language; different food; different everything! It's just you and your team, put there with the awesome task of sharing Christ. Sharing Christ with people who probably can't go to the type of church you can. Can't flip past nineteen Christian stations on the radio like you do. These people are lost, and nothing's going to change that until someone like you does something about it.
So...think about it. What are you doing this summer?

"Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."
Our travels in the US this far have taken us from Michigan to Minnesota, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan back to the Lower Peninsula, then on to Pennsylvania. We are packing once again to embark on another journey!
During our travels we will be sharing what God is doing in our ministry. We will be renewing relationships with some we haven’t seen for years, and developing new relationships with others, but the goal is the same - to encourage others in their walk with Christ by sharing what He is doing in our lives and the lives of others we are in contact with in South Africa. Please pray for us all while we travel that we keep our eyes focused on the goal! Sometimes the travel can be wearing on the children and can effect the whole family.
While our overall purpose is to point individuals toward Christ, we are also working toward the goal of returning to South Africa to reach the youth there with the gospel of Christ!
Join us in reaching S. Africa for Christ!
We are still needing around $1400 per month to reach our full support level. We would like to challenge you to join our team! If each person that received our prayer letter were to support us $3 monthly we would reach our goal. No amount is too small to count for God! If you were to give up one soda pop a week, that would amount to about $5 a month. A coffee a week would be closer to $10! Will you prayerfully consider helping us reach South Africa for Christ?
On the family side, we head to Pittsburgh on Sep. 14 to USCIS for an interview for Mya’s US Citizenship. By the time you get this letter, she could be an American!

Here in South Africa we love our holidays and this coming week is no exception! We have about 4 days off this coming week so most people just take the whole week off, sounds great! However, we will be running just like normal, crazy. Youth Leader meetings on Saturday and Monday for training and phone calls for meetings in the US most nights. I love these “slow” weeks because I can usually get caught up on the things that get pushed aside.
Please pray for us as we try to fill the schedule for our upcoming furlough. If you would be interested in having us come to your church please contact us soon so we can fit you in. We are looking forward to spending time with everyone while we are in America. Thanks for the prayers!
In HIS Service,
