September Prayer Letter

We've had a few people mention that they were unable to access our prayer letter, so we thought that we would post the text in a separate blog. Here it is! :)

"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."

Ephesians 6:19-20

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!
