Holiday Bible Club #1 - Grace Baptist Church, Queensburgh

We had a great week at Holiday Bible Club (VBS)! It was exciting to see all the children being challenged to know God and His Word more, to obey and serve Him!

On Friday a little girl told Marissa that she wanted to know Jesus, and Marissa was able to clearly share the gospel message with her. What an exciting opportunity for Marissa, and little Danika now knows for sure how her sins can be forgiven!

Here is a little video I put together from the week:

School Holidays

We are on a 3 week "holiday" from school, but it is not really a break for us! Keep us in prayer as this week Brad & the kids are at Holiday Bible Club (VBS) at Grace Baptist in Queensburgh. Next week, the kids & I will be at Holiday Bible Club at Grace Baptist Amanzimtoti. And the 3rd week, Brandon will be back to school while Marissa & Brad head off to camp, Marissa as a camper and Brad as the speaker. Pray for health, servant's hearts and most of all, lives changed for Christ!
at the same time, our teammates in Joburg have travelled the 2 1/2 hours to Welkom and are running a satellite camp for teens. Please pray for them as they work alongside existing ministries in Welkom to help them lead others to Christ and strengthen Christians.

This weekend we hosted a team of 14 young adults on a missions trip from Joburg. They came to the South Coast to assist at a youth camp. It was so encouraging to have them here! We have known quite a few of these young adults for years through Word of Life clubs and camps, and a number attended the Word of Life Discipleship Training Centre. They seem like family to us. They ran the service Sunday evening at Grace Baptist Church in Queensburgh, and we felt like Paul when he wrote, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." (3 John 1:4)

Great weekend! Went to a Youth Event where there must have been around 200 young people and meet several new churches. We visited a new church on Sunday that I pray we will be able to assist in the near future and then took a group of young people to a different church Sunday night. Love seeing people serve and humbled by being apart of it!
