March is always one of the busiest months for a missionary. We are so thankful we have never had any major issues when it comes to our traveling. We have never been in a single accident and we praise God for his protection. We were in 13 different churches and 2 missions conferences this past month. We were in Mississippi, North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The Lord blessed us greatly, we had 2 churches take us on for support and over $5,000 raised for our church plant. It is great to see familiar faces as we travel and to be with those who have supported us over the last few years. Thank you to all of those who pray and support us. We could not do what we do without you. Please pray for us as we have 1 more month of travel left before we return to South Africa. Please pray that we can reach our support and church plant goals before May.
Thank you for your continued prayers of my in-laws. They have recovered from Covid-19 and are back to normal life again. We celebrated Mercy's birthday last month. Our baby is now 3 and growing up fast. Both Silas and Mercy have spent more time in Africa than in America and like us are ready to get back to South Africa ASAP. The South African government has many different rules and regulations when it comes to the way they deal with Covid. Please pray that we can meet all the requirements needed. We are waiting on Silas' updated passport and then we will purchase our return tickets. We are looking to leave sometime in May and I will announce the date when we get our tickets.
