My wife and I are excited about beginning language school in just a few days, and we covet your prayers. Although many here speak English we know this is crucial in gaining the hearts of the Xhosa speaking people, and starting churches. Although December was busy “setting up house,” and with holidays, we did not lack in ministry opportunities.
We have been attending and working at New Life Baptist Church in the KwaDwesi township. We were also thrilled to be able to help in the first year of Camp Rhino. This was a teen camp run by missionary Mark Coffey. It was a tremendous week with 19 professions of faith. I was also blessed to be able to preach at Bro Jeremy Hall’s church, Soweto Baptist. Here a convicted murderer, shortly out of prison, trusted Christ as his savior. I am so thankful there is no sin too big for our loving Savior. Also at Soweto we had a great Christmas service preaching and testifying about Christ.
My family had a very blessed Christmas this year. We were sure to explain to our children it is because of the sacrificial giving of our supporting churches. We had many give above and beyond their regular support; and we are so thankful. We pray that you all had a blessed Christmas and a happy new year as well.
