Dear Pastor and Churches,
First I want to say thank you to all of those who gave us extra support for Christmas. This means so much to our family and we had a great Christmas and New Year. Being able to spend it with our family for the first time since 2017 was special and our children had a blessed time. If we are not scheduled to be with your church and you would like an update please contact me. I have already made a couple of update videos for some churches we couldn't be with and seemed to have a good response. Again we are so thankful for our supporters and we wouldn't be able to do what we do without you all!
Since the first week of December, we have been traveling. And now we are about to head into our busiest time. We were blessed to be in Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Indiana, and Michigan. We had 1 new church partner with our ministry and we raised about $3,000 for our new church plant this month. Because of Covid, we have had about 7 meetings canceled in Dec and Jan but the Lord is a blessing and we know he will supply our needs for our support and church plant. Please continue to pray for the people of Motherwell. Please continue to pray for the people of Motherwell. God has put these people on my heart and they desperately need the Gospel. We will be returning to South Africa in April and look to plant the church around late summer 2021.
We praise the Lord for the 22 souls saved and Camp Rhino Jr. Camp this year. Missionary Mark Coffey is looking to also have a teen camp, but with South Africa going on a lockdown, it has been pushed back. Although we know Covid is real and it can be scary we must not allow it to stop us from giving the Gospel. I know Mark feels this way as well and I ask that you pray for him as he seeks wisdom in dealing with this situation. Please also be in prayer for Missionary Jeremy Hall and Pastor Mxolisi and their new Church plant in Slovo.
