Dear Pastors and praying friends.
Thank you for the continued prayers and support. Your sacrifice allows us to serve South Africa.
Although my wife and I have enjoyed time with our families over the holiday, we miss our South African home and family as well. We have already begun our traveling and we desire your prayers as we continue. After our battle with jet-lag, we are finally getting back to normal. Also, our children are getting comfortable with family and friends and enjoyed Thanksgiving.
This past week we heard of the sickness and passing of the father of Pastor Sipho Bonga. It is believed to be due to Covid-19. Please pray for Pastor Sipho, his wife Zukhanye, and their church. Pastor Sipho has been a help to my family in our language studies as well as our future church plant. Also remember the people of South Africa, some of the people do not have the health as other parts of the World and may be more susceptible to this virus.
Camp Rhino is proceeding with children's and youth camp this year. The summer is starting to heat up in SA and the youth get very excited for camps. Please pray for Missionary Mark Coffey as well as the pastors as they prepare. The camp will be in the first and second week of January this year instead of the week before Christmas as usual. Pray for salvation and for men to be called into service for Christ as well as the men preparing to preach to many unsaved during camp weeks.
Please continue to pray for our future church plant. We are asking God to raise $40,000 for this endeavor. We currently have raised nearly $3,000. There have been two churches that have promised to give to the church plant. If you would like to help you can visit three2thrive.org/giving and select "The Sullivans". Every dollar given we receive into this account will go directly into our Church plant fund. We still have some Wednesday nights and a few Sundays available if you are interested in hearing more about what God is doing in South Africa.
