Stranger Prayers

In the first weeks after landing in America several people told me, “I pray for you every day.” Two of these individuals I had never even met! I cannot express how encouraging it was to arrive back and find many remembering and praying for us. Our three-month furlough began September 25, and we have been thrilled to see faithful churched, dear friends, and so many people we love.

1,000 miles each week, and counting

That’s our logbook so far, and thankfully our bodies are strong, our spirits are high, and the car is still running well.

and we plan on returning to the USA for three months in 2019. Not only will this allow us to be in South Africa longer, but it will also enable us to report back to churches more frequently. If we have been unable to be with you this furlough, we look forward to being with you in 2019.

In the meanwhile… Watch our latest ministry update video!
