It has been a fantastic week so far as we draw closer and closer to our departure date! Neyland’s birth certificate came in, and we will be obtaining his passport very soon! This is another step in the right direction for our visas.
Today, I spent the day with my pastor, Tony Howeth and we were looking through our checklist of things to get done before the end of July. With our current average support, only 20 more partnering churches are needed to give us full support! This is a very exciting milestone for me and my family! Please continue praying for the remainder of our support! God is able!
Later this week, I have the honor of preaching a men’s fellowship at my “other home church,” Whitfield Baptist, Pastor Wayne Cofield! Friday evening, we will be barbecuing and fellowshipping around the table and the Word of God! I am greatly looking forward to a great time with these men.
Please pray for me Saturday as I will be heading to Louisiana, Texas, and New Mexico for the week presenting South Africa to several churches! Ashlee and the boys will stay behind and continue getting things ready on the home front. Neyland will also have his one month check-up! I can’t believe how quickly time escapes us!
I do want you all to know how grateful and humbled I am for your continuous love, support, and prayers for our family! We are eternally thankful for each of you!
Your Missionaries to South Africa,
Stephen, Ashlee, Peyton, Eli, and Neyland
