Hard to believe that we are already entering into the 2018 Holiday Season! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday’s for several obvious reasons; i.e. smoked turkey, dressing, and sweet potato casserole, but also because it helps me to pause and consider just how blessed I am of the Lord!
Yesterday, we had an amazing time of preaching, and fellowship at Soweto Baptist Church’s men’s conference. Thulasizwe was with me and raved about all three of the great bible messages. I’m grateful to have a friend that desires God’s Word and a willingness to learn it!
I’m also thankful to announce, that through the generosity of God’s people, the Bond family has been able to purchase a van for their family! They are doing a fantastic work in Johannesburg, serving sacrificially, and I’m thrilled that we had just a small part in meeting a need!
I would ask you to pray with us for the following:
- Camp Rhino. Camp will be December 10-14 and we are expecting God to do great things in the hearts and lives of each camper!
- Our Church property. Due to some legal complications, the house we were looking to purchase will no longer be a viable option. Our search continues for God’s direction! Please pray with us for wisdom!
- Lighthouse Baptist Church in Hout Bay. They are currently without a pastor, and are doing everything they can to drive on for the Lord! God allowed me to preach a couple of Sunday’s there and we had a great time in the Lord. Please pray for them to have wisdom and direction as they continue to be a Lighthouse in Hout Bay!
As always, I want to thank each of you for your continued love, prayers, and support for our family! You are all greatly loved and appreciated!
