Anyone that knows me knows my passion for Africa, especially those lost and now I give thanks to God that we will be returning to Swaziland to start a new Manna project. The main thrust of the work is to reach the lost, equip them so they can tell their neighbor and countrymen the Good News of salvation through the blood of our loving Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. To stay with them long enough to bring them to maturity without enabling them and then to go find new "men and women of peace" and start sowing seed all over again. The goal is to disciple people to GO and disciple people to Go and disciple people and so on. Churches planting churches, not limiting God by our lack of faith and limited vision but to dream "God Possible".

We go in to start the work September 13th, 2011. Please keep us in your prayers.
-Pray for "the men of peace" (Luke 10) that God is preparing before we even get there.
-Pray that we have courage no matter what the circumstances and that God give us wisdom and all we need to be faithful men and women in the harvest fields.
-Pray that we will not grow weary and that when our Lord returns He will be able to say "Well done, good and faithful servants".
-Pray for the people of Swaziland that many will come to be set free from sin.

More Help on the Way

All is going well with the settling in of Sean and Nicole.  They are giving a big hand in helping Brian prepare for the arrival of Drew, Tate, and Wesley on the 5th of November, who are coming in for a couple of weeks prepared to give blood, sweat, and tears (hoping that just the sweat is all that will be necesary).

Looking forward to hearing of their "Out of Africa" experience: Camping in the "bush" of Africa, sharing stories as they're cooking over a fire, relaxing under the wide starry sky after a long, hot day of clearing land, listening to the night life as they drift to sleep....

Boehrigs Visit

Please be praying for Sean and Nicole Boehrig as they are traveling to Swaziland this weekend.  They are scheduled to arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday evening where Brian will pick them up and then make their way to Swaziland the following day.

Keep them in your prayers that they can see what it is that God would have them do in Swaziland. What His timing is for them. That they stay in good spirit, health, and energized during their 3 month visit.

Their visit will be a huge blessing to Brian in these beginning stages of the work.

Another call from Brian has the latest update of the progress being done:
  • a septic tank is being dug. 
  • rocks gathered for the foundation of the first building to include shower and toilet.
  • a drill rig lined up to come out next Tuesday to begin drilling for water.
  • caravan set up for temporary residence for the Boehrigs visit.
  • discovering means of getting electricity to the property.
  • continuing to clear the property for fencing.
Clearing is by hand and is slow and labor intensive, but Brian says all is going well and he's enjoying the work and having the opportunity to get to know some of the locals.
