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.

Going Up

God's timing is perfect. The problem is remembering that when time schedules aren't met according to "our" plans. We had hoped to have the first dwelling completed before the new year, but due to the complications of the initial property and relocating to our current property the building got started later and then we found ourselves facing weeks of rain that slowed the process even further. Thankfully with the labor of a small crew of Swazis, team members: Sean and Nicole, Arlyn and Maria, visitors: Drew, Tate and Wesley we have a good bit of clearing done, fencing, and are at the roofing stage.

Our goals for the future remain in tact regarding building, fish ponds and agricultural projects, but as always our priority is the people. Building deeper relationships with those who have been put before us and growing in faith of a God who sent His son to be our Savior.

Your prayers, donations and encouragement are a blessing to the work and to us. Thank you!
