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.

Delayed Easter Eggs

Went out to the property again today and took the Easter eggs with us just in case some of the kids were
around during the vacation from school. All the school age kids were away but we had a slew of
preschoolers come out to meet us as we pulled along side the road with our box of Easter eggs. So cute and gracious with receiving their treat.
We have a meeting lined up to discuss with the community leaders about being able to have a gathering of the little ones and teaching them some preschool activities.
This will allow us to have more involvement in the community and help us to learn the
language, as well as showing our respect by following their tradition and culture of doing things.
Things move slowly here. You've heard “Africa has it's own rhythm”? It does and it's hard not to just
jump into doing things how we've done them in other places, but what may work somewhere else
doesn't mean it'll work here. We make our feeble attempt to be “all things to all people” in the imprint
of Jesus' footsteps.
