Report from Africa #8
I am standing and opening God's Word with leaders from ten different Word of Life Bible Churches in Leroro, South Africa. Several hundred attended and engaged the story of the African, Simon of Cyrene, who carried the cross of Jesus. He was the first person to have the blood of Jesus flow down his back.
It seems that we have been going non stop in Mpumalanga since we arrived. I am speaking in village churches every Sunday! We have averaged two church services each Sunday. Bible teaching and training is scheduled in Bad Plass, Elukwatini and Bushbuckridge.
We are connected with four different ministries and coming alongside numerous missionaries. Their lives also are spinning at a high rate of speed. Pray as we address so many issues, hearts and minds.
In the midst of the busyness there comes a sobering moment every so often. One of our supports, prayer warriors and friends stepped into heaven. He has faithfully supported Deeper Still Missions since its inception. Then we are reminded that life goes on back home. It makes us miss home and you!
These moments make us want to speak with you and see what is going on in your world today. There are few things in life that are so important than friends and memories of our time together. It is sad when we can't honor our friend and attend his memorial.
Thank you for caring for us. We are so blessed by so many.
