It gives us great joy to be able to update you this New Year. Our New Year began with us realligning ourselves to God’s vision for our lives. We grew up learning and serving leaders who constantly supported other missionaries whilst serving as missionaries themselves. We see the fruits of their life and want to imitate their heart for sowing into missions and missionaries.
This past year we have been able to support missions and missionaries that are close to our hearts. And we are excited to keep sowing into the dreams and visions that God has seeded in others. We have experienced so many miraculous moments where we have not always had the money to support all that we needed to, but God has time and time again proved His Sovereignty in this matter. Do pray for us as we continue to fulfill this part of our calling as Missionaries; to be givers.
As we grow into a family of three, we hope and pray to provide for our child just like our Father does for us. We submit all our doubts, fears, excitement, joy and plans (and bills) into His Hands and are excited to see how He will shape us this year.
We both continue to serve the church here with a grateful heart. We have sound and wise leadership over us that we are allowed to learn from and we are both extremely grateful for that. We are both transitioning to a stage where we intensively train up leaders to lead other people, and we have a year filled with Biblical studies, worship and mentorship waiting for us. To be able to work for His Kingdom in anyway is an honor and we try our best to remain faithful with all that we’ve been given.
We have no idea what is coming our way, but when we look at 2018, we realize that having submitted our lives to a God that holds the universe means to sit back and watch what God does. Yes we have had our fair share of sturggles, but that was part of the promise of following Jesus. When we look back now, we see God’s hand upon our health, our ministry, our finances and ofcourse our families.
Pray with us for the people to know real Love, to be delivered from the chains of the world. And we pray that this year you sow into a vision, a poeple or a place that God is speaking to you about without any hesitance!
