First, the visit home: This past weekend we were blessed to visit Friedens Evangelical Church in Port Washington, Wisconsin. I (Lauren) grew up attending this church so it was a lot of fun seeing friends and sharing about the ministry in South Africa. Jon was able to share a message on how God uses His people to bring the “good news” to those who have yet to hear and understand it.
Now, the support update: We have reached 81% of our monthly support! We are so thankful for God’s provision through the generosity of so many supporters. This means that we can now work on setting a departure date. We are waiting to hear back from the field on their recommendation so please keep this departure in your prayers. Also, we need to raise the remaing 19% of our support before heading over to South Africa so please pray for the Lord’s timing and provision as we are hoping to have things fall into place soon.
