Our Departure Date

We are excited to let you know we have reached 100% of our support requirements!  Due to this, we have purchased our tickets for our departure to South Africa.  Our departure date is December 28th.  We thank the Lord for His provision and perfect timing.

We are so grateful for our financial and prayer supporters who help make this ministry effort possible.  It is a joy serving the Lord with you.

The plan is for us to fly into Durban for the Annual ZEMA Missionary Conference.  Then, we will travel up to Johannesburg for several weeks of language study.  When that is completed, we will go to King William’s Town.  This will be our new home for our first 4-year term. 

We encourage you to keep us in your prayers as we make this transition.

    Fantastic Date! You can enjoy the Holidays, and have the going away parties-bittersweet…..I think it is a miracle to get the 100% financial completion. I remember you two patiently saying “We’ll see how the Lord finishes raising the money”…He works in amazing ways. I hope we get some more coffee shop times. I told Lauren’s parents how I cherish every meeting together right now…See you soon…Love, Aunt Linda

  2. Hey Lauren, it’s Del and Mark! Just thought I’d look you up and you’re off to SA. Awesome!

    Jon & Lauren: What a joy it was when Gayleene and I received your newsletter “update” – and read that you are at 100% of your support need. PRAISE THE LORD!

    We do rejoice with you… and will be praying much for your COMMISION-ING SERVICE ON DEC. 26TH.. AT CCC. WE WOULD LOVE TO BE THERE IN PERSON… BUT THAT ISN’T POSSIBLE. YOUR DEPARTURE ON THE 28TH… WILL BE A HARD DAY… BUT A DAY OF REJOICING.

    GOD BLESS YOU BOTH… AND YOUR FAMILIES. WE JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW HOW HAPPY WE ARE FOR YOU… AND FOR THE WORK OF ZEMA. Your’s in Jesus’ Name, PASTOR O.

  4. Jon & Lauren,
    We received your Ministry Update in the mail today. Great to hear everything is going well for you. That your departure is still on for Dec. 28. Thanks for keeping us updated. Praying with you in these exciting days for you.
