Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings to you in the name of Jesus!

Wow, how time flies! It has been a while since our last communication. We hope and pray that this finds all of you well. We have been following the news in the United States via the internet and we are reminded daily of the times that we are living in. When life appears to be a roller coaster, full of turmoil and fear for so many, we find great peace and comfort resting in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Psalm 91 says this so beautifully, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” If you have a few minutes, read Psalm 91 and let the Lord speak to you about the promises he has for those who trust in Him.

Now, on to new and exciting happenings in Swaziland. Some of you may remember months ago when two of the children from our Care Point, Rosa and Fernando, were placed in the custody of one of our Children’s Cup teachers, Peggy Dlamini. They are thriving under the loving care of this amazing woman of God.

The need for orphan care continues to rise at an astounding rate. As a result, Children’s Cup is continuing to look at opportunities to be Jesus’s hands and feet and to care for the many orphans in Swaziland. In the near future, Peggy Dlamini, will transition from teacher and Care Giver to full time Care Giver. Due to deaths in her immediate family, she has three children of family members living with her, plus an additional six children from the community. Caring for nine children is definitely a labor of love that requires full time attention.

Randy and I are so excited to be able to come along side Peggy and help her in her new ministry as a full time “Care Giver”. We look forward to discipling her as she raises these little ones in the ways of the Lord.

Peace and grace to all of you,

Randy, Karen and Shelly
