Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Wow! It has been a long time! We have been very busy and have seen the Lord doing amazing things every single day.

During the month of February, we had an amazing group of friends come to Swaziland from Crosspoint Community Church in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. They had t-shirts made which gave the reason for their trip which read,“Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8

In the morning, time was spent at “The Bride of Christ” Church and the “I Am Not Forgotten” orphan home. They loved on the kids, planted a HUGE vegetable garden, built a two hole “long drop” or toilet, completed a barbed wire fence around the property to keep the cows out and put in a concrete bib on the back of the church building so the water wouldn’t seep into the church through the wall! This was just in the mornings!!!!!

Every afternoon we visited Mbekelweni CarePoint where the children learned about the life of Joseph. They learned that God was intimately involved in Joseph’s life, and that God is intimately involved in their lives too! They learned that everything that happened in Joseph’s life was for Joseph’s good and for God’s glory. They learned that God will do the same for them too! The children learned that God gives us hope, special abilities, wisdom, forgiveness and a family. Each and every day there was a time of worship and prayer, bibles lessons, games, fun and food. Friday was a special celebration as a family where the children were blessed with a chicken feast!

The Lord ministered through the team in so many ways. The children’s lives were changed forever; they witnessed firsthand the love of those who are called by God to go and make disciples of all nations.

Please pray with us:

That the children will continue to grow in their relationship with the Lord, that they will know by experience this loving God who cares for them and that by His very nature, He is a Father at heart and he wants them to be a part of His family.

Finally, that just like God was with Joseph through good times and bad times, He is with them all the time to lead them, guide them, strengthen them and save them to spend eternity with HIM!

We are making plans to come and visit the Unites States in July and August. We look forward to seeing each of you and sharing in person what the Lord is doing in Swaziland!

May the Lord bless each of you.
