Dear Friends and Family,
Happy Thanksgiving to all! We are very thankful for the Lord’s grace in our lives. We are thankful that He is using us in Swaziland to build His kingdom. We are thankful for all of our friends and family who love us, support us and pray for us. We pray that the Swazi’s who the Lord has touched, are thankful as well despite their difficult circumstances. “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Th 5:16-18)
The works that the Lord has established here in Bulembu, Swaziland over the last year are thriving. Ministries to the poor, oppressed and the orphans are making a difference in the lives of many Swazi’s. Swazi’s have been raised up by the Lord to take over these various works, and we praise the Lord for that. We see what the Lord has done here in Bulembu and have a distinct impression that the Lord wants to use us to have an impact on more people. We are in the process of acting on this leading.
The Lord has been showing us through many different circumstances and through the Word of God, that he wants us to move from Bulembu to the larger capital cities of Mbabane and Manzini. We believe the reason is for us to have an impact on the thousands in Mbabane and Manzini rather that the hundreds in Bulembu. In obedience to his leading, we will be moving into temporary housing in Mbabane.
Please pray that the Lord will continue to lead us and guide us in building His kingdom here in Swaziland.
Randy, Karen and Shelly
