Dear Friends and Family,
Greetings from Swaziland. All is well here, we are happy, healthy and blessed. We hope you are too!
The people here in the local community are being blessed immeasurably by the Lord’s presence in their lives (Psalm 103:1-5). As they mix faith with the promises of God (Hebrews 4:2) they are seeing lives changed, physical and emotional healings and deliverance from demonic oppression (Matthew 10:7-8). We are learning more and more each day that who we are in Christ is much more important than anything we could do for the Lord in the form of ministry (Philippians 3:7-11). What I mean by that is simply this. We don’t have a course or program on mixing faith with the promises of God. We don’t have a life transformation program, a healing ministry, or a deliverance ministry. Yet all these things are happening because we are simply walking as true disciples in the steps of Jesus ( John 2:6). The Lord’s power to transform lives, to heal and to deliver is at work because of His life and power working through us. “for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13). Word is spreading that if you want newness of life, or healing, or deliverance that God is doing these things among his people.
The church continues to reach out to local people. We have been spending more and more time getting to know them and helping them in their surroundings, outside of the four walls of the church. This consists of things like helping to improve housing, giving clothes to people who don’t have them, feeding the hungry and teaching the bible in small groups in the village.
Pray that we continue to discern God’s voice and his direction for his church.
We Love you and are eternally grateful for your prayers and financial support.
Randy, Karen and Shelly
