Prayer Support

“Mostly, please pray that the hearts of the people I serve are open and that their lives are changed as they encounter Jesus Christ. Pray that God fills my heart with joy to serve well His people in South Africa despite the language and cultural barriers. Please pray that the hearts of people here in the United States are moved through the power of the Holy Spirit to pray and support me financially so that they ‘are with me’ on this awesome journey of faith. Finally, please ask God to help me focus on the fact that I am following His plan and am doing His work regardless of all the logistical tasks I must complete.”
