Hello friends! In 5 short hours (yes, I need to go to bed) me and 4 other brothers (one from Germany and 3 from Masi that we just baptized) head out for a pilgrimage to Mozambique (for a week) and Swaziland (for 3 days). We are driving in a Toyota truck and are looking forward to an amazing journey. It is about 24 hours one way.
The purpose: to meet the family and friends of our Mozambican brothers, to show them the change in their lives and to share with them about Jesus and his saving grace. We plan to also gather people and teach them about God's heart for church. Then, in Swaziland, I will be teaching for a few days on church planting with an organiztion called Acts of Faith (Mennonite work in Swazi).
This is a discipleship trip/missionary journey for these young followers of Jesus.
They are pumped! I am pumped!
Will you pray with us? The dirve is long, the mosqitos will be bad, the weather will be hot, the money is tight, the borders can be a massive challenge, but our GOD is able and in control!
(You can look back through this blog for many stories about these guys- John, Ernest, Shawn.)
