Special service

This past Saturday we had a special ordination and licensing service for our pastors here in South Africa.  This was the first time this has happened in the history of the work here in South Africa.  We are so thankful to the Lord for the progress He is giving in the work here.  Mr. Howard our Regional Director was visiting so he was able to take part in the service.  Two men were ordained and two pastors received licenses.

All Thumbs

It looks like our little girl will be a thumb sucker. She hasn't mastered the concept but she does it quite often!

Church Ladies

Let me introduce you to a couple of ladies from our Manyatseng church. I hope you will pray for them.  The young lady on the left is Nthabiseng.  She has only been saved less than a year.  She always has a smile on her face and testifies that God is working in her life.  The older lady on the right is Makamohelo.  She has been attending our church for about a year and a half.  She is really saved and is a tremendous blessing in the church and community.  She never misses any service of the church unless it is absolutely beyond her control. Pray for these ladies.  Life for them isn't easy.
