Lesotho Update

Dear Praying Friends,

Your prayer support is such a great encouragment to us!  Here is an update that will help you pray and praise more effectively.


  •     God has been blessing the ministry of the two interns (Rosie and Rebekah) from Allegheny Wesleyan College.  Join us in praising the Lord for them and the work they are doing.  Please also pray for them as they will be returning to America in a little over a week and heading immediately into a busy college schedule!
  •     In the last Lesotho Update, we asked for you to pray for some of the students at the school in Ladybrand who were experiencing spiritual oppression.  We praise God for answering these prayers!  The one boy who was especially suffering reported being able to sleep fine now.  He reported to his teacher that he sings the Christian songs she taught him whenever he is afraid or feels that demons are attacking him, and the evil spirits go away.  He is six or seven years old, I believe.
  •     Praise the Lord that Stephanie was able to renew her driver's license!  Because of changes in immigration laws, she could not use the online facility.  We also tried getting a license for her in Lesotho, but between corruption and red tape, it seemed like an almost impossible process.  We praise the Lord that she was able to renew through snail-mail and the license was not stolen in route to our post box!


  •     With Rebekah and Rosie's help, the congregation at Ha Motheho is holding a three-day VBS which started today (Monday).  Please pray that lives will be changed there!
  •     We would like to ask for special prayer for the staff at the school in Ladybrand.  They are carrying a heavy burden and need an extra special touch from God.
  •     Rev. Pheko's wife's brother was murdered and the funeral is to be this Saturday.  Please pray much for this family, especially the orphans who have been left behind.
  •     Please pray that the Lord would send forth laborers into the whitened harvest fields of Africa!


  •     We will be attending Stephanie's brother Joe's wedding in October.  We are really looking forward to being with family and friends for about a month.  Though we are not planning deputation services, we hope to see at least a few of you!

The following verse has been a blessing to me recently:
"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." Jer. 29:13 NKJV

Thanks for your prayers!

Lesotho Update

Dear Praying Friends,
We are so very grateful for your faithful prayer support while I was in Zambia, and Stephanie and the girls stayed here at home.  Click here for a short report of the trip.
  • The Bible distribution trip to Zambia went very well.  During the two weeks we were in Chipata, Zamiba, we sold 4000 Bibles.  We also praise God for protection on the road and that we experienced no mechanical problems!  
  • While I was in Zambia, Stephanie and the ladies here at Matukeng held a VBS.  It was very well attended--some days 120 children showed up.  We believe that the Gospel is gradually penetrating some families starting with the children.  
  • Praise the Lord for supplying some part-time staff for Hope Christian Academy.  Joreth van der Merwe (daugther of Johan and Hessie van der Merwe, HIM missionaries in South Africa) joined the staff as a part-time monitor.  
  • Please continue to pray for qualified, full-time staff for the academy.  Also pray for the current staff.  They are carrying a heavy load.
  • Please pray for the students at Hope Christian Academy.  Some of them are experiencing spiritual oppression.  Pray that they and their familes will be born again!  Praise God that some of the children are seeking the Lord.
  • We are hosting two interns from Allegheny Wesleyan College--Rebekah Taylor and Rosalie Martin.  Please pray for them as they further their studies towards a missions degree.  Also pray that lives will be changed through their ministry here!
"I have seen, at different times, the smoke of a thousand villages - Villages whose people are without Christ, without God, and without hope in the world." --Robert Moffat, Pioneer missionary in South Africa
H.I.M.Thank you for praying!

Bibles for the Nations Report

On the 13th of July, I (Glenn) left for Zambia with Jon Stratton, Rev. Kali Nthabi, and Rev. Thabang Khasipe.  We picked up Rosalie Martin and Rebekah Taylor at the airport in Johannesburg.  They are missionary interns from Allegheny Wesleyan College in OH.  They will be spending six weeks with us.  In this picture we are crossing the Zambezi River by pontoon boat at Kazungula on the border between Botswana and Zimbabwe.
After four LONG days of driving, we arrived in Chipata, Zambia (red circle) right near the border of Malawi.   For a bigger map of Zambia, click here.  We joined Pieter and Hester Marais (HIM missionaries) there to sell Chichewa and English Bibles.  There was also another team from Ladybrand, South Africa there helping part of the time.

While we were in Chipata, we sold around 4000 Bibles at about $6 each.  This price was considered fair and affordable by the local people.  Some of us staffed make-shift stands from the back of our vehicles.  Others walked through the markets and busy streets selling Bibles from a backpack.  The response to our work was very positive.  The need for Bibles and solid Bible teaching in this area is very great as many Muslims are moving into the area. 

One Sunday I was invited to preach at Glorious Hope Baptist Church.  We felt very welcome and people listened attentively as I spoke about true faith.

On the way back, some of the team visited Victoria Falls near Livingstone, Zambia.  The level of the Zambezi was quite low, so it was not as spectacular as during the flood season.  Just the same, it is awe-inspiring, and the lower water level makes for less mist so that one can actually see better.

On the way back home through Botswana, we saw two female lions crossing the highway.  What an unexpected treat!
 We want to express our thankfulness to everyone who contributed towards this trip.  Traveling 4000 miles through four different countries is fairly expensive.  Even though we are safely back, you are still welcome to contribute towards these expenses if God should lay it on your heart.  If you want to contribute by writing a check, the information is here.  If you prefer to give online, click here.  At the bottom of the page, select H.I.M for the organization and type Gault Support for the designation.  Click the Paypal button, and you will be taken to a secure site where you can contribute either with your credit card or your Paypal account.
