Prayer & Praise

Dear praying friends,

Join us in praising the Lord for the wonderful work the Motovilov family are doing with the children of Mauersnek, South Africa.  This past Wednesday they had a little Christmas program to share with parents and the community what the children have been learning in the afternoons after school.  The children did a GREAT job, and we were so please with the good turnout of parents and people from this township.  Please keep praying for the Motovilovs and these children they are working with!

Also, we want to ask for your special prayers for the Marais and the Bible Distribution ministry.  Bro. Pieter is making a special trip to Windhoek, Namibia this week to meet with the General Secretary of the Bible Society there.  He is hoping to arrange the printing of Bibles for distribution next year.  Please pray for traveling mercy for him and for God's will to be done in this meeting!  Also pray for the Bible Societies!  Many of them hardly have stock of Bibles these days.

Thanks for your faithful prayers!
Glenn, Stephanie, Kaitlyn, Kristell, & Caleb

Pastors Retreat

This past weekend we held a retreat for HIM's pastors in South Africa and Lesotho.  We are so grateful for your financial support that makes a time of rest, fellowship, and learning like this possible!

We went to St. Augustine's just outside Ladybrand.
Steve and Marita Shone were such great hosts.
I would highly recommend this place!
11 pastors plus us missionaries attended.
Rev. Sidney Grant, President of our mission, was the speaker.
He taught about "Training Tomorrow's Leaders Today"
Everyone seemed to enjoy the food even though the Basotho missed their
"papa"or corn meal mush that is their staple food.
Valera and I also shared devotionals.  The picture I took of him
didn't turn out, so I'll have to use the one he took of me.

President Grant held a special installation service
for me as HIM Africa Director
