Lesotho Update

Dear praying friends,

Please join us in prayer and praise!


  • Last week while Stephanie was cooking supper, the valve that controls one of the burners on our propane stove came apart and large volume of propane was blowing out into the inside of the stove.  Other burners were lit when this happened!  It just "happened" that I came into the kitchen as the valve came apart.  I raced outside to close the propane tank while Stephanie hurried the kids out of the kitchen.  We clearly felt God's providential protection over us and our home.  There would have almost surely been an explosion within seconds if it weren't for God's intervention!  We are so thankful!
  • Join the van der Merwes (HIM missionaries in South Africa) in praising the Lord  for an unusually good harvest on their family farm this year.  The depend on this to live and support their ministry.


  • The Motovilov's are in America and have begun their deputation.  Please pray that the Lord would supply their financial needs!
  • Pray for the Marais' as they sell Bibles in Zambia.  The work is not easy and their health is not good.  Also pray that each Bible would bear fruit!

If you haven't seen any of the Engage Africa videos, here's a link to the first one.  It starts out with Rev. Kali's testimony.  If you are needing ideas for a missionary service, this Engage program is excellent!  For more information, you can go to the website.  There is an email address near the bottom of the page if you would like more information.

Engage Africa

Have you heard of our mission organization's Engage program?  It is a well thought out program about your church and the Great Commission.  Each month you can receive a professional quality video featuring an aspect of Hope International Missions' work around the world.  You will also receive bulletin inserts, a leaders guide and other material to help you make a meaningful missionary service.

Right now the featured region is Africa.  I am really impressed with the footage Lucas Wilson and Joshua Powell got in the short time they were here last year--traditional dancing, some unusual clips of African traditional religion, testimonies from dedicated Christians, drone footage of the Qeme Plateau, and much more!. I would encourage you to watch the first video then go here to find out more about the program.  If you like what you see, please make a donation on that page to help out with the production of these videos.  Even small gifts make a big difference!

Furlough Plans

Many of you have been praying that we would get a visa for Caleb to come to America.  We don't have it yet, but we are definitely making progress!  Our interview appointment is scheduled for the 24th of August at the US Embassy in South Africa.  There are no guarantees, but we expect to be granted a visa soon after that.  Then we have to make a trip to America to actually get his citizenship.

By faith we are scheduling our furlough from October to some time in March.  Our family is spread from Florida and Louisiana to Pennsylvania and out to Colorado, so we'll be covering quite a bit of the country.  If you would like us to visit your church (or you personally,) we'd love to hear from you!

Lesotho Update

Dear Praying Friends,

Thank you so much for your prayers as we traveled to Namibia in June to host a TLC team and help with Bible distribution.  Because of other obligations, our time there was short.  There is still much work to be done with the Bibles this year.  Please pray for Bro. & Sis. Pieter Marais as they carry on.  They were planning to travel from Oshakati to Katima Molilu just across the border from Zamiba today.  They will be going into Zambia as soon as they have Bibles, export papers and everything else ready.  They'll be selling English and Lozi Bibles in the Western and Southern Provinces of Zambia for the next few weeks.  Please support them with your prayers!

Also, the Motovilov family have completed their first term in Africa and are traveling back to America for furlough and deputation next week.  Please pray for them as they fly, re-acclimate to America, and begin their travels.
