Sorry our posts have been coming a little late – we are truly grateful for all of your support and love by interceding for us on this trip.
The easiest way to summarize today would just be to share with you two quotes….
“You’ve stuffed the world with your glory and everything is screaming “You’re awesome!” -from Josh Mack’s morning prayer 🙂
Unreal. God makes the best stuff. -Nate’s first impressions of the game reserve 🙂
But here’s a more specific recap for you 😉
Today we got the awesome opportunity to worship the splendor of our God by enjoying His breathtaking creation! Throughout the two hour bus ride at Pillansburg game reserve, we were not only awestruck at the amazing varieties of wildlife, but also by the indescribable beauty of the scenery – Mark got so many great shots (: We’ll do our best to get pictures up as soon as we can for you all!
After returning from the reserve, we were blessed to be able to do some outreach at a park in SunnySide (which is a poorer suburb of Pretoria). We separated into small groups of three or four and just talked to those hanging around, invited them to come to Living Hope Church’s Sunday service, and to join us at the hill in the center of the park where we sang a few songs, and Newton boldly shared the gospel. Please pray with us for the hearts of those who listened, and for those who didn’t. We praise Christ for His saving power, and cannot thank Him enough for His matchless grace and love in adopting us.
We’re looking forward to another day of hard work and service tomorrow! Please continue to pray for good working weather and for health for the team 🙂
This trip could not be happening without the faithful prayers of so many wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ! Thank you so much for partnering with us and being such a blessing and encouragement to us 🙂
Humbled by His grace,
-Deborah and Matthew 🙂
