Update

No lengthy articles, just a brief paragraphJ

 

Trusting you are well and growing in your Faith!  Life is moving at the speed of… well, life.  Char has been in the USA for 3.5 weeks and returns in one more week.  It’s times like these I reflect in Genesis 2 “it is not good for man to be alone”.  I miss her terribly, however this season has resulted in some very sweet times of worship and ministry with the Lord for me.  Schools of ministry are going quite well- several students have testified that their lives are changed, and they feel hope and have broken free from condemnation and judgements of others (hooray!).  The Kidz Kingdom Centers are continuing to feed and we have a short delay in securing our AWANA(approved workmen are not ashamed) kids curriculum- but SOON we will start kids clubs up to disciple the next generation.  Our cooking mothers are doing well in their microfinance hand craft ventures(pic attached of one of them-Mom Moerdar (she also cares for the babies during the day at the center))  The other picture is of “Dorcas”.  I spoke at my friend Pastor Richards church this weekend, and OH what a small world.  This lady(not a member of the church) was visiting yesterday, and after service we began to speak with each other- Long story short…She was one of my nurses 2 years ago when I was in the hospital in Nelspruit(50km away from where I was yesterday).

We were given land to build our pastors and leaders training facility, however the land is VERY inconvenient for the local public to get to-requiring several busses and additional expense, so we remain believing that there is a PRIME location coming available soon to us in the heart of the Elukwatini/Nhlazatshe community (el-ook-wah-tee-knee / En-shlaw-zaht-she).  Soon we will break ground on the center.  We are looking into farming (not for us, but )as a way to utilize what is here locally to supplement and support the existing efforts moving forward.  Skills training, employment and more could/would occur here- Stay tuned!

 

Remember to dream bigger- Gods vision is always best.

 

Bless you,

 

Mitch

Dynomite!! Short but powerful! I'm amazed at all the things God accomplishes with y'all in S. Africa! I'm so jealous to see all God's doing, and the many breakthroughs happening for His glory there!

Kinda feels like you're missing a rib with Char on the other side of the planet eh? Bless you Mitch & Char, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of your ministry!
Love, Buffalo!

I praise the Lord for the work HE has given to you and Char. Both of you are so faithful to HIS call.

God bless you both! :)
