Call to Prayer                                                                                 February 2020

Dear Prayer partners           

Thank you for the many responses to our last Call To Prayer and so many appreciating the slide show we sent. I must admit, I enjoyed taking the photo's and putting together the slide show.

Coming back to South Africa and settling down in our house again, spending time with our children and grandchildren has been wonderful. 

Ministry continues with many follow up emails and phone calls to do. Please do pray for this ongoing side of the work. Currently, we are in the process of placing 3 new couples in Europe. One couple will be there for 3 months, but the other two are looking at long term ministry.

We have so appreciated the team of partners, many prayer supporters, encouragers and financial supporters we have had over these many years. God has raised up many wonderful team members and faithful partners to be part of the many ministries we have had from the beginning. We want to thank each one for your generosity and faithfulness.  Words can never truly express how blessed we have found this past especially 26 years we have served with, AEF/SIM. We have felt loved and cared for and supported by God's people, by many Churches and fellowships. We have been a great partnership and team. Thank you. 

This is the way God has determined we should live and serve together with you. Trusting Him for our needs and God through His people enabling us, by your prayers, finances, encouragement to do ministry. The road has been long, often hard, BUT God has carried us through

Having come home we have been confronted with the fact that our support has dropped over the past few months. Some of our supporters have passed on and are now with the Lord. Others have retired and live on a fixed income, many in South Africa have seen real hardships. Many churches are financially struggling, in spite of having supported us often for 26 years are finding it harder and have had to reduce their support or stop.

In God's providence, we have been able to keep going for the last couple of months, but we are now faced with the need to do deputation in order to raise our support. This will mean that we will be visiting our supporters and new churches to find new support to enable us to continue with the ministry in Europe.
At the same time, SIM wants us to undergo yearly medical checkups and take a time of complete rest.

Our initial plans are to visit KZN from the 14th March to 27th of March. To be available in Gauteng from the 28th of March until the 6th of April. If you would like for us to give some feedback on the past couple of years, or do some mission training and seminars, please contact us as soon as possible to make arrangements especially personal visits.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours in Royal Service

Php 4:11-14  Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble.
