my life, my passion, my joy

NEWS – April 2012

“See that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. …and the Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.”(Matthew 24:6,14)

Friction between Sudan and South Sudan

In the most recent world news the situation along the border between South Sudan and Sudan is not looking good. There has been fighting and bombings in the areas along the borders and the political leaders from the North and South need to come to some form of agreement concerning the oil in the South and the use of the oil pipes that run through the northern part of Sudan. We need to pray for the situation to improve. At the moment the fighting and bombing is not affecting the area in which we are currently working, which is the very southern part of South Sudan. We are taking precautionary measures and are keeping ourselves informed. We appreciate your love, prayers and support for all of us working in South Sudan to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God at this critical time. Below is a map that was from the BBC World news website. (www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-18045919 12 May 2012)

OOOOO

OOOOO

I have appreciated all those who have bought my book. As you know from my previous news I had sold up to 300 books in South Africa. I only needed to sell 220 books to cover all the costs of the printing and have now been making a profit. With the profits up to now I have been able to invest in 2 solar powered laptop computers for our Kenyan pastor working in another part of the South Sudan and our Sudanese pastor that we are working with in our village. See pictures below

The sales have continued in the last 2 months. In South Africa 18 more books were sold and in Germany 19 books were sold. Thank you Lord. The German book is still a work in progress. We are currently in chapter 5 and I will let you know via my newsletter when it is ready and available to buy.

My travels in Germany

I had the opportunity to speak in many churches around Germany. I was also invited to speak in confirmation classes, children’s bible studies, youth events and a combined men and women’s Bible study evening. I was even invited to speak at a school in Lintorf, which was having an African theme. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to share about my experienes in Africa, my love for Jesus and how He can impact their lives too.

TIMO progress

After all my speaking in many churches in South Africa and Germany God has provided in many ways and I am most thankful for the support that has been coming in. In the last newsletter I explained that I am required to raise 15, 000 Euro to build the TIMO houses and up to now God has provided 6,980 Euro. Praise the Lord! Please continue to pray for His provision in this. Pray for Daniel and Clay and other men that will be joining us in preparing to build the TIMO team hut and houses in the villages.

Then the exciting news is that African Inland Mission (AIM) has interviewed and found 2 single women that are seriously thinking about joining our TIMO team.

Please pray for God to provide other single ladies and couples to join our team.
