I have the great opportunity to go to South Africa to work with Jeff and Abby Hunt with Engage Africa, for three months in 2016. Whether in giving, working overseas or working in my own town, it seems like I have been involved in mission work all my life. I support Jeff and Abby’s vision and all that they are doing.

I have had a personal relationship with Jesus since I was a young girl. I love and trust Him to the fullest, and Jesus is my everything. I enjoy doing women’s Bible studies, singing in the church choir, praying for other’s needs and helping deliver food to and running errands for people in our town. I feel blessed to have worked with great churches who support missions. Some of the mission trips I have been on include living and working as a house mother in Thailand for sixteen months, helping in Africa and China on mission trips and many trips to Mexico.

An extended Africa missions trip is something that I have wanted to do for a few years. I know that God is going to use and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.

Hebrews 10: 24-25 says: And let us consider how we can spur on another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the Day coming.

Dumela, my Family and Friends!

It has been an awesome adventure here in South Africa! God is moving a way that makes my heart feel revived. The children here are prayer warriors already. “Pray Until Something Happens” is their slogan. I have heard stories and seen God move in their prayers. I have seen God heal, provide jobs, bring families together on Sundays, and so much more.

The work is not finished. I feel as if I have just started and already have to head home! I would like to return from January - August 2017. Please agree with me as I trust God to raise more funds and continue the journey He has begun in and through me here in South Africa.

Barb will be joining the Engage Africa Team for her second term from February to July 2017. She will be involved in all the different aspects of ministry and doing life in Africa. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Barb in ministry. Please be praying for Barb as she raises her support and prepares herself for this part of her journey.
