It’s been a wonderful day in Johannesburg. Our team attended church with the Kraybills at Grace Baptist Church. It’s a smaller congregation with a big heart for others.
Rod introduced Pastor Joe to the congregation, who challenged the church with a message from Acts 2.
I was invited to join the worship team as a vocalist.
After service we attended a luncheon sponsored by the Caring Ministry (Lori is one of the leaders). This ministry does outreach by giving food parcels & donated clothing to those who have come to South Africa seeking a better life but are still struggling.
I met the Mabee family who have emigrated from Zimbabwe.
He is a trained security officer but has not found a job in this field, and he is supporting his wife and 2 sons, ages 6 and 2, by doing odd jobs. This family has been blessed by the gifts of the Caring Ministry. It was a joy to hear their story and realize how the church is ministering to them.
Thank you for your prayers for our team and our time with Rod and Lori. We’ve gotten to know them on a deeper level and learn more specifics of how God is using them in missions.
Beth, for the team
