Pictured above are John and Trish with Cintia and Julius at the Johannesburg Airport before our departure. Our team landed safely following 24 hours of travel from Johannesburg to Atlanta and Atlanta to Phoenix. We want to thank everyone for your wonderful support via notes and prayer support. We had a super week working with our brothers and sisters at Hope Baptist Church. In summary, we were privileged to see at least eleven new believers accept Christ as their Savior. Numerous first time visitors stated they wanted information on membership in Hope Baptist Church. We are excited about the initial growth and excellent potential that God has for the church and how it impacts Sunnyside, South Africa and beyond. Please pray for strength and wisdom for Pastor Julius and his key leadership, including Wilfred, Daniel and David, as well as their families. Pray for understanding and support from their families for the hard work ahead. Pray for the married couples who wish to strengthen their relationship with God by honoring him in their relationships. Pray for the parents, both married and single, who desire to raise their children according to Godly principles. And pray for the singles who love God and desire to live a pure lifestyle. Thank you again for this excellent opportunity to represent the Lord and First Southern Baptist of Scottsdale. May God bless you and our church as we continue to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ!
