Who will stand before God for these people?

God works through believers who come to the throne and never let God rest because they do not keep silent. Isaiah 62:1-7

vs 6-7
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; And give Him no rest until He establishes And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Like Jacob would not let go until he received a blessing, let us pray with the same intensity and give Him no rest.

Sharing the Vision with Friends and Family

We have our prayer cards! SIM sent us our beautiful prayer cards, we are legit! After giving out some of the cards we feel like real missionaries. SIM also sent us our mission video to show to churches. I remember watching missionary slideshows and videos on Sunday nights when I was little and now we are showing our missionary video too. I pray that God uses it to inspire little ones to follow Him wherever He leads.
We are now meeting with friends and family to share what God has done, is doing and will do in Malawi. Every time we talk about the youth evangelism/discipleship soccer outreach we get more excited to go! We are praying that God does mighty things with this ministry, that the fruit be miraculous! God can turn all of Malawi to Himself, just like the Ninevites, and use them to change all of Africa and the world. Pray with us that God will be glorified and worshiped in Malawi. Pray for the Church in Malawi that they follow and obey God completely so that unbelievers turn to Him.

Training for the Journey and beyond

Thank you for joining us on this adventure. We are honored that you choose us to inform you on the amazing things God is doing in and through the Body in Malawi. Luke, Lyzee and I just returned August 2nd from training in North Carolina with Serving In Mission (SIM). This was a time of preparation and encouragement. We were able to meet some amazing women, men and families who love Christ and obey Him without hinderance. After two weeks of living in community with these kindred spirits it's hard not to see them everyday.
August flew by and now it is the busy month of September. This month and the ones to follow will be full of building a support team to take this journey with us. God has placed wonderful, loving people in our life to encourage us and to teach us what it means to live out the Gospel. We strongly believe that because God is and models perfect community within Himself, so we are called to be in community; to encourage, speak truth, and to use our spiritual gifts so that Christ is glorified and all nations will worship Him.
So thank you for holding our family up through your prayers, friendship, and support!
