Home Sweet Home Final Update

{jcomments on}We have been sending out regular updates regarding our campaign to purchase a home of our very own, here in South Africa.  It has been an amazing journey to see God provide the finances needed for the home.  We were so blessed by all who donated, prayed and wrote us notes of encouragement!

Unfortunately, in seeking to obtain financing for the remaining amount here in South Africa, we have been turned down. At this point we will not be able to purchase. We have gone to multiple banks and appealed multiple decisions to executive leadership.  This has been sad for us as every thing else came together so well with sufficient funds for a large down payment.  We have contacted all those who donated towards this designated project to let them know of their options with their donation.

Thank you again to all who prayed!  We trust that the door will still open in the future and that His timing is perfect for our family.  Please continue to pray for us as we begin to look for a new rental.

In the midst of this… life continues to move forward!

  • We welcomed 40 new students from South Africa and around the world!
  • Five outreach teams are currently working into South Africa from our campus.
  • Chris leaves this week for a 3-week trip to the States.  He will be speaking at YWAM Salem, YWAM Montana as well as two churches.
  • Chris has been blogging regularly and if haven’t checked it out you should!  Find it here.
  • This month, Garett turned 7 as well as started 1st Grade and Thabo started Kindergarten! 

We hope you have had a great start to the New Year, great things are ahead.
