Dear Friends, Summer is here! We hope you are enjoying warmer weather. We’d like to share with you an exciting development in our ministry. After two years at home, God is calling us back to the mission field - this time in South Africa! South Africa has been on our hearts for some time. Since 2009, Jack has hoped to study at Stellenbosch University under Dr. Christo van der Merwe, one of the world’s leading Hebrew scholars. God has finally opened this door! He has also provided a missions partner in East Mountain ministries. East Mountain is a community of missionaries equipping pastors and church leaders through theological training, spiritual formation, and community development.

Loren will provide mentoring and counseling with East Mountain. She will continue teaching community health and life skill classes, something she has enjoyed with Living Water, The World Race, and in her current ministry with refugees. We are also dialoguing with The World Race about continuing our work with them by hosting short-term mission teams. We would connect them to local ministries, provide training and discipleship, and help them process their experiences. We are very excited about these new opportunities! We are so thankful for all of you, our community of faith! Your fervent prayers, your generous giving, and your powerful encouragement equip us to serve God’s Kingdom overseas. We ask you to journey with us as we step forward in faith. Would you prayerfully consider supporting our ministry and study in South Africa?
