Ready to Go!

In October 2014, I will leave the United States for Africa!  The Lord has been preparing me to relocate to South Sudan for a couple years and I am very excited to embark on this new journey.  My first year will be devoted to learning the language and the culture.  I will be living with a South Sudanese couple, Aciec and Awek, and their three children.  Follow this link to meet Awek:  http://everyvillage.org/radioClick on the video and meet my host sister!  
 
A language teacher will work with me my first year and after twelve months, I should be fluent in Dinka!  Then, God willing, I will venture West to an unreached area of Northern Bahr el Ghazal, South Sudan.

Thank you so much for your partnership in the ministry.  Without you, I wouldn't be going to South Sudan.  Thank you for being a part of the mission, and sending me into the harvest field!
 
Please pray for:
 

  • These last few months as I wrap up real estate transactions, sell my home and prepare to move
  • My language learning.  That I may learn Dinka quickly and become competent to share the truths of the Gospel
  • Political stability in South Sudan
  • Wisdom and knowledge in ministry and how best to serve the Dinka
  • Health and stamina in the hot temperatures
  • A servant's heart

 
Luke 10:2 "He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."

In Christ,
