Personal Greeting

I came back to my office after visiting a classroom and there on my desk was a violet and a note –  a gift from God delivered by one of His children.  Friends who must have been passing through on their way to the coast or back inland came to encourage me with God’s word!  At times like this I am so encouraged by how God uses His people to strengthen, remind and just plain bless me. On a daily basis I am reassured that my ministry partners are praying for all that God is doing through His people here in Namibia!  I thank God for you and your commitment in love, prayer and finances!

What’s Next

Specific Needs

God’s mercy and grace to go before Sylvia as she prepares for her knee operations.

May our children come to recognize the importance of education.

As we continue in foster care and education may the team of individuals on the ground in Namibia remain faithful and in unity.

Ms. Brenda(as she is known at TKCA) needs wisdom as she leads the TKCA staff.

Pray for Ms. Sylvia to have wisdom as she leads the ministry even from afar.

As Teacher Raymond continues to learn may God bless him and give him a peace beyond understanding.

May God provide protection over Salome and Dennis who are schooling away from family and the support of CoPMN.

We need sponsors for tuition for approximately 20 CoPMN students attending TKCA.

My family sends love from Namibia. Brenda
