Personal Greeting

1Peter 2.9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” How peculiar we each are.  God loves us all very much. We have no idea what God will do with foot prints we leave on the lives of others.  Day by day my life in Namibia can seem overwhelming.  However, I am reminded that God is the God of little things.  With His hands covering mine I persevere.  Remaining grateful for the plans God has for me and this ministry in Namibia it is my prayer that I will live my life in full knowledge of His mercy.  One child at a time you and I are leaving a foot print on the life of others.  Thank you for your continued love and sacrifice.  Our blessings come from above.
