2015 and beyond

Posted by Mark and Andi Labuschagne on Saturday, December 19, 2015
What an incredible year 2015 has been, in fact, we have seen our Father prove Himself to us in ways that we could not have imagined. His love for us, was based on who He is and not on anything that we have done and for this we are extremely grateful, for no one ever loved us more than this and to see it demonstrated in our lives, is something we cannot even put into words.

We got to travel to a number of different countries this year and to different towns and cities and saw our Father touch the hearts and lives of those we were sent too. We travelled extensively throughout South Africa, covering all nine provinces and not only got to meet some amazing people, but saw the beauty of the country as we traveled. 

Leaving Botswana was difficult for us as we really felt devastated by the BW Government's decision not to extend our permits, but in the end, we accepted that God was up to something and we simply submitted to His divine purpose in our lives. It was at this time when we saw the Lord's provision manifest in our day. We saw how God opened doors where there were none and how He continued to direct our paths, even when we did not know it, He was there all the time. We love being lead by the Spirit of God, such an amazing journey.

Andi and I got to spend some time with Carey before she left for Qatar where the two of them now live. Matthew, our son-in-law was blessed to get an amazing work opportunity so so they were able to set up home and quite frankly to see them blessed in this way, makes us as parents very happy and thankful once again to see the hand of the Lord move in the way that He has, in their lives. 

Ryan, our son and Chantal, his finance, continue on the road the Lord has set before them and we are proud of both of them. Hearts continue to be formed and shaped into the very purpose of God and we can see the Lord is up to something amazing in them. Ryan continues to develop his skills and enjoys the work he does. As sales manager of a car hifi fitment center, we have seen his artistry at work and remain extremely proud of our son.

Many people were healed, delivered and set free this year as the ministry continued to move forward, sometimes slower than we sometimes hoped for, but our confidence remained in the Lord and we know the year ahead is going to produce more Christ opportunities than we have seen in previous years and this really motivates our hearts. Running our race until we reach the finish post is the  part of our lives and ministry that remains our number one goal and purpose, for we know in Christ, we will finish stronger than we started.

I am overjoyed by the number of salvations this year and to see the lasting mark Jesus has made on every heart we got to share the Good News with. His grace is something that simply astounds us and we have learnt, we do not need to be anything more than the Christ in us to see people's lives touched and changed by the power of the blessed Holy Spirit.

Too all our friends that continue to stand by us, supporting the purpose of God in us, we are eternally grateful for everyone of you. Your love has blessed Andi and I in such amazing ways and we can only give God all the glory for all that He continues to do through you. Our prayer is that 2016 will be a transforming year for all of you and that the manifestation of His favor will reach into areas of your lives and that of your families in ways that you all least expected it.

Grace, peace and much love to you all in Jesus name

Our love for our Father

Mark Labuschagne We are a vessel set apart, cleansed, emptied, consecrated; just standing, waiting every moment for God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to work out in us as much of the holiness and the life of His Son as pleases Him We worship Him only!
