Andi and I will be driving up to Upington, NC on Saturday and look forward to our time of ministry in the area. We hear the road is being resurfaced and that there are many stop and go signs along the way. South Africa is in the process of rebuilding many of its national roads and although this is rather unpleasant when driving along these roads, it is absolutely necessary that it be done.
This morning as I sit in His presence, I am overwhelmed at the opportunity we have been given to be able to share His love with people in the way we get to do. I remain ever aware of the fact that it has and always will remain about Jesus and it is with this in mind that we prepare to go. Our heart is that He will pour out His glory in this cities and that the hearts of those who love Him will be touched by the fire of His holiness.
I never take Jesus grace for granted, and remain eternally grateful for all that Jesus has done in our hearts. So as we go, we look forward to some great times in the car, and look forward to sharing His love with those we will be privileged to minister to. We can testify over and over again to the miracle working power of our God in our lives and the ministry He has entrusted us with.
We remain amazed as we see His faithfulness manifesting in every area of our lives and even the times that we travel, how our Father faithfully provides in all our needs. Friend, today, we want to encourage you to look to Jesus, to stand on His word and to worship Him in spirit and in truth. In doing so, the goodness of God is soon realized in the hearts of those who believe. So, having done all else, we STAND, believe and trust in His word.
We ask the you continue to pray for these meetings as we look forward to a mighty outpouring of grace upon the peoples of this area. We will be ministering at the AFM, with Ps Derrick Grobelaar until Wednesday evening (hoping to be able to extend these meetings), and if the Lord does not change our plans, we will then be ministering at Roepersfontein, with Ps Neels Voster through to the Sunday evening, May 12th.
We also want you to know that we live by faith, and trust the Lord for the manifestation of glory in our hearts and this wherever we find ourselves. Thank you our friends for the kindness you have continued to show towards us, we honor the Jesus in you.
This is the day of the Lord, and we shall rejoice in Him and be glad.
