What an amazing year

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, December 18, 2016
We were so blessed to be able to see God move in our hearts and the lives of those we were sent to this year. God's grace continues to draw the hearts of many across the globe and we are honored to be part of what Holy Spirit is doing across the face of the earth at this time.

We have traveled to numerous countries this year and have seen countless give their lives to the Jesus. We have seen families restored, sickness flee, marriages healed, people delivered and so much more that we simply want to say, thank you Jesus for the opportunity to serve your people in this way.

2016 saw us embarked on the Encourage USA tour. +- 12000 miles, 31 states, from corner to corner, north and south all in one amazing tour. People received us in such an incredible way and we were blessed to be a blessing to everyone we got to meet and to those we were privileged to minister to. From our home church in Branson, MO, we got to share the word of God, present a prophetic school and just enjoy a time of fellowship with our US "Church Family". 

Of course, this was also the 2016 election season and what a season it was. I prophesied last year that Donald Trump would be the 45th President of the USA and as we watched on many occasion, we saw God do amazing things as the road to the White House was prepared in such a spectacular manner.

I have never seen one man experience so much nastiness and hatred (Even from the Church) as Mr Trump has had to endure, but in the end, the victory that was handed to him, was the best reward ever. He continues to face much opposition and God continues to protect and cover him from every attempt of the enemy (Both naturally and spiritually), causing him to see the hand of God in an amazing way.

Following our return to South Africa, we were back home for a week before we returned to Botswana, and specifically Maun, where we started building our ministry campus. We are so excited about this project and although it has been a little slower than I would have liked, we have seen God move in such an amazing way. The entire project is a step of faith and to see brick by brick go in, really stirs my heart. We hope to get the house completed as soon as possible and then to go on with the distribution center, the manager's apartment and the ministry accommodation center.

We are also hoping to raise P60000.00 (Pula) approximately $5600 (USD) to be able to purchase the property next door. Here we are hoping to build our training center which will be used to serve the local community in every which way. Pastor Gideon Modise (Senior Pastor of the AFM Maun) is overseeing the project and what an awesome blessing our friends are. We wish to also thank you our partners for your continued love and support and thank the Lord for timely provision, for without it, we would never be able to do what we have in such a short space of time. 

I will be flying to Doha this week to be with Andi, who is with Carey, our daughter and awesome son-in-law, Matthew who are expecting little Arabella any day now. So, we hopefully go into 2017 with our first grand baby as grandparents and look forward to every minute we will be able to spend with her.

Friends, thank you for your faithful prayers this year, you have and continue to be an amazing blessing to us. May you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a prosperous New Year.

God bless you all

Our love for our Father
