In only 9 days I will be heading to South Africa with a team of 4 people (3 recent high school graduates, a nurse and a math teacher (me)). Please pray for favor as we take 10 bags packed full of donated medical supplies, computers, and crafts for VBS camps. We will be renting and furnishing a house in Malelane, South Africa (near the Mozambique border) and will be using it full time as a ministry house (my cousin Heather, the Executive Director of The Hope of Africa, will be moving there in August for 8 months, so this ministry house will be very useful). I will be able to do lots of tutoring (along with the brilliant high school graduates that will be on the team) and we will be able to host many orphaned and vulnerable youth, providing hands-on parenting, discipleship and mentorship. We also plan to run several days of VBS camps in the village (using our South African teens as leaders at the camps) and hope to also minister to pregnant and new moms and newborn babies as the nurse on our team is a labor & delivery nurse! Praise God for how he has brought this amazing team together! Praying we serve His children well while we are there and bring glory to His name!
Amy (for Kim, Abby, Kacie and Taylor)
