Last week

Thank you so much for lifting me up in prayer. My trip to Mozambique went very well, and I praise God! 


I took a new monthly medication before I left and it seemed that my head pain was far more manageable during this last month, which included my time in Mozambique!

Spending sweet time with my missionary colleagues and kids in Maputo!

Visiting and sharing with the church in Mavalane.


At the CLC bookstore in the Maputo Biblical and Theological Seminary with Abel, who does a wonderful work with youth in Kongoloti, purchasing Portuguese Bibles for some of my Mozambican brothers and sisters.

A special time of prayer and sharing with Anabela's family. 

My little namesake, Aimee, turns 4 this month!

I submitted my documents for the renewal of my yearly visa, and I was able to apply for the 5-year visa. Please pray for God's will in these processes.

I praise God for His goodness and faithfulness and I thank you for your prayer!

Inhambane


We visited with the women in Cala. As we walked the paths together, I was able to listen to Ermelinda and share with her with the story of Joseph's life as an example of faithfully following God through many difficulties.

Fellow missionary, Courtney, and two of our Mozambican sisters from Maputo, Vitoria and Luisa, helped me in the house and on our visits. I was thankful for meaningful conversations, times of sharing from God's word and praying together. 

We stayed at the house in Quissico, where I was happy to see several of my neighbors and especially a young boy named Dilercio, who I used to help with his English homework. I was glad to hear how he's doing and to have the opportunity to pray for him there on the path in front of my house.  

The plumeria plant in my garden that looked dead when I left has bloomed and multiplied!


"See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the early and latter rains."

James 5:7


Thank you for your prayer!

Mozambique Trip

What a privilege it is to be a part of God's eternal work where ever we are in His world! Thank you for praying for His eternal work here in Mozambique.

My team and our Mozambican counselors.


Praying for our missionary sister, Michelle, as she returns to England after serving here in Mozambique these last 3 years.

It's been a blessing to join her in pray and support from a distance. Please pray for God's hand on her life as she continues to be a part of His eternal work back in England.


A special visit with the Njango family as they faithfully serve in Kongoloti.

It's been a joy to visit some of our church groups here to encourage my Mozambican brothers and sisters in Christ.

Would you please pray for my trip to Inhambane this week, that God will guide, provide, and be glorified in all that I am, all that I do, and all that I speak. 

Thank you!

Thank you so much for your support throughout this time. I will be able to seek renewal of my Mozambican visa again this year. 


I would greatly appreciate prayer as I travel to Mozambique from August 15 - September 5.


I continue to trust in God's higher thoughts and ways for all that He is doing. 

"Be of good cheer! It is I (Jesus); do not be afraid."

Share your Story

I'm so grateful for everyone who faithfully prays and partners with me as I live my life for Jesus.

Much loved Leonard and Norma Jean have supported me for many years. Leonard is now with Jesus, and at his memorial his church showed a short video with his story.   


I hope Leonard's story encourages you, and I hope you share your story to encourage others!


"I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you."

Words from the mouth of God

My mom's cat likes to be where I am, and usually right in the middle of what I'm doing. 

While reading my Bible on my lap, here he is embracing the Scripture...


I could not make it through this time without God's daily words for me. They are truth and life and they are for all of us. 


"Because of the Lord's great love 
we are not consumed, 
for His compassion never fails. 
It is new every morning; 
great is His faithfulness." 
Lamentations 3:22-23 


"Now for a little while, if need be, 
you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 
1 Peter 1:6-7


"In all their affliction He was afflicted..."
Isaiah 63:9


"My sisters and brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
As you know, we count as blessed those who persevered. 
You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. 
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy." 
James 5:10-11


"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, 
for He who promised is faithful."
Hebrews 10:23



"Wait on the Lord; 
Be of good courage,
And He will strengthen you heart; 
Wait, I say, on the LORD!"
Psalm 27:14
