Pennsylvania and New Jersey

These last two weeks I've been sharing with special partners in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

I don't have pictures of everyone and every place, but these are a few that represent my gratitude for all of you!



There are twelve people who have committed to faithfully pray for me on a daily basis, and this is one of them...my Aunt Faith, from Allentown, PA. Thank you to all of my daily prayer partners, I so appreciate each of you!   



Besides being prayed for, I've also been fed...a lot!  From giant steaks...to unexpected sushi...to Freddy's famous hot wings :)  



After speaking at the Portuguese Evangelical church in Bethlehem, PA, the lovely ladies invited me to share with their Bible study prayer group.



Speaking in the Brazilian Evangelical church in Cliffside Park, New Jersey.



The children at this church each got a Mozambican beaded bookmark to help them remember to pray for God's work in Mozambique :)  



Sharing with the Sunday school group at Bethany Church in Wescosville, PA.


Several years ago, this church raised funds for their new building, and they tithed their building fund...  



...toward the building of the Maputo Biblical and Theological Seminary in Mozambique.

What a beautiful example of obedience in tithing that shows God's provision and multiplication, so that not only 1 building could be built...but 2! 


During these next two weeks I'm heading to West Virginia and back into Pennsylvania. 

I appreciate your prayer as I continue to travel and share :)

A Car and Ohio

Thank you for praying for me in regards to a vehicle that I could use for traveling and speaking in the Northeastern US! 

I was blessed to be able to get a rental car with the help of my surfing partner...



...my Dad.

Thank you Dad.


These weeks are now filled with much driving, speaking, and staying in different homes.




I've been in Ohio this last week taking part in 3 OMS Coming to You events in 3 towns.  People from different churches in these towns were invited to come and hear about the need for Christ in the world, how we can respond to that need, and specifically how I'm responding to it in Mozambique, Africa.   



I stayed in the homes of some very dear people, and it was a joy to share with this home group :)



I've been thankful to visit with my supportive church partners here in Ohio! 

Now I'm headed to Pennsylvania...
