Women with Purpose Anniversary

Women with Purpose ministry celebrates its anniversary!

The women gathered in the morning to start the day with a soccer game.

Some played.

And some watched.

An excited goalie.

Then there was the potato sack race...

...which brought some smiles.

...and then some laughter.

Then we gathered to sing.

And study the Bible.

We had a special time of prayer.

And praise.

Mother and daughter.

Four special young ladies from the youth group made a wonderful lunch.

I have been working with the leadership group of this ministry. 

As I move to serve in the province of Inhambane, would you please pray for the leaders: 
Amelia, Alda, Maria, and Isabel (who was ill this day).

Women with Purpose
II Timothy 1:9
"He has saved us and called us to a holy life, not because of our works, but because of His own purpose and grace, which He gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began."

African Animals

My mom and I took a day off to visit nearby Kruger National Park to see the animals.

Elephants crossing the Sabie River


Cape Buffalo

Sleeping in the shade of family

Guinea Fowl


Chacma Baboon

We decided to make up our own proverbs and sayings for some of the animals we saw...

The lion has sharp teeth...

...but the bird has wings.

Admire the rhino's horn from afar.

To a zebra, everything is black and white.

Don't trust the stillness of a crocodile.

Even the fierce lion needs shade.

A giraffe may not be as fast as a cheetah, but he has a better view.

A hippo never strays too far from his water hole.

If there were fewer impala, we would stop to admire them more.

Safety in numbers means nothing to a leopard.

To the male warthog, the female warthog is beautiful.
