We are excited to have three teenagers from Lake City CRC come and serve with us the next six weeks. Jimmy, Autumn, and Zipporah (known as Zephie) (the two girls are sisters) love the Lord and desire to serve Him in missions. All three of them come from non Christian homes and were saved through the love of Lake City CRC’s youth group. Their testimonies are powerful examples of God’s grace. We have already seen maturity in their faith as they share with others what Jesus did for them. Lake City CRC, especially their youth leader Nathan, has encouraged and supported Jimmy, Autumn and Zephie as they prepared to come. Everyone is excited for them! Jimmy will mostly be with Josh, seeing what it is like to be a missionary. He will go with him when he teaches, does discipleship, farms, and everything in between. The girls will mainly be helping with home schooling Lydia and Grace. Of course they will also be involved in our church and with our team.
Pray for Jimmy, Autumn, Zephie, and our family as we live and do ministry together the next six weeks
Pray for their travel. None of them have never flown before so going to Uganda for their first flight is a big trip. They leave May 29 and arrive May 30.
Pray for good health while they are here.
One of the things we feel God will use while the teens are here is just being a part of our family. It will be the first time any of them have lived in a Christian home and seen a Christian marriage and family. We pray God uses us as an example of all He desires for His children.
Pray for Autumn and Zephie as they teach Lydia and Grace.
Pray for Jimmy and Josh as they work together.
Thank God for Lake City CRC and their love and discipleship to these teens.
We pray God will continue to grow in each one of these teens and uses them in His kingdom work around the world.
On a side note, our work and residence permits are supposed to be ready this week. Josh plans to pick them up Friday morning when he gets the three young people. Please pray that they are ready as promised. What an answer to prayer!
