We'll make a plan

Dumela from Gaborone!

My name is Cam and I am one of the team leaders for the Bush Boys and Girls. After long flights and layovers starting in Atlanta, we arrived in Gaborone jet lagged and all on June 8th. There was a little bit of a learning curve at first as we learned to walk the streets as we are without vehicles of our own for the next two months.

We have been cooking dinners for ourselves, although finding ingredients has been somewhat difficult. We had to go to three different stores before we found everything for a taco dinner, but nevertheless we figured it out.

There's a saying here in Africa our supervisor likes to use: "We'll make a plan." Whenever we are talking about ministry planning, we have learned that scheduling in Africa is far more different than in the States. Though there is a bit of a learning curve, it has taught us to slow down and pay attention to the Spirit.

Our first week has been full of door to door evangelism. The people of Botswana are very receptive to hearing the Word of God. We have already had a week full of children's ministry as well. The Lord has been gracious in our ministry as several people have already been raised from death to life through the proclamation of the gospel!

Continue to pray for salvations as we continue our ministry!
