A New Sister


Exciting news! Last week we met for a study with one of the local followers here in a coffee shop. We invited the barista there to join us and she did. We were all able to share with her and she is now a follower!! She even came to the service Sunday morning!! We ask for continued prayers for this new sister. 

We have now moved on to the next town and ask for your prayers through this new adjustment.

Learning while helping

Spent the past week helping Lobatse Baptist Church prep for a women's conference! We got to help cook, clean, cut firewood, and help slaughter a cow! We learned a lot about how the Batswana cook and do things traditionally. Then we topped off the week by camping in the Kalahari!
