Anthony & Shawna Myers Newsletter (Winter 2024)

Greeting Family and Friends!

Christmas was a blessed time to be together as a family. We are thankful for Anthony’s parents’ hosting the whole group, as we had everyone staying with them a few different times. It was great to have them spend time with their great-grandchildren also. Speaking of, we will be grandparents again as Brandon and Brooke are due to have a daughter in June. We were able to spend a long weekend in PA for Anthony’s birthday. Darin drove over from Geneva to surprise his dad (and mom)! Grandma had fun making a birthday cake with Sophia for Papa. We are looking forward to visits from the kids in March, and Anthony’s parents will be here in April. My niece and her family will be coming in February for the first time too! We love having visitors and being able to share what we do here. 

We have a new adopted son...well not in the way you think, but when new students come to the Sojourner school, we have staff “adopt” them so they feel like they have a home away from home. Isaiah is from Colorado. We do not take the place of his parents, but he will be able to come on his free weekends, do his laundry, or just come by for a meal. It is also a great opportunity to feed into the lives of these young people spiritually.

December was a busy month overseas as we had 14 Boot Camps working with 1200 national young people in Uganda (2), South Africa (1), Zambia (4), Tanzania (3), Honduras (2), and Australia (1). These teams were completed in January and the young people are back home. Pray that they will be able to grow in the Lord and use what they learned by blessing others. The next set of Boot Camps will be in April/May and will include Zambia (2), and 3 other sensitive locations in Asia. The remainder of the Boot Camps will be this summer with Cameroon, Madagascar (2), Malawi (4), Philippines (2), Asia (6) and the US. We appreciate prayer for the preparations, set up, leaders and team members for these Boot Camps. We are training young people to minister in their own countries and serve others. 

We have around 13 volunteers here from January to March helping us get ready for the US teams, Mud Run and doing whatever projects are needed. The ladies are sorting shirts, sewing puppets and bottling Calmoseptine cream to go overseas. The gentlemen are helping Anthony by doing various jobs outside and making benches for our conference center. We really appreciate the time they put in to help the ministry and certainly enjoy the fellowship. 

We can hardly believe that Darin will soon be done with his junior year at Geneva. This summer, he has accepted an internship with an accounting firm in Orlando that works with nonprofits, which is a real blessing. He will be able to live at home for the summer and commute, which will save him some money. He also plans to work there after graduating, so we are thankful that the Lord has opened this door for him. Pray that He will lead us to the right car for Darin as he will need something dependable to drive to Orlando each day.

Anthony had another iron infusion recently and is being switched to a different Crohn’s medicine. Each time that he goes in to get the infusion, he is able to share with the people there. Most of them are getting chemo or other treatments for cancer, which makes us thankful he is just in there for iron. He has had opportunities to share the Lord and pray with people; a ministry of its own. He has also been doing some large projects at home including redoing the ceilings.

In 2021 we led a summer team to our South Africa base. This December, they were able to run a Boot Camp with 22 leaders and 69 team members on four teams! Here are a couple of testimonies of how the Lord worked in two team members’ lives. 

Nthabiseng is aged 13 and is from around Gauteng Province.  She came to BC and gave her life to the Lord Jesus Christ. She was in the line of being a Songoma (witch doctor). She has grown up with that in mind and is awaiting the final initiation when she reaches age 20. She heard Christ preached for two nights during the rally and two messages mentioned Jesus as the King of Kings and Healer of all diseases. Her “calling” as a Songoma has to do with giving people medicine for healing all sorts of ailments and she was struck at the fact that there was one God who could heal all our diseases. She came up for prayer and was led to the Lord Jesus Christ. We continue praying for her for the Lord to touch her and lead her into all truth. Also, when she goes home she will be strong to follow the King of Kings and Great Healer. 

Greetings in the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Here is testimony from (MAT) Matlhatsi. When he was young, his mother was killed by his father. This left him traumatized and pushed him to drugs. He was homeless and no one could help him. He was brought to camp while on depression drugs. He normally avoids being with people, but with time he got involved with camp he was eager to join every activity. He received Christ during camp and this has helped him so much. The change was noticeable even by his social worker assigned to him and they could not believe what a healthy and happy young man he has become. 

Please be sure to read the story on the back about a grandmother (Agogo) in Malawi, Africa, who was helped by the finances from a past Mud Run. This story can be multiplied many times as to how the Lord is using the staff and students at our 32 bases and Rescue Units overseas, because of your prayers and giving.

This summer we are scheduled to be here on Summer Staff, keeping in contact with the teams and bases overseas, and ministering to the teams as we run two Debriefs when they return. At this time, there are over 200 young people registered and it is only February! Thank you so much for your prayers and giving so we can be a part of the ministry here and around the world.
