Hello friends and family of the South Africa team,

The team has made it through a whole week of living in South Africa. The time has gone fast. The team is in good spirits, they’re excited to be here and excited for all that God has for them. Our team is blessed with so many cheerful attitudes.

The team has been working hard on scraping and painting the dorm ceilings. Mr. Kyle says he thinks the team will finish this initial project very quickly, which will enable the team to do more evangelism and other work projects for the base.

South Africa seems to be a very dark place spiritually. There are a lot of false Gospels. Spiritism, ancestral worship, and cults are also common. The saddest part is that many Christian’s in South Africa mix these different religions in with their Christianity. The darkness seems to be overwhelming this country. Between the breakdown of the family (many single parent homes) and many people caught in addictions, the people of South Africa are hurting and desperately need the true Gospel.

With this huge need on our minds, we’re grateful the team has already been able to do some street evangelism. They performed their drama called “battleground” in a market place. One of Teen Missions staff in South Africa delivered a message afterward proclaiming the Gospel. The team also did an awesome job presenting at a church. We have a team that seems to do very well with the dramas and music. However we’re still working on getting great at puppets hahahaha….

Today was the 4th of July. The team enjoyed a small party and glow sticks. The lady leaders cooked up an American storm. They had bbq pork sandwiches, baked beans, striped sugar cookie bars, and corn. The kids loved the meal and fun was had by all!

“South Africa has been pretty chilly. The people here are friendly and outgoing. I’ve really enjoyed hanging out with the Teen Missions Bible students here. They’re always happy to chat with us and I really enjoy it.” - Nikki

“South Africa has been colder than I thought it would be. But I’m having a lot of fun and the people here are amazing. I had a lot of fun at church yesterday, I enjoyed experiencing how they worship.” - Lydia

As always, we are grateful for your prayers and letters. Thank you for lifting us up every day!

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray that the team will stay healthy and avoid this flu.
  • Please pray for effective evangelism
  • Please pray for the country of South Africa that God’s Holy Spirit would work here in a new way.

We are glad to say that all of our team members arrived safely to the Lord's Boot Camp. Arrival Day went smoothly.

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team.

The team has been busy down here at the Lord's Boot Camp. The team is starting to get into a groove. They enjoy spending time together, laughing and getting to know each other. They seem to be in good spirits, and are truly enjoying Boot Camp. The Leaders are grateful for their chipper attitudes!

The team has been enjoying the final days of Boot Camp

The team has been enjoying the final days of Boot Camp and is looking forward to the Field! They've been reaching new heights, growing together and getting to know one another well. It's been wonderful to see the spiritual growth in each team member. The leaders are appreciative of the several team members that have become leaders among their peers.

All the travel went extremely well!

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team,
All the travel went extremely well! The team handled themselves well in the airport and on the plane. Most of them took advantage of the 15 hour flight and got caught up on some much needed sleep.

Hello family and friends of the South Africa team

The week is nearly finished! The team has been faithfully working on a couple different projects around the base. They have finished painting the ceiling and the rafters. They have now started painting the interior walls of the dorm.

A Fun and Restful Weekend

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team!

We are happy to report that the team is in good spirits and health. We had such a fun and restful weekend.

The project is going well. We’re making great progress with the painting. The kids have been working hard and faithfully digging the latrines and painting. We are looking forward to starting to build new bunk beds for the dorms later this week.

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team!

The team has had a good week! They’ve been putting some solid work into the project. I think they have been encouraged by seeing the progress they’re making.

The painting has been going very well so far. The team has completely finished 2 rooms. The current students have already moved in and are enjoying their freshly painted walls and ceiling.

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team

The team has been busy with a evangelism and work projects! They have made excellent progress on painting rooms. In fact students have already moved into the painted rooms (students pictured below standing in their rooms). The work continues as we paint more rooms and play room shuffle. People moving into the finished rooms so we can paint the rooms they were formerly staying in.

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team!

The team has been hard at work! We’re so excited for how much they have been getting done. We keep thinking we’re close to done painting, then new rooms end up on the list to be painted.

The team has made 17 bunk beds. The team seems to have gotten into a groove and is getting a lot done! They’re spread out around the base doing all sorts of different jobs. From roof patching to painting a mural, the team is working hard. We’re proud of them.

Hello everyone!

The team has been blessed this past weekend with lots of fun outings and adventures.
On Friday our team got to assist the South African staff members butcher chickens. The team members were champs and handled it bravely. Even Miss Lauren slaughtered a chicken! The team helped pluck the chickens, gut them, and get them ready to be frozen for the Bible students to eat later.

We’ve been very blessed to have a few relaxing days of sightseeing!

Hello friends and family of the South Africa team,
We’ve been very blessed to have a few relaxing days of sightseeing! The team enjoyed staying at a Game Reserve Lodge. We were able to do two safaris. The kids and leaders enjoyed seeing impala, elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, wildebeests, mongooses, lions, and warthogs.
