Our Race

Our Race

As I look at the picture above I rejoice in the family God has given me. My precious family, the treasure that God has placed in my hands to guide and disciple. Please keep them in your prayers as they grow. Tanya in now 16 and starting to think about college. She has many choices to make in the next year or two. We are hoping to get her started with classes over the internet and at least let her get some basics finished. Christy is 13 and loves life. She has a servants heart and can be counted on to help whether it is with cookies or cleaning. Josh (9) is starting his personal race. He loves action, mechanics, building, and good stories. Pray that we can guide him into meaningful service for the Lord and that we can help all of them grow in the Lord.

Why We Came
The photo is of Laura Sawyer and Savanna. Savanna is one and is being greeted by Naditari. Naditari is one of only a hand full of local Christian here in Sekenani. She excepted the Lord as her personal Savior back in the late 1980's. Since then her life has been a roller coaster as her husband remarried, then died in the nineties. She has almost died twice with Malaria and Typhoid. She remains a testimony of what God whats to do and can do. Uneducated, she has worked for years to see that every one of her children has had a chance to go to school and has told each one about the Lord. Currently there are two open unbelievers and 4 that attend church regularly. There is reason to question if some of them know the Lord, but this mama keep on praying. I am sure that, she is one of the reasons why God lead us to the Mara to start a church. She remain one of our closest friends. Please keep her in your prayers as well as her family. I know she regularly spends time in prayer for the churches in America that support us and is always interested in praying for the needs of people we know. She might have prayed for you!

It's so nice to put a face and name on who we have prayed for in general, now specifically.
Love, take care,
Jennifer and Jim
