What a month it has been! Since my last update we have seen over 30 salvations, some amazing answers to prayers, and an awesome story of how God continues to provide for this dream He has put on my heart. We had our Jesus Burgers outreach where we hand out free burgers to the homeless and community in Kona while having a two hour worship service going on. At the end of the night we go up and preach the gospel plain and simple! This Jesus Burgers I got the opportunity to share alongside my brother-in-law Seth. As I was praying before I got up I kept asking God to speak through me. I shared two stories that conveyed the heart of God and then Seth came up and brought the simple gospel and when he asked who wanted to respond over 30 HANDS shot straight up in the air! It was a great time and I am so thankful I got to be apart of it! As you all know I have been praying and planning for this trip to South Africa for around six months now. Along with praying for this trip I have been praying for God to open doors in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Well the Lord has answered my prayers and now it is looking like I will be able to connect with Rally International (The ministry in the DR Congo) while I am in South Africa! I am so excited and expectant for this three month trip to South Africa this fall. I am looking to network with leaders there, scout out the land and see the possibility of moving there, and serve the YWAM base that is in Cape Town. God has always been faithful to His words and He always will! I am in awe of His provision these past couple of weeks. From providing money for gas to literally providing money for a deposit on a flight to South Africa as my card is being typed in! (contact me to hear that whole story!) So as I write this update I do it with a full heart of gratitude. I am thankful for God's grace and mercy which I don't deserve and I am thankful for friends and family that champion me and this vision of seeing a prayer room established in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Thank you to everyone who has given towards this dream already and thank you for everyone who is praying for me (it's working!) Here are few needs until my next update, please contact me if you want to talk more!
