Do you have a bucket list?  Is there somewhere out there that you long to discover and experience?

My husband Sam and I love to travel. We discovered a fulfilling travel adventure through serving on a mission project many years ago. It was an eye opening, thrilling, fulfilling and life changing experience.

When the opportunity presented itself, we had so many questions. How can we afford this?  Is it safe?  Is it worthwhile?  Who will take care of our children, while we are away? It took a leap of faith and a change in mindset. This sums up my wish for you. “I am learning more and more each day to ‘walk by faith and not by sight’…I pray that in all I do I can inspire others to do the same because God wants to make the impossible, possible in your life”

We are currently here in South Africa serving the Hope of Glory Ministries in Lefatlheng, Mathibestad.

It is a rural area located 77km north of Pretoria. Hope of Glory Ministries develops orphans and at-risk kids spiritually, mentally and physically to help create a better South Africa! Due to the pandemic of HIV/AIDS and poverty there has been a tremendous increase in teenage pregnancies, child and grandmother heads of households in the town of Mathibestad.

We have joined hands with Hope of Glory Ministries, indigenous African Professionals, business owners and volunteers to offer HOPE through:

1. Construction of  “Hope of Glory Ministries” Children Life Center which will  provide  housing and classrooms for up to 200 children

2. Installation  of twenty-five vegetable tunnels  (green houses) to serve the children and the community

3. Multipurpose facility and Development Center

4. Water well and Tanks

5. Internet Cafe (for students and the local community)  for more information

We plan to continue to volunteer and give sweat capital to this effort. We are so grateful to all the people who supported us on this adventure. Support through prayer and financially, Thank you, Thank you!
It has been a different experience being in South Africa during the Christmas season.

In the video below the children wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a blessed 2015!

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou
