As many of you know we often find ourselves serving pastors and churches in the Indian areas around Durban. I cannot thank Jesus enough for the many open doors He has provided in these amazing communities. We were greatly encouraged while recently working with a church in the Claire Estate section of Durban. They were not only hungry for the word in the message but they also had an aggressive plan to share Christ in their community. After reflecting on our time and conversation I was impressed with Hebrews 13: 7-14 (NASB) which says,
The burden of Christ was never reserved for a select few, as scripture plainly tells us that He loved the entire world. To often the Church today sits in a “camp” of comfort zones that reproduce the same religiously exclusive culture that Jesus openly despised. We are praying for every church, ministry and individual believer that we are associated with to hear His voice and go “outside the camp” to show Christ’s love!
Over the next two weeks, we will have a set of meetings in Durban with a number of churches and then host another missionary from Capetown. After this, please pray for our upcoming trip to Brazil and the USA. We will be gone for nearly 10 weeks and we would really covet your prayers concerning the many expenses and details associated with the travel. Please also pray that we will be able to raise the funds for a new vehicle. This is our most pressing need in the ministry.
Blessings in Christ Jesus……………..Rodney, Trina, Bridget
