Providence Team

The largest group of white people ever came to evangelize in Palapye. It was great having a team from my home church come. They got to meet and fall in love with the people here just as I have. It was an amazing time where over 500 children came and heard the message of Jesus Christ.
The group was able to pray walk and get to now the leaders in the church as well as work with them. The abstinence talks

went well and a lot of the youth were very receptive to the message. Please pray for the follow up that will need to take place as the team leaves. I also have a little over a month before I leave for the US and would appreciate your prayers for meaningful goodbyes. It is going to be hard for me to transition back into the US from the village life. I have worked hard building lasting relationships here and it will hard to leave as part of my heart will always be in Palapye, Botswana.

4th of July

For the 4th of July we had the awesome privilege of being invited to an Embassy party. It was neat being around other Americans and having a cookout it almost felt like home. The food was overpriced and they even had cake walks just like home. We also had beautiful weather despite it being cold all week. While we were down in Gaborone we also got to go see “Bye Bye Birdie” which was pretty funny especially when they tried to do a Spanish dance. The production of the “The Number One Detective Agency,” has begun and it is being filmed here in Botswana! Unfortunately the led actress is an American but they are bringing in jobs for people here which is great. It should be coming out at the end of the year! So read the books if you have not so you will be ready for the movie.

Pray for the team from Providence as they will be arriving the 13th of July and working until the 22nd.
