No Longer Night

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 2/21/11

Going back to the North of Mozambique from South Africa after our furlough, takes us on a 5-day car journey. And usually quite exciting driving too! Dodging huge potholes for hours, driving alongside the “road” for many kilometers, seeing buses and taxi’s filled to maximum capacity and usually topped with some goats makes for lots of entertainment. The picture was taken where we slept over at the coast. Although we live far from the ocean, there is only one road going north, which follows the coast about half of the way of our journey. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and sunset – Africa in rich colors!

Here we are busy studying the local language and are working towards church planting amongst a least reached people group. We work with SIM and have been in the village for 2 years now. We have 3 children which we homeschool. We live very isolated with our closest missionary neighbors 4 km away and other friends 1 1/2 hours away. Our closest town is 75km from here. It is good to be in contact with others that work cross-cultural through WOTH! Although it is not easy to live way out in the bush, we realize daily just how much in need of a Savior the people around us are! Jesus truly is the only Hope!"
