Cool Spring Volunteer Team

We arrived back to Botswana on September 3 and hit the ground running. We had a volunteer team from Cool Spring Baptist arrive just a few days after we did and had such a great time with them amidst all of our jet lag. They began by teaching an all day conference to pastors, leaders, and elders on "Preventing Ministry Failure" which was written by one of the team members-Brad Hoffmann. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the topic and he shared how to have the right foundations in ministry.

Cool Spring Baptist has agreed to partner with us to reach the village of Ditshewagne which is about 2 hours from our city. This village had no evangelical presence, but in June the first church was planted there. This was the first time they were able to see the church meeting together under the tree. They were able to do evangelism in the village and saw many people come to the know the Lord. We are thankful for the missions heart of this church to reach the nations!

  1. Thanks for serving the Lord there. I found your blog about a year ago as it was pushed out through an IMB prayer resource. I have enjoyed reading about your family and how you serve the Lord there. My wife and I have 4 children ages 2-8 and it is amazing/crazy to see how God is working in and through your family. Keep serving him where he has you and know that many are praying for you that you don't even know.
