One of our partnering churches, Cool Spring Baptist Church in Virginia, has been to Botswana many times. They have sent so many different types of teams, but this time 2 families decided to join our family for ministry and to walk through everyday life with us. It means so much to the people here in Botswana when people came to share Jesus, but the fact that these whole families came made a huge impact.
This church has been helpful in starting a church in the village of Ditshegwane, so of course we wanted them to go out and be a part of that ministry. We also had them working in the village of Molepolole with Molepolole Baptist Church in building of a playground in hopes of reopening an Orphan Care Center through this church and also doing a children's ministry program in the afternoons. God certainly used these families to bring HIM glory.
