Cape Town

Posted on Updated on

No place I’ve ever been matches the rugged beauty of the mountains meeting the crashing waves of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans here in the Cape Town area.  Cathy and I have come here once again to lead a couple of conferences.  A team from our church back home arrives today for a week of work in one of the townships.

Cathy finishes up tonight with the Women’s Conference and I begin in earnest tomorrow.  She will have taught six sessions in two days!  I will preach tomorrow in a township populated by over one million people in an area about twenty miles square!  Yet great work for the gospel continues to grow out of such trying conditions as year after year more churches are founded and ministries are established for the sake of Christ.

I will be joining a team of Korean leaders here who oversee the labors of 60-75 Ethiopian church planters doing an amazing work among refugees from their home land.  George Tissiere and I will take part in a three-day teaching/training conference for these pastors , each speaking 6-7 times.  In doing so, we get to enjoy the honor of lending our efforts to support the work of Larry Warren and Caleb Davison of Leadership International who are partnered with Young Ohm and his team of Korean pastors.

So please pray for our time to be profitable…as they learn from us, and certainly as we learn from them!  Their ministry is amazing!  God’s Word anchors our hearts together as we exalt and glorify Christ together.

Look for more updates when we get back, but for now just take a look at a sample of the creative majesty of God’s craftsmanship in this extraordinary land!_dsc4950
