"By wisdom a house is built,

and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches." ~Proverbs 24:3-4

Whatever you write on the heart of a child,
no water can wash it away.
The marks in the sands are erased by the tide;
inscriptions will crumble with clay.
The words in a book will decay with the years
and even engraving in stone disappears.

But God’s Word inscribed on a little child’s heart

for time and eternity shall not depart.

Home is the focus of the work of homeschooling parents. Perhaps like no other challenge in life, homeschooling forces us to consider our identity and our roles as mothers and fathers, and it allows us to shape every aspect of our home—its tone, the way it’s decorated, the media we allow to enter it, what we eat and how we eat, how we celebrate, how we laugh, how we rest, and how we prepare for the unexpected.

November Thanksgiving!

We are thankful for God’s faithfulness this November. There times in our lives where we are unfaithful in our thinking (2Tim 2:13), but the God in His amazing character gives us Grace for Grace. God has poured out His Grace and Mercy especially this month-end.

College Outreach. 2 weeks ago we had one of the greatest times at the University of Zambia that we ever have had. Normally we do a Bible study at a restaurant on  campus, but the past few weeks we were invited a few feet over to do a Bible study with some young people working at a Photocopy kiosk. Last week the response was amazing. 10 people were there listening intently and we preached two messages: Christ is the Photocopy of the Father (Exact Representation) from Hebrews 1:3 and the 5 barriers that Christ crossed to save us (from an 1990 ABD class by Dr. Stevens). We were amazed with the incredible questions these hungry souls posed. Afterward 3 of them received Christ and we said to them that we are having church right now here in your workplace. We also reconnected with our friend Kwezi after a few months. We are excited to see what God will do.

Car Request Answered. God gave us a car. Praise God, we found a great deal on a car. It was such an answer to prayer. And even to go above and beyond, we registered it in record time (which is much different than the registration in other countries. What normally takes a day at the MVA/DMV takes 3 to 5 days here. We got it done in 2).

The Malawi Front. Pr. Albert(future Malawi team member) and I have a great expectation for our trip to Malawi next month. We made a call to our contacts in Lilongwe, Malawi to let them know we are coming for a few days. Our goal again is to register the Church and pick future locations for the church and team house. 

Thank you so much for your prayers and support, we experience the presence of God in each step we take.
