It was a Sunday in July of this year. We were in our normal Sunday service and there was an intensive war with big artilleries and helicopter was hovering over us.
God has definitely given ITMI’s Paul and Molly more than they can handle! Paul and Molly are raising, educating and providing for 23 children. On a missionary pastor’s income. In the slums of India. Yeah, that’s more than they can handle. And God keeps using it to point to His goodness and tender care for these most treasured girls.
ITMI partner, Charl van Wyk, his friend and ministry partner, Cozmore, and the other believers ministering in Stone Hill, an impoverished squatters’ camp outside Cape Town, South Africa, arranged for 20 young boys from the settlement to go to a camp last summer. Their response to the camp was…
A gruff voice announced, “Surprise inspection!” as a government official pounded on the door of the home where Paul and Molly’s girls live in Southern India.
We all want to matter. To know we count. “Am I important?” we are asking. These questions are more intense for the lower castes in Indian society. The caste system tells them they don’t matter, and nothing they can ever do will change that.
It’s exhilarating to see something great accomplished. Especially when that something is a big endeavor, the kind only God can pull off. The kind that truly makes the world a better place. And that’s what makes today’s news such cause for celebration.
Recently, they took 20 of the young men from Stone Hill to a church-owned camping facility. “The excitement was almost too much for them…”
Fifteen to twenty youth sat cross-legged on the floor of a Polish home on a Friday night. Most leaned back on whatever was behind them. A wall, a furnace, a futon. They gathered to pray, worship, learn God’s story and fellowship.
ITMI partner, Charl van Wyk, has given his life to this cause. He teaches and preaches the Gospel all over Africa, evangelizing and discipling God’s people and those who haven’t yet joined the family of God.He’s published books. He’s done exegesis on his culture. He’s lectured. He’s preached. He’s gotten his hands dirty. His life has been threatened. Here are three incredible opportunities to partner with Charl to see the good news reach Africans with the life-changing message.
Thank you for carrying these burdens with us! Paul had a huddle with our oldest girls yesterday (9,10 and 11). They are asking many questions about their births now.
