Dear Friends,

In the popular kids movie Madagascar, the lemurs sang a song with the words, “You’ve got to move it, move it. You’ve got to move it, move it.” Well that song has been our modus operandi for the last couple months. We hosted three South African mission interns for for three weeks starting the end of June through mid-July. We drove them back to South Africa where a couple days later, we were off to Togo in West Africa for ten days. We returned to South Africa only to rush home to Inhambane to receive the mission teams coming from the US, Brazil, and South Africa to help host our annual Christian English Camp. They have all left to their respective homes, and we are once again spending a few days in South Africa, but this time to get some rest. The first night after everyone left, Scott slept 10 hours and Lisa over 11! But what an incredible time of ministry to so many. Attached you will find a short commentary, as well as videos which will highlight much of what we have been doing. Our prayer is that you are blessed by what you see and hear as God moves!


Report On Latest Trip To Togo

The end of July, our family traveled to Togo in West Africa. We went on a survey and ministry trip to visit several churches as well as to speak to Laté, one of Scott’s disciples from over 20 years ago. The visit Scott and several leaders made to Togo back in April of this year challenged them. It raised the question of how our churches and disciples in Mozambique can be an even larger blessing and witness in the communities we serve. For this reason, Scott wanted to return to spend more time with Laté so they could brainstorm and further refine what the team has been thinking and praying about since the first visit. We are excited to dream about what God can do here in Mozambique. Stay tuned!


English Camp 2108

Each year we hold an annual English Camp where we invite local high school students to come spend a week improving their English skills while at the same time we get to share God’s story of love and redemption.

With every camp, we see God at work and real changes made in people’s lives. However this year, we also experienced incredible attacks from Satan trying to stop the camp. It began when the team from Brazil and four of the American team arrived in Johannesburg, only to be told they would not be allowed to connect to their next flight to Mozambique without purchasing another ticket. God prevailed and the team was let on the plane. There where other challenges, like one of the vehicles breaking down and no repair parts available. But the worst came when the police arrived at the camp, insisting all the students under 21 return to city and then the detainment of the group’s passports. Once again, God prevailed and most of the students were allowed to return and passports released with an apology.

The greatest victory, though, were the lives that despite Satan’s best attempts to stop the camp, were submitted to Christ’s lordship. In all, seventeen campers made professions of faith. One of the cooks for the camp rededicated his life to Christ, and on the last day, we all celebrated as we baptized six of the camper down on the beach.

Family News Update

We have enjoyed having both Mariah and Jayden home for their school breaks. Mariah came back to Africa in May and has just returned to Texas to begin her second year at college. Jayden joined us in July and has just returned to Kenya to begin his senior year in high school. While Jayden was home, we began the college application process. Hard to believe that a year from now, he won’t be returning to Kenya, but starting off in college in the States!
The time was very busy with ministry activities and went by way too quickly. It was good to see how much each has grown and matured. They both are amazing young people who love God and have a heart to help people. Pray with us that they will both have exciting and successful years at school this year.
