Back from South Africa! (Update)

The ministry has been a little more quiet in the last few weeks for a visit with family, but we are excited to be back! We are so grateful to everyone who has been on this journey with us and has stood with the ministry. Thank You! I’m excited to see you guys on the live show Thursday at 7PM EST on both Facebook and YouTube.

Citizens of Heaven

Over the last few weeks, Christina and I had the wonderful blessing and opportunity to be able to visit my family in South Africa. It was very special to me to visit my home country and interact with the people there in the language I grew up speaking. Due to my strange accent, people in South Africa (my original home country) constantly wondered where I’m from, and when I get back to the USA, many Americans also wonder why I have a strange accent. God led us to move to America, and there are many steps of faith and sacrifices He calls us to make as believers. While I love both the USA and South Africa dearly, I recognize I’m now a foreigner in both. This reminds me how, metaphorically speaking, as we follow Yeshua, the world becomes foreign to us and we foreigners to the world’s ways. Yet, our citizenship is in our Father’s Kingdom.

I thank the Father for giving me my family, and for my Mom, whose love for God instilled in me as a young man a passion to pursue Him with all that I had. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her faithfulness of prayer and genuine and humble example of faith.

I’m excited to see you in the next video soon!
