Thank you for your continued care and prayer for us as a family
We trust that you are keeping safe and healthy!
Thank you for your continued care and for praying for our family and J-Life as a whole.
While the strange times of Covid continue, we are very grateful for our health and that we are able to work and minister online and in some instances in person. We are very grateful to have some kind of routine going at the moment.
Nate is at school full time with the occasional online day. He celebrated his 17th birthday last week .... where has time gone!! Jamie is at school every day and is also doing a few extra mural activities which he enjoys. He celebrated is 9th birthday in June and enjoyed having some of his friends over for a games party. Jordz is online for varsity and has just started her second semester. She is no longer interning at the church but is still very involved and Nate is also involved in various activities which is good. Its a tough time for kids that are very social - so we are grateful to have moved to a level 3 lockdown in SA which gives a bit more freedom.
John is doing well - busy with lots of zoom meetings, training, GC2 groups and curriculum development. He is still unable to travel but we are grateful to have great and very capable regional and country leaders all over the African continent and to have Warren and Lynette Jee (who are based in the USA) able to visit with many of our partner churches and individuals. Lorna is doing well - she has taken over a communications and care role in J-Life and is also enjoying running Disciplemaking groups for ladies.
Thank you once again for your continued partnership with us and your interest in our lives as a family and for your prayer and financial support.
Please continue to pray for the work of J-Life all over the continent:
The continued emphasis on MAKING DISCIPLES! That the J-Life 2030 vision is daily owned and worked towards by all our regional directors, country leaders and field workers.
Protection and provision for all of our regional directors, country leaders and field workers and their families during this tough time of Covid. Protection and provision too, for all our ministry partners and donors all over the world.
For J-Life summits taking place in various countries over the next few months
For more women and young leaders to be raised up
For the many GC2 (Great Commission and Great Commandment) groups starting all over the continent
Those doing pioneering work taking place in the following countries: Gambia, Senegal, Guinea, Burkino Faso, Mauritania, CAR, Gabon, Lesotho, Eswatini, Namibia, Angola, Egypt, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somaliland, Madagascar and South Sudan - pray for persons of peace that God will use to open the right doors.
On a personal level - for daily wisdom, energy and capacity for us as as we work and minister with many people across the continent and beyond. Also, that we would be wise and Godly parents as we seek to grow and nurture our kids. For Jordz, Nate and Jamie - that they would lean on the Lord daily and keep positive.
God bless and take care of you and please remember to let us know how we can pray for you. Whatsapp us at any time John: +27 84 7997007 Lorna: +27 84 4006133
