RMI Africa: “Above Everything Ever Hoped or Dreamed”

Dear Partners, I am so very thankful. This is my first Thank you note working full-time for the ministry. Without your financial support as well as your prayers, this would not have been possible. I praise the Lord for partners with such kind, loving and giving hearts. I pray the Lord bless you above everything you have ever hoped or dreamed. Thank you for being obedient to our Heavenly Husband when He leads you to give. So many lives are changed because of this obedience. With all my heart I thank you again.

Here are a few Praise Reports within my Ministry

The Lord has just restored the relationship between my youngest daughter and my father they had not spoken in 3 years! My father even changed his Facebook Profile Picture to a picture of the two of them together. I had been praying for the restoration of broken relationships in our family.

During April this year over a million South Africans gathered to pray for South Africa. The retelling of the story was set in a book documenting the day and the powerful testimonies that changed lives. I just won the book in a competition. Thank You, my Beloved Husband.

Here’s What’s New!

A few things are new: I took up my position as Managing Operations Director, which is such a blessing for me:) And one of our translators, Mercy, who was on sabbatical joined our Afrikaans team again. Praise my Wonderful Lord!!! And then Atarah, is getting more and more involved in the African Ministry.

And so each of you know how much your support means to my ministry, here are just few of the many women you’ve helped and just a little of what each of their situations was when each first found us and HIM.

Well myself and one of our SA Ministers have just started contacting SA woman telling them the wonderful things the Lord is busy doing in the SA ministry:) So I trust the Lord that by my next Thank you note I will have something inspiring to share!

Lord, I feel so humble to be here and in Your will. My dearest Love, I cannot for one second imagine that I am capable of doing this work, but I know that through You ANYTHING is possible, because here I am sitting behind my computer writing this note:) It all still feels so surreal to me and You showing me over and over that this is where You want me. Here I am Lord. Lord, I pray that You make me a fisherman for women who need You and is so desperate for love that they search for it in all the wrong places like I did until I found my Heavenly Love. Now I understand that the desperation was to fill that void that only Your love can fill. I love you so very much and pray Lord that You guide me in Your infinite wisdom. Amen.

I cannot have imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be here ministering, nor did I think I wanted to. Until He called me. I remember the night it happened as if it was yesterday. I have no skills, no training. All I have is Him and His word and that is all He needs. For us to be willing to obey Him. He can use any person, He does not need you, but won’t you like it if it was you? I never felt that I was important enough to be doing such important work for the Lord. LOL, turns out I do not need to be important because He is Who is important not me, I am but a vessel and I love it:)
