During prayer time at the Sunday Morning Service at the All Nations Village Church, one of our leaders, Beauty, called on anyone that wanted the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to come to the front to pray. About 40 people responded, lots of them were young people. As the leaders began to pray for them many began to speak with other tongues. The service was amazing.
We have two wonderful short-term mission teams at the Love Botswana Outreach Mission right now. They are such a blessing ministering at the Church, Bible College, going to the Prisons, working with “children at risk”, helping with office work, visiting the hospital, and basically doing whatever their “hands find to do” to minister to others. Praise God for such faithful friends!
Excerpt from Christi’s journal:
We have a team of short term missionaries here at the moment. The “REZ Team” or, Resurrection Team, from Michigan. They are coming here to the house at 2 pm and they are going to make a Mexican meal for all the missionaries on the plot! They have brought all the fixin’s from the U.S.A. and they said we can just turn our kitchen over to them. So isn’t that nice? Also, they heard that Ron likes Starbucks coffee and they brought him quite a few bags of beans to take us through our time here. Praise the Lord!
Last night was the first night of the Bible School for this term. Ron and I so enjoyed teaching. Ron taught on Principles of Leadership and I taught Homiletics — I especially like teaching at the Bible School.

Our first ministry trip into Egypt was amazing. We were able to visit three major cities: Alexandria, Cairo and Luxor (Luxor was the site of ancient Thebes). We enjoyed ministering four times for the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Alexandria, and also working in a medical clinic in the heart of Cairo, in view of the pyramids at Giza! This was an incredible opportunity to interact with the Egyptian people. We found them to be kind and generous, and many have become our friends. It was great to be able to work in some practical ways in the clinic. This site is built, literally, in the garbage-dump area, because the people’s lively-hood comes from separating the garbage by hand. They had pigs living in between the apartment buildings, doing their part of consuming all the food from the garbage. No it is not an ideal lifestyle, but that is where they are and we were so pleased to have the opportunity to join with our friends in ministering to them in their need.
