Update- June 16

Hi! I don’t have very long, but I’ll tell you a few stories. A week ago we stopped by a city called Bloemfontein to join with a local ministry who’s been ministering to prostitutes and trafficked people for the past 4 years. These people are SO bold, saying that they will do whatever they need to do, even if it changes only one life. So we hit the streets with them for something of a training night for us. We watched them pull women out of sports bars and have us talk with them and pray for them. The experience was a little frightening, but so encouraging. Other members of my team were part of taking a woman home that night. The woman went home to her husband and found that that night he had gotten a job- their finances were turning around, she won’t need to go to the streets anymore!!! They weren’t really Christians before, but were so open to the Gospel that they accepted Christ into their lives that night.
We’ve also talked with many homeless people, more prostitutes, children who are probably trafficked, and fans that we’ve talked to about Jesus and human trafficking. It’s been very fruitful so far, and I’m so excited for more.
Today, we’re going to visit a safe house where trafficked women are staying, and go to the stadium here in Durban to raise awareness and minister. We’re also hitting the streets tonight to minister to prostitutes and their pimps and Johns.
Please be praying for our health (people are on the verge of getting sick), unity as a team, and continued prayers for our safety. It’s been incredible how God has worked out our safety through all we’ve done. He’s given wonderful strategy and kept our eyes keen. When I am afraid, I will trust in him!!!
I love you and miss you, and be sure to say a cheer for South Africa! I don’t know if American TV tells you this, but their team name is Bafana Bafana (the guys the guys), and the loud horn things you hear are called vuvuzelas (really annoying after a while here…), and the way to cheer in a goal here is shouting Laduma! (but you say it Laduuuuuuuuuuuuuma)
