5 THINGS WE ARE THANKFUL FOR

November 30th, 2010 1 comment

Today I have decided to take the time out to think through the year 2010. Paying particular attention at the things that I am thankful for. In many respects the year 2010 was not the easiest, having lost our mother in February and dealing with illnesses in the family and the list goes on and on. In spite of all these, this is what I am thankful for:

1. FAMILY – Gracious, Heidi, and Zayne. I am immensely thankful for such a patient, understanding, kind-hearted, and generous family. Heidi for all the laughs that you give us each day. There are no others who are as loyal as my wife, as tolerant as my in-laws (I still awe them two cows), as supportive as my brothers and sisters, and as trustworthy as my Life Coach. These guys are awesome!

2. OUR MINISTRY PARTNERS – The Lord has raised  a team of ministry partners for us people who pray for us and give sacrificially to make the work of God possible. Without your investment in our ministry we would not have been used of God to impact the World with the Gospel. You are Changing the world through your Sacrificial prayer and financial support.

3. OUR STAFF TEAM – Our team has been such a great source of encouragement this year as we been serving God. The team in Harare has been used by God to encourage us in our times of family crises. The team in Botswana has helped us clarify God’s dream for that nation and what the Lord would have us to.

4. ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES – The Lord has enlarged our territory and given us more ministry opportunities. He has also opened a door for me (Taffy) to  learn and be equipped for greater ministry. This time of equipping has helped me develop deeper roots in my character and ministry skills/competence

5. AN OPPORTUNITY TO IMPACT THE WORLD – The Lord opened doors for us in the year 2010 to reach out to numerous students on our college Campuses. Through the internet I have had 289 conservations in three months, with 186 going through discipleship. These people are literally from around the world. The Lord has blessed with global impact. For Gracious it has been an opportunity to impact future families, two of the ladies she was coaching and mentoring over the past  few years got married this year.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” – Num.6:24-26

Waiting On the Lord

As we ave been raising Support this has been great time of waiting on the Lord. There have been time that I have been so discouraged by the pace of things. Only to be reminded that God is still in control and that we need comes from Him and it will come right on Time. My prayer is that God would give me the grace to hold on to him.
