Current newsletter from one of our World Missions partners, Shannon & Corné Stone:
Greetings from South Africa…
Once again we would like to thank everybody again for blessing us during our visit to the US. We were so touched by your love!!
After we arrived back we had to replenish the pantries of our food spots right away. We are trying to find an alternative source to buy food from because quite a few bags of food got maggots while we were gone. Fortunately our friend Douglas was able to replace it in our absence.
One of the most common prayer prayed amongst the women in the Bible study is to find employment. When we arrived back, 4 women gave God glory for finding jobs. The lady who turned from witch craft to Christ actually found a new place to stay which is not only much better, but it removed her from her previous “clientele” which makes her new path with Christ easier.
Here’s two special prayer requests from 2 of our ministry children.
Matsidiso’s grandmother, who is their sole care taker fell ill. She told me that they have no food at their house. We will do a food drop and lay hands on grandma soon. Another tiny, thin little girl, Itumeleng, told us that she gets nightmares and severe headaches every night. We will visit her to pray over her house.
We would like to do a Blanket and Bible outreach, like we did the last 4 years. We haven’t received any donations for this yet, so please pray with us for this. This year we would like to concentrate on one specific area of the township. It is one of the poorest areas, but when we reached out there before we felt a real openness to God. I hope to start a Bible study in this area as well, so please pray for the spiritual preparation for this.
Praying God’s abundant blessings on you!
Shannon & Corné
