Disciples Making Disciples
Jesus Christ saved us in 1995, and very soon after we began to engage in ministry. As we served, we continued to learn and to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ. This, in turn, led us to Bible college, where we began to explore and experience what the Lord had planned for us in global mission. God continued to prepare us through short-term mission work overseas and further seminary training for each of us. We now have the privilege of going to Botswana. James will equip pastors and ministry leaders. Wendie will work with local ministries to facilitate various children’s discipleship programs. As experienced teachers, we get excited about discipling and equipping leaders. Even more, we long to help these leaders stand firm against evil spiritual influences that have invaded many churches.
The Great Commission says “make disciples … teaching them to obey everything” that Christ commanded (Matthew 28:18-20). Further, we are commanded, “What you have heard from me [Apostle Paul] in the presence of many witnesses entrust [teach] to faithful men [both men and women] who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2).
“Our hearts cry this for the people of Botswana, where we have witnessed the great need for discipleship. May God strengthen and equip His people in this land to His greater glory.
Please join us in asking the Lord to:
- Fully integrate us into the culture and into our team as we seek to live as a community – serving side by side and ministering to one another.
- Use us to our greatest capacity for His greater glory
- Do a mighty work in us and in the people we serve in Botswana to draw us all closer to Him
- Protect and strengthen our family, especially our daughters are preparing to enter into adulthood and careers.
