We have a very unique opportunity and we need your help. With the current elections in South Africa and other situations surrounding the farmers, the Rand has taken a big drop. As many of you know, Swaziland’s currency is based on the South African Rand. With this dip, we are able to accomplish several of our current projects well below the initial budget.
We will be landing back in Swaziland the beginning of November. We are praying that we are able to hit the ground running. We will be securing the land for the next church plant. This is in an area outside Malkerns. This has been on our hearts for over a decade, and God has opened the doors for us to begin. This specific area is where AIDS is believed to have started in Swaziland, mainly because of the heavy prostitution and witchcraft there. First we need to construct the kitchen for the feeding site as well as dig the well for the community. After that, we can begin building the church. This way we are immediately serving the community and children and “being the church” before the structure is complete and able to hold services. We have already begun meeting in homes and we are ready to put up the tent for the next phase.
We are believing for a financial miracle and for the funds to be here within the next month and a half in order to complete the kitchen and the well. The initial budget to complete these two projects was $7,000. If we can move quickly, we can complete both projects for $5,600.00. This is a huge savings. We are also praying to be able to purchase a tent for the initial church meetings. We already have some of the funds pledged and we are just short $800. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us to make this happen. We are looking for 100 supporters to contribute $64.00 or 64 supporters at $100.00. This ministry project will completely transform a very dark community in Swaziland and bring healing, deliverance, and the love of Christ where a group of people feel totally hopeless. Please pray about whether God would want you to be a part of bringing hope to a place where the enemy has been killing, stealing, and destroying for too long. We are saying “ENOUGH!” and are believing God to transform and bring hope!
