Hello from South Africa

Dumelang! Hello from South Africa!

Dennis Hilman and I (Leona Matson) arrived in South Africa just over a week ago and we've been busy since we arrived! Here are some pictures that give an overview of what we've been up to!

Much of my time is spent with the children. Here is the most recent group of kids I've taught. We were talking about who Jesus is, why He came to earth, and how much He loves us!

 One day last week we went to the prison to visit a friend of ours who is awaiting trial. We arrived just after eight and were able to visit for 10 minutes at about 10 o'clock!

These wonderful ladies are from the Thausanang congregation. We were with them last Sunday. Their congregation is mostly children! There are 20 or 30 kids and about 10 adults.

This was taken during an evening service held in Sufurbult last night. After the service we had a time of prayer for the sick. You can see Dennis' silhouette as he prays for a lady who came forward for prayer.

 Today we had pastors' seminars. Here are some of the pastors who attended. There were nine pastors and church leaders in all.

Isn't God's creation marvelous!? I've been here just over a week and I've taken dozens of sunset pictures. Dennis and I are here in South Africa for another couple weeks. Please pray for our time here, specifically for our friend's court case tomorrow, for the Letlape family who just lost their grandfather (we go to the funeral tomorrow), and for the big youth conference that comes up in a week and a half.

God's Peace to all!
