Our family is on the plane now. Bags are packed and hearts our full. As we leave our American family and friends, we feel encouraged and recharged. The Lord has done great things and we rejoice in his power and goodness. Please be praying for a safe journey. We will depart at 8:40pm, have a brief layover in London and arrive early Wednesday morning in Cape Town, South Africa.
Thank you for being a part of our journey with the Lord and the Best Times.
Yours in Christ,
Leon, Melanie, Leon Mack, Noel and Nala
For the next three years, Leon and I will continue our adventure with the Lord for the plans He has for our family and the Campus Crusade for Christ ministry in the Western Cape. Looking ahead, we are reminded of the importance to wait on the Lord and keeping our eyes on Him. The Lord in his graciousness gives us glimpses of his work in the lives of others.
Leon and I navigated through an activity filled November. I started the month traveling to Little Rock, AR to aid my pregnant older sister… When I returned to Houston, Leon was ordained at our church.
What kind of a report will they bring back? Will God confirm their calling to Cape Town? These were the questions that filled my head. Here is what the Lord showed them and taught them during their visit.
Nala suggested that this month we talk about courage in our newsletter. I asked her if she knew the meaning of courage. “Courage is being bold as you tell people about Jesus. You have to have lots of strength to do what God has called you to do,”
