Thanks to the U.S. Project team for a great beginning to ministry for the third term. Thanks for praying for the team pictured in the link below:
The Lord had subdued the land occupied by Israel’s enemies. Joshua said, “How long will you delay going out to take possession of the land the God of your fathers, gave you?” (Joshua 18:3).

Melanie and I are happy to announce that our second child shared she is ready to get baptized. The pastor of our church is allowing me to perform Noel’s baptism. Read more..
Sweat on my brow and lungs slightly burning are the welcoming gifts of the University of Cape Town (UCT). Set on the mountain side, I began my campus outreach with a journey to “Moscow on the Hill.”
All this has been exacerbated by me damaging our “good” car by scraping a wall which pulled off the entire front bumper. As a new South African friend muses, “Your car has a shave,” which I reply, ”Yes, just like its owner.”
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
We leave for South Africa on February 10, 2014.
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.
