An Exciting Update!

This past week, we've had some big news. 

We mentioned last fall that we were exploring opportunities for our family to work in South Africa and Namibia. In January, we (Ben, Beth & Stella) had the amazing opportunity to take a trip and see both Bible colleges, meet lots of people, and see for ourselves a little of what life would look like in both locations. 

There were many sweet blessings about our trip, but one of them was unexpected: an appreciation for TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) and desire to partner with this organization as we pursue what the Lord has for our family. Upon return, we began the rigorous application process to formally become missionaries with TEAM.

After months of prayer and many conversations, we felt that the opportunity to work at Union Bible Institute in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa was the best fit for our family and have been looking that direction since.

Last Thursday, we heard that we were formally accepted by TEAM to serve as long-term missionaries in South Africa. As many of you know, we have been looking toward serving the Lord overseas for many years and are so excited that our desire is finally becoming a reality. 

At this point, our next step is to attend a TEAM missionary orientation in July before beginning the support-raising process. We are thankful for your continued prayers and interest in how the Lord is directing us!
