South Africa

Merry Christmas.

This will be my last post for a few weeks. At some point in the next couple weeks, I’ll be making a very special trip, a trip I’ve wanted to make for several years. I’ll be going to Cape Town, South Africa as part of a teaching team. There is tremendous potential for the Gospel in a nation so ravaged by apartheid and HIV/AIDS. Over 6 million South Africans are living with HIV, more than the entire population of the state of Alabama. The pall of racism still hangs heavy over South Africa. Yet, beauty also envelopes this land where the human spirit is as indomitable as ever. This is a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to spend time in a different part of the Lord’s vineyard.

Wishing you a safe and prosperous 2011. And if you’re so inclined, say a prayer for me and my travels. See you in a few weeks.

    that’s great news, jason. what are you going to be teaching, and with whom? may God bless your trip with safety, and may he be glorified in all you and your team do.

    i hate for you to be on the african continent and us not share a coffee. alas, south africa is very far.

      thanks for the thoughts, brett. we were in cape town, south africa as part of a teaching / encouragement trip. we had a pretty large team, consisting of my wife and myself! we spent time encouraging some of the brothers and sisters there. the only word for it is blessing…it was a blessing and a privilege to spend time with these dear brothers.
