We have a lot of joy and expectation as we head into this new season of growing responsibility and travel. God first spoke that this would happen and then rapidly these and other invitations arrived to be part of a slightly broader conversation with YWAM leaders around Africa and internationally to learn from the founders of YWAM and hear God together for the future of the Mission. At the same time, we have seen our kids need a permanent base for the next 5 or so years to finish high school, and that they need a more permanent base for these years and a house to come home to. After home schooling all her life, Beth is asking to go to a “normal” school, which makes sense with her extremely outgoing character.
After a time of prayer, advice and processing we have decided that it will be right to move our family to Muizenberg in Cape Town to be near the biggest YWAM base in Africa. Muizenberg is a good place for the kids to do school and we can work with YWAMers here to bring encouragement, training and visiting teams into South Central Africa. We have also felt that God say that there is a new miracle for us, that He wants to give us a house! A home in fact, that we will own in Muizenberg. A house Suzy and the kids can be at while Daniel travels and we can come back to when we finish our bigger trips together as a family. Like next year’s 5-month Zambia road trip we are planning. It is with some trepidation that we look at the extra financial costs, faith and spiritual needs that this new season and growing call brings. But He has been speaking 2 Corinthians 9:8 to us, saying that there will be enough for every need and good work because He is ABLE to make His grace abound to us.
