Flight Number ET846

So today is the 1st of February and my family and I are still in South Africa.

Yip, we didn’t board our Ethiopian Airlines flight last night, but wait! Let me take you a week and half back to a phone call that adjusted our next couple of weeks.

The phone rang and I saw one of our leaders’ name displayed on my phone. It is always great speaking with him and I do have a lot of respect for his leadership. He asked how we were doing and I replied. In the end we were speaking about the right timing in which things should happen.

For us that meant extending our stay here in South Africa with a couple of weeks until mid April. The main reason being that our necessary funds are not yet on target, and so we’ve been encouraged to make sure we reach that goal before we depart. Currently that is our main focus apart from serving locally where we can.

We rest in God’s timing concerning our departure to Kenya. We know that He has brought certain leadership into our lives to instruct, guide and impart to us in every season that which He desires.

We are SUPER exited to get everything in order so that we can run into everything that God has prepared for us in Nairobi. We also acknowledge that this is a marathon and not a sprint.

“Building slow is building fast.” – Steve Murrell

Until we leave we will be staying in Wellington. We have been really privileged that God has blessed us with two vehicles (we’ve already sold ours ;->) to use during our extended time here in the Boland valley. Thank you SO much for everyone that has made their homes and cars available to us!

Please trust with us as we keep placing our faith in God’s character and nature to supply all that we need to accomplish mighty endeavours in the nations. For more information on what we are still trusting for please visit our Hebrews 11:1 page.

Going Going Gone!

Good morning family and friends

We trust that you had a wonderful festive season, filled with love, kindness and the presence of Jesus Christ.

When you think about it, everything revolves around this name. Jesus Christ. What is our response to the name of Jesus Christ? To us it means that everything and everyone finds its purpose in Him. That is why we as a family are on our way to Kenya.

In approximately 18 days we will be boarding on our Ethiopian Airways flight en route to Nairobi. The vision?

To make disciples, raise leaders and plant churches.

Churches that can do the same until East Africa, then the rest of Africa and the nations will know and please God. We see a sending hub that is established to equip and empower many local East Africans to go into the harvest.

The challenge?

Support.

Yup, you’ve guested it. We have been busy raising funds to be able to make a living in Nairobi. Seeing that it is about twice as expensive to live there as opposed to South Africa, we have been trusting the Lord to add to our existing finances.

Currently we have reached 50% of that goal. Yet, through a lot of prayer and Godly counsel, we are still determined to set off on the next phase of our Beukes journey. We are therefore still in need of more wonderful men and woman, like yourselves, who are passionate about the Gospel and its Gift to the nations.

In light of our challenge we would like to launch our BandofBeukes page. This is a page designed to encourage you to give other people an opportunity to become part of our vision. Please visit our BandofBeukes page and refer friends, family and even colleagues that might want to partner with us. Or otherwise, we would greatly appreciate it if you could contact us concerning someone you might feel can potentially become part of the vision in this regard.

Thank you for being invested in this apostolic vision to reach the nations. Your passion and steadfast support in every regard enables us to respond to the call to go and be a light of salvation to the ends of the earth.
