First, David has been to Africa and back in the last month. He and Hayzlee King spent some time in Uganda visiting HERE AM I Bible School and doing some children's ministry with Heartland Worship Center. The feeding program for the children is booming, and David and Hayzlee were excited to spend some time with the kids. Below are a few pictures and videos from their trip.
Second, we have a HUGE update on Rael. For those who may not know, Rael has lived with a broken hip for over a decade. She had a surgery to fix it, however it failed and her condition was made worse. You can read more about her story here. By God's grace the Mayo Clinic has agreed to see her! This means she is coming to the United States! We are currently waiting on her and her husband (Morrice) to get their new passports, which should happen in the next week. When she gets to the Mayo Clinic they will see her for 5-7 days and will have to stay in a hotel during that time. Then, a group of doctors will meet to discuss treatment options before they proceed. We are so thankful for the Mayo Clinic's help, and they have been very open and kind to the whole situation. We are asking for your prayers that the visas, passports, finances, etc. would all be met. We know this will bless Rael, but we also know Rael will bless all those she will come in contact with.
Next, we are holding a Mission Conference at the Maryville Community Center on November, 9th, from 8:30am-4:30pm. Speakers will include our very own David Spencer, Jeff Kennedy and Casey King of HERE AM I Ministries, and Greg Stout of Safe Water International Ministries. We'll have worship with JC Dirks and Eli Masilko. Plus, lunch will be provided! All are welcome to attend. Please RSVP through our Facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to have you join us!
Lastly, David will be returning to Africa for most of the winter. We are asking for many prayers for him as we continues the work at the school and reaching the lost with safe water and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you all for your support and prayers.
