It was a blessing to have Jeff visit! Thank you everyone who prayed for him and supported him. Thank you Heather, Nathanael, Bryce, and Joel for all the clothes, shoes, cars and candy! The pastors and their families were thrilled to get all the items! I admit I ate a few pieces of candy, but hey Kreiser boys, I figure if I can jump on a trampoline with you for hours, I have earned a few chocolate bars! We like things with lots of sugar here in Malawi. Thank you guys for having such generous hearts!!!
I want to let you all know, especially those at Lakeside, that Jeff worked really, really, really hard for the full two days that he visited. My church family here got every little bit of wisdom and training that they could. He led a leadership training on church growth and administration for the pastors and leaders at our Ndirande Acts III Church and it was exceptional from all reports! But what Jeff will be remembered for in the minds and hearts of my church family here is his great love, encouragement, knowledge of scripture and commitment to prayer. “For as many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14 Thank you for listening and responding to the Holy Spirit in ministering to my church family here. Thank you Jeff, my true brother in Christ, for blessing those I love. It is truly the most beautiful gift! Here are some pics of his trip. Love, Maribeth P.S. Having tec problems. More pics to come! Sorry only two pre-Jeff pics.
