Spotlight on Missions

From Paul & Courtney Gille

“We had a beautiful night for the Art/Dessert Gallery, which gave us a chance to visit with many good friends…PLUS Courtney was encouraged because so much of her art was taken, so it can finally be enjoyed in homes rather than stored in boxes!  Based on funds already sent and those promised, the needed support for our trip to South Africa in December has come in!  This is a true blessing because it keeps us from having to dip into our regular monthly support account (which has very little excess funds on hand).  Our flights are booked, and we have already begun packing…guess we’re a little excited!  Pray mostly for clear focus as Courtney and I prepare lessons to teach.  Courtney will be teaching a few sessions/devotions to the girls. This is her first time teaching in that kind of setting.  We know as long as we rely on God’s Word and His Spirit to work in hearts (theirs and ours) – all will go well!”
