Updates from Steph via Last Phone Call with Jason

Jason asked me to update his blog as he has limited access to Internet for the next few days.

Many thanks to all of you who are praying for him and the team. Both of us are most grateful for each one of your prayers. It's been a blessing to hear what's been going on. I believe God has a great plan for ministry in Zimbabwe! I'm so glad that Thomas wants to return home and that COC has a tremendous opportunity to be apart.

Here's the latest:

  • Friday night Jason preached last minute to 60 youths. He gave his testimony, had a Q & A and taught out of Romans 12:1-2 with the title "Two Decisions Every Christian Should Make". The main points were: 1) Decide to Be Committed to God & 2) Decide to be Changed by God's Word.
  • On Saturday morning the team will travel about 5 hours south of Harare into rural Zimbabwe to preach at a Pastors Conference. There will be about 70 - 90 pastors from around the country. They greatly desire Leadership training so Jason's messages will be geared around what Pastors should be and what Pastors should do.

That's all I have for now but I'll keep you updated as I get word of Team Z's activities. Sam Minyard should be leaving either today or tomorrow to join the group soon. Please remember him in your prayers this weekend.

Thanks again from a grateful wife!

Hey Jason. NO baby yet, but we hope to have him by the time you get home. I hear that I was right about my prediction for...um...weight loss. Sounds like you got that all squared away. We pray for you daily. I'm looking forward to seeing you when you get back. I miss zombie hunting!
