To The Praise Of His Glory

Our Two Oceans Cluster meeting was held from the 30th of March to the 4th of April in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the theme was "To The Praise Of His Glory" Ephesians 1:11-14. Our entire leadership team did a fantastic job with this conference, in challenging and encouraging all of us to live, work, and do everything to the praise of His glory. It is my belief that God has an incredible amount of amazing things in store for this part of the world, because of the awesome group of people that He has put together in the Two Oceans Cluster, starting at the very top. Our cluster leader Wade Coker, our associate cluster leader Matt Spann, and our team leader Michael Allen are an incredible group of motivated, Godly men who will do whatever it takes to reach the lost of our cluster for Christ, and it is a pleasure to serve with them.

We were blessed to have a volunteer team from First Baptist Church Orlando, Florida to come and conduct a VBS for our kids and conduct all of our worship services. They were led by their senior pastor David Uth, who also serves as an IMB trustee to Sub-Saharan Africa. My words cannot describe how wonderful it was to have this team with us. The love that they poured out on us was incredible, and the praise and worship times were truly a time of refreshing and blessing to us all. Attached are a few pictures of the team with us and our kids. I thank God for FBC Orlando, Pastor Uth, and all of my new brothers and sisters in Christ.

Not sure how I stumbled on your blog, but I was so excited to see your post about the cluster meeting earlier this month! We had an incredible time in worship and fellowship with all of you. I pray that God allows our paths to cross again sometime soon. Until then, please tell Delaney and Walker that I said hello.
