Happy Thanksgiving from Malawi!

Please continue to pray as we serve here in Malawi at African Bible College!  
  • Pray that as this semester is winding down we would be able to find some refreshment as we go into break.
  • Please pray for the leadership of ABC
  • please pray as we continue on here that we would rely on the King of Universe for strength!

Below are 2 verses that have brought encouragement to us!  Have an amazing Thanksgiving and thank you for loving and praying for us!

Romans 5:3-5  NIV
Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Hebrews 10:23-25
New International Version (NIV)
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

God's faithfulness and the people He uses

Wow- what an amazing God story!  About a week or so ago I had posted a financial need for 4 Master's students at the College here.  Amazing - the need was met within 3 days.  That is when we know that it's God's story!    We are so amazed by people and their amazing generosity.  We have been in Africa since 2007.  We have been in one of the poorest country in Africa.  We see needs at the rawest form and we can help so many people though the amazing people that support us.  Whether it is a child on the street, to a family in need, people that come along our way we can help, students with financial needs or pastors that want to know the Bible better!  We can help those around us!  What a testimony though really - because it is those people who trust us as they support us!  Thank you for being those and seeing God's story happening through our story!  We are here because so many of our family and amazing friends!  We are honored!  As we finish the year of 2013, we look to God for our source of strength and to meet our every need - whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual or financial!  HE continues to be faithful through the body of Christ!  We are truly humbled.  Thank you for trusting us and praying for us as we are in the Middle of Africa on the other side of the world...
Love- the stauffy family!
