New York-orientation

Ephesians 3:20-21

"Now to Him who able to do farm more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work witin us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

Hello Everyone!!

So as most of you know I'm on my way to Rundu, Namibia in south west Africa. Yahoooo!!! The Lord is amazing!!! I just want to know Him more! So we will be working a "sports camp" with bible lessons and art with 2 different villages for 12-18 year old girls! I can't wait to get in on the coversations God has already began with them in their hearts! I am so looking forward to all the relationships that I will have the chance to build with these ladies!

I am in New York right now at USA AIM (Africa Inland Mission) headquarters for orientation! It has been wonderful! I am learning and remembering amazing things that I know will be incredibly helpful while in Rundu. Just remembering our God is limitless and I can expect that He will use us to make a difference ---and this is the God I will get to introduce to these girls!

My team of girls is amazing! They are Stacey, Jenna, Angela, and Meredith if you would like to keep them in your prayers by name! It is very neat to see how God has prepared us all for this journey and how it seems we were hand picked by God to go to this area as a team to spread His message!

Our team was talking about Nehemiah last night and how cool it is that God took the cup-bearer and used him in an incredible way! Also something awesome....Nehemiah was only on the wall for 52 days! How awesome, such a testimony to what God can do in a short time! I cannot wait to get to Rundu and begin showing these young ladies God's love for each and everyone of them! How awesome that He chose me to do this! I can only praise the Lord with much thanksgiving!

I love you all and am praying for everyone at home!

To Him be the glory forever and ever,


  1. Stephani, I was so excited about the blog, love it!!!

Be careful and take care of yourself, lots of love and prayers, Kathy

  2. Stephani, Continue to watch for God in his WOW moments. It may be in the small things or it may be something huge. I just know how special you will feel when you see God personally involved in your life and ministry. That's when you will say "wow, did you see what God just did?"

He has so much in store, I can hardly wait to see what it all entails!!! :) (I'm so excited...I'm sorry..I have all these tunes floating through me...:D) Karen and I were having lunch and we were talking, and we said we would love to be looking down through God's eyes and just watch everything unfold.How awesome would that be! All those girls hearts being prepared and tenderized and you all coming on the scene and teaching and interacting; and relationships being formed...how totally awesome beyond words! I can't begin to make a smiley wonder face for that one. Just know, Stephani, Stacey,Jenna,Angela& Meridith, we will be praying continually for you all!!!We love you!! Mom
