Come Go With Us!

April was quite busy.  May does not look any slower.  There are many projects and ministries evolving under CGWU.  Your continued prayers and financial support are both needed and appreciated.  We are finding our staff of 12 coupled with 2 full-time interns and a handful of other short-time interns are struggling to keep it all functioning well.\

Come Go With US as a mission team or an intern or a long-term missionary.  I promise you will find your plate full and oh, so satisfying.  If you can’t come physically…please pray for others to heed the inner calling to serve in Zambia. OR, fund a church building, a bore-hole (well), a new Bus or a vehicle, an appreciation meal for the staff, a Bible, or some rice for the children.  Widows need blankets for the June/July wintertime.  Pastors need seeds to plant in September…and we still need bicycles for those pastors who cover great distances to share with their congregations.  You can still sponsor a Bush Trip for this year and next year.  There are MANY places a few $100 bills can be effective.  Plan a visit as a team this year or next year.  We can use your help.  There are many opportunities for construction teams, medical teams, and evangelism teams…and with the new base house, there is ample room to provide a place to rest at night.

Thanks again for your prayerfull support.  We will be praying for you during our Tuesday morning staff devotional meeting.  Please pray for us as well.  It is at 2am your time every Tuesday.

Back Home Again!

In Zambia!

We have arrived – refreshed and ready to go!

Thanks for all the prayers, the support, the hospitality that we experienced visiting friends, family and supporters.  That does wonders to keep us grounded and focused on the calling at hand.

Come Go With Us!

Last minute speaking at Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Molena, Georgia…and a last visit with the kiddos…

A special send-off by some great friends of Come Go With Us and some new ones.  Ron & Gail Adams on the right have been long time supporters and have been “troopers” when it comes to rolling up their sleeves and pitching in…in ANY capacity.

We are forever thankful for Ron & Gail’s hearts for the lost in Zambia and the health and well-being of these missionaries.

 Terry and Jennifer Egan (on the left) have joined us in a fund-raising capacity.  They will be joining us here in Zambia at the end of the month for 2 weeks to learn all they can about this ministry and the needs, thereof.
