Our vision for African families

 

Our first mission trip was in Kenya Africa for a year. We traveled and ministered in 11 cities. As we lived, interacted and ministered in various locations, one particular need kept presenting itself.The need for teaching on family life was GREAT and in all the places we served, it had never been taught.

Our hearts were burdened and we cried out to God. It was then that He gave us this vision:

He said, “for many, many years, missionaries and mission work have come to Africa to help the orphans and widows. And that is good. There has been much work done to help the poor. And that is good. But I don’t want you to treat the symptoms anymore but to DEAL WITH THE ROOTS!”

What roots?

1) Unfaithfulness in marriage resulting in HIV which creates an endless flow of widows and orphans
2)Polygamy ( common in the cultures) also resulting in HIV. It is also a common among Christians especially in villages.

As for poverty?
-It is not hard to figure out that a man with 2 or 3 wives and children from them all, will often struggle financially to care for his family thus increasing poverty.
The Lord impressed on our hearts that we could see a change in this generation and generations to come if we will start teaching His Word as it relates to family.

Now, we lived in Kenya that year of 2011 and taught on what God had revealed to us. In that one year alone, we saw a tremendous change in families!
Since returning from that initial trip, we have prayed waiting for the right time to return and set up an ongoing ministry to the African families. We finally think it’s time!

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help. Will you consider partnering with us on a monthly basis for a gift of $20; $30, $50; $100; $200 or more?

Our desire is to also be taking families to Africa for short or long term missions. Because we saw first hand the fruit born from us teaching the Word, but also from them just watching our family live life. We are excited to see how many lives would be impacted when other families join our family on the mission trip!
If you would be interested, please let us know.

Finally, the Lord has asked us to share the vision. Feel free to share with those you desire.

If you, your family, small group, church or business would like to partner with us and help sponsor this work. Contact us and we will be glad to serve the King of Kings with you.

Augusta, Georgia

We were recently in Augusta, Georgia. We had an amazing time with God in Worship and receiving the Word of God at the conference we attended. What great revelations!!As we were being overwhelmed with the amazing miracles and revelations God was releasing to us, we felt the need to stay longer than we had planned. This meant spending more money. Longer hotel stays and increased meal gas expenses. Well, we were just about out of money. So we began to pray.

To shorten the story, we received a phone call from a family we have not met yet. They and their friends, offered to pay for the extra hotel stays! Wow!! They called the hotel and took care of it. Praise be to God! Hallelujah!! To this day, we have not yet met these wonderful people.

One need was met. We thanked God. We then waited to see how He would provide for the extra food. We got another phone call. A lady we had just met in one of the meetings. She was coming to the hotel to see us. She showed up with lots of food and drinks! We still have some of those drinks!! What an amazing God we serve! She had prepared the food for a birthday party but they ended up not needing that food. She said that when she saw us, she just knew that we are the ones she had cooked for. So, she wonderfully unloaded her beautiful feast in our hotel room.

So, we were left with gas money. That evening, we got a call inviting us to an African Christian Fellowship meeting the next day. We went and found them discussing the how to do missions… We knew why God had planned for us to stay. We spent that evening ministering and encouraging our brothers and sisters as the Holy Spirit led us. It was an ‘awe’ moment seeing how God had planned for this meeting and the after meeting. What divine connection! Before heading to the hotel, a gentleman came and thanked us and handed us cash. Then the leader stopped us on our way out and handed us a check! God had provided for what He had asked us to do.

Often, people want to wait to see everything in place before obeying, but that is not faith. God just requires us to OBEY! It doesn’t need to make sense to us. In fact, most of our Christian walk doesn’t make sense.

God is asking us to simply OBEY.

The God that provides, part 1

We serve a living God. A wonderful Father that provides well for His household. I want to share some testimonies of His wonderful ways of providing for our family.

The summer of 2015, we were in Niagara Falls Ontario. We wanted to go up the Skylon tower until we realized how much it was going to cost our family of 8. So we settled with just visiting the falls.

This past summer while ministering in Niagara Falls ON, God granted us our desire. A lady whom we ministered to told us that the Lord had asked her to give us a TOUR OF NIAGARA FALLS! It turns out that she is a tour guide in Niagara Falls. So we made arrangements and she came to pick us up in the tour bus of the company she works for! Just us, our family! Wow! She gave us the complete tour including free rides up the Skylon Tower; photo shoots at the Towers’ booth and the history and information we didn’t know about the Falls. A 5hr guided tour, all for free!

It was definitely way more than we had imagined.

God is so good.

She even showed up with a meal for us where we were staying one of the nights.

God cares. How wonderful He is! Be encouraged, He knows your needs and cares for even your desires.

God, our Healer!

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. From our last ministration at the church here, we received testimonies of healings from people we had prayed for. One is a lady that the Lord had given me a word of knowledge about a sickness in her body that she had been praying for for a long time which when I told her she confirmed that it was true and it was her liver and I prayed for her and she happened to go the hospital because she had a flu and they did some other tests on her and to her surprise told her that her liver was now completely well. Praise God! Hallelujah!

Another one is of a young lady who had many chronic complications in her body that constantly bothered her and I prayed for her and she later reminded me who she was when she stopped by the church as she had moved to another town and told me that she got completely healed when I prayed for her. Praise God!

God’s promises of healing are as sure as his promises of salvation.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. Pitana & Nadia

Fort Stockton TX, 2017

On our way to San Antonio TX, we spent two nights in a small historic town called Fort Stockton. We arrived on a Saturday and began to prayerfully ask the Lord where he would have us worship in the morning. He led Pitana to a church by the name Grace Point church. It was the Superbowl Sunday. Our sons were really wanting to watch the game, but we don’t have cable in our RV. So, we told them to pray that God would provide a place to watch the game; perhaps someone from the church we would be attending.

We were warmly welcomed and by God’s doing, we happened to be there at a very critical time in that church history. They were transitioning to move into a bigger building and were still casting the vision before fundraising to finish renovations in the bigger building. It was an emotional time for the church as they were looking back at God’s faithfulness in answering their prayers and the miracles He had performed to get them this far, such as, making a way for them to buy the 20,000  square foot building and parking lot for only $200,000 when JUST the parking lot was on sale for $200,000! But that is God! He owns it ALL!!

In our brief introduction meeting with the pastor and his family, arrangements were made for dinner and the watching of the Superbowl game at his home. The boys were overjoyed. God had answered their prayers!

We spent the evening in wonderful fellowship with the pastor, his family and his leadership team and their family. Great food; enjoyed the game but best of all. Talked about our First Love, JESUS.  We were honored to encourage these wonderful brothers and sisters as we shared the Word and testimonies of what we have witnessed God do.
Divinely appointed, we had made new friends.

 

On our way eout, some walked over and handed us cash and a check, thanking us for joining them that night.

Truthfully we had been tremendously blessed by their hospitality and reception of what we had to share. We had been fed and found like minded brethen to spend time with. Our children had had new friends to play with, watched the game and to top it all, God was financially​ blessing us, encouraging us to keep going. Going to wherever else He would lead us.

Praise be to His Holy name!

A visitation from Jesus part 2

The Bible says in Job 10:12 the following: your visitation has PRESERVED my spirit. So as you see from this scripture,  a visitation from the Lord has a purpose and that is the preservation of your spirit. It is something to be desired and asked for. Most of the time we don’t have because we don’t ask (James 4:3). Sometimes we don’t ask because we don’t know if we should ask. Rarely will the Lord sovereignly pay us a visit but most of the time He wants us to ask Him to. The purpose of my sharing is to encourage you that this is your inheritance in Christ. He said that a little while from now, the world will not see me but you WILL see me( Not might but will). John 14:19. As many are reading this and running with it, I pray that you will be one of them. In Jesus name I pray and believe.
