Hi!

I am beyond excited that I am privileged to be returning again this year to South Africa to iKhethelo Children’s Village in Durban!  I went last year for a week focused on the teenagers who would soon be leaving the orphanage.  I was absolutely hooked by many elements at play that solidified a long term partnership, the youth and their friendship, the atmosphere at iKhethelo Village (one big family of roughly 65!), and the gorgeous surrounding Valley of a Thousand Hills that these children will likely go out into.  All of this together fostered a week that I was certain would not be the last.  Praise God, the week was very successful and so we are soon to be enroute for the second annual trip specifically working with the teens!  This year we are focusing on a theme of stewardship, earthy wealth and spiritual wealth and the importance of having solid perspectives in both.  We are excited to play a week long monopoly-type budget game to get their competitive spirits going while at the same time helping the teens to grasp basic budgeting.  We have already seen our Father provide in impressive ways in the weeks planning and we expect much more as the multi-fold Spirit (Isaiah 11) will be our Leader in wisdom, understanding, counsel and power.

I genuinely wish you all would join me for the duration of this week (we still do have room for a few more folks!), but as it is not likely, I would love for you to take part in ways other than being on the ground whether in prayer support or through financial support.  Each team member is raising $3000 for which everything over our transportation is invested directly into the village for the children's' shelter, food, clothing, medical care and education - a pivotal tool for their future.  The more we gather, the broader we will be able to scatter there!

Serving The Winning Kingdom alongside you,
Kara
