Who Wants a Hug?
Departure day is finally here for Cris and his team for the long-awaited South Africa mission trip! Working alongside to support the Nazarene Church in Rustenburg, the team has their hands full as they run a teens’ conference, a kids’ camp, and dive in to meet any other need present. With everything they accomplished and all the fun that they had, a few special team moments came in a new member gained literally on the plane there and in Cris’ son, Carlos’ appearance in full costume!
Being part of heaven on Earth as it unfolds around the world gives new energy and perspective. While we can play a part in encouraging our local partners practically and relationally, the chance to be the church in action in South Africa gave us more than we could have expected!
