Eight hours from where we live is the village of Rakops, located close to the Central Kalahari. It is very isolated and for decades has been a stronghold of the enemy. Human and animal sacrifice take place on a yearly basis in this village. However the Lord is getting ready to change this. We are joining an outreach to this village that will take place beginning Monday, March 8th and going until Thursday, March 25th. While the outreach's main focus is on mothers, fathers, and their marriages, we are also believing the Lord to be able to bring the Gospel to the primary school students in the schools. Would you please pray specifically for this need? The enemy has already been putting up his roadblocks to discourage and prevent this outreach from taking place. However it is also very evident that the Lord is in this! This is a spiritual battle and we know where our power comes from. Thank you for interceding for this great opportunity!

We are rejoicing that we have been able to establish a partnership with Scripture Union Botswana. Scripture Union is an international non-denominational evangelical organization that disciples students at the high-school/junior and senior secondary level of education. Their headquarters are located in Canada. We signed an MOU with them for five years to help them develop their outreach to primary (elementary) school children. We will provide the training and curriculum while they have the manpower and connections to the schools. They are well established in Botswana. This literally means that instead of reaching thousands of students per week the potential is we could reach tens-of-thousands per week. We are grateful to the Lord for this great opportunity for the Gospel to impact the children of Botswana!!
Debbie and I are really looking forward to sharing about our ministry among the Quechua people in Cusco, Peru this morning! #agmd ??Bowser Missions
We are prayerfully waiting for approval to go on a short-term trip this summer. Please pray for open doors and a smooth process to get on the field.
Please join me in praying for my Stepmother who has been battling cancer for a long time. Her cancer markers have recently trended upwards and new chemotherapy treatments have been rough for her. Pray for complete healing and restoration.
Please pray that Jesus remains to be the priority in this season. That through the busyness of life and fundraising, that spending time with Jesus always comes first.
Please pray for safe travel as I visit other missionaries and have some ministry opportunities in Udon Thani and Bangkok.
Please pray for our friends who practice Buddhist prayers, to be set free from those strongholds, and to pray to Jesus instead.
Please pray for our teammate raising monthly support and preparing to come to Thailand. Her visa application is underway!
