I will make them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble…
Jeremiah 31:9

My husband and I went on a little retreat recently after a very intense week of ministry at our Bible School. As I sat contemplating on the veranda of our little cabin, the scenery in this photograph spoke to my situation. My heart was heavy with the reality of the many false teachings and cultural blind spots that surround the students who attend our Bible School. But – God whispered, in His faithful way, that He will keep His flock from stumbling. I don’t have to look to any lecturer, great program, or curriculum – my role is to steadfastly pray and trust in the powerful work of our Great Teacher to do His work in minds and hearts!!!

About the author

We did pastoral work on the little island of Mauritius for four years but returned to South Africa in September 2014. Since December we are working on the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal where my husband is the director for Crusade for Christ (an indigenous mission) and I coordinate the ministry of Silver Oaks Retreat and Conference Center. We see ourselves called to equip the saints to do the works God has gifted them to do (Ephesians 4:12) Our main ministry is to Xhosa and Zulu folk and we feel honored to serve the Lord for this season in this place.
