Hi from my home in Zambia! I am so thankful to have been here at home when all the travel restrictions and national lock-downs began a few months ago due to Covid-19. The nature of my work means I am often travelling, so I am grateful I didn’t get stuck somewhere else like I know many people have.
In the beginning of the pandemic I had to choose if I would stay in Zambia or travel to Canada. Looking back over the last few months I am so thankful that I remained in Zambia. God has used my team in a really special way to continue to reach out to the ladies in Zambia and various other locations in Africa. Wearing face masks became law in most African countries, so it was a great opportunity for many of the ladies to sew face masks and receive income for each mask they sewed. The masks were then distributed to the most vulnerable in various communities. Within a few weeks the ladies in Zambia had sewn over 7,000 masks!

God has given each of us one life here on earth to live and to make Him known. Nearly every day I find myself asking the questions, “Am I doing all that God is asking me to do? And am I loving Him with my whole being, or just limiting Him to work through certain areas of my life?” My desire is to give my best for Him, and I trust you also desire the same.
God is on the move and I love that even when we keep trying to tell Him we aren’t good enough, He still chooses to use us in amazing ways.
I have found myself still wrestling with the fact that 4 years ago my life began to change in major ways. My body is always in pain, it is usually quite weak, and I feel like I’m in a constant mental & emotional battle. It can actually be so exhausting.
However, the amazing thing is that even though I sometimes feel like I’ve lost so much, God still wants to use me to empower others! Over these past 2 months I’ve experienced God at work through Tabitha in Zambia & around Africa…in the lives of Ester & Imeldah…& in the community of 4Miles.

“Prostitution, beer drinking, drunkenness, insults, fighting, uneducated children, malnutrition and witchcraft,” answered Rachel when asked to describe her community called 4Miles. “Everyone is living without hope. I feel pity for the children here, all with dirty and ragged clothes, and drunk parents. When someone gets sick they go to the witchdoctors, not realizing that is not where they can find real healing, truth, and everlasting life.”
