Dear Family & Friends,
September was my busiest month on deputation so far. I was able to travel to 3 Missions Conferences and several meetings in PA, VA, & RI. God certainly directs our paths. He walked before me and placed me in the churches and homes where I needed to be. I was able to minister to several people along the way and was well ministered to. The body of believers that I have been able to spend time with has certainly made an impression on me.
During this last Missions Conference I was privileged to teach the children every night. Satan did his best to distract the kids from God’s Word, but the Lord had the victory! At the end of the week a few of the boys & girls came to me and thanked me for coming to teach them (each shared specifically what they learned and how they will apply it). I believe the Lord used His Word to impact thier lives concerning missions and soul winning.
1Chronicles 16:8 says, “Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people.” As we enter into this season of thanks I am reminded of a little Zulu boy in the village of Embo. His name is Siyabonga, which means “we thank Thee”. His parents were so thankful that the Lord gave him to them that they named him in thanks to God. We have a lot to be thankful for. Over the past few months the Lord has continued to provide for my needs. You have been praying about my vehicle situation and last month I was able to purchase a new vehicle. Praise the Lord for feeling safe when I travel to church meetings! My support level has also climbed to 25% (that is $750 of the $3000 per month that I need to get to South Africa). Giyabonga means “I thank you” in Zulu. Thank you for praying for my traveling safety, added support and more meetings. I just scheduled two meetings for November. Please keep praying for more meetings & especially for churches to take me on for support. Every time I watch my dvd presentation I think of how much older the children like Siyabonga will be by the time I get to the mission field. How I long to minister to those people that the Lord has burdened me for.
In His Service,
Gina A. Frey
Welcome friends, old and new, known and unknown! It has been my desire to share with you how the Lord is working in my life as I serve the Lord on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. There is an old black and white movie called The African Queen. It is about a boat that travels down river. This blog is not about a boat. It is however, about my travels on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. By the way, did you know that my name means queen. For many years I have been burdened for souls in Africa. That is why some of my friends call me African Queen.
