We Made It...God is great!!!

Bobby at Christmas 2011
So, we made it. From Detroit to Amsterdam then on to Cape Town, South Africa. Jet lag never really has set in because we didn't sleep for about 24 hours and then landed at 10:30pm here and crashed until about 11am.

We never would have made it except for your faithful prayers. Thanks for all the love and support.

We will give more details later.

Please continue to pray for a place for us to live. That is our top priority right now.

Grace and Peace,

Bob, Suzanne and Bobby

Great News!!

Wee Bobby with his cousin Kaitlyn 

So, it has been a long road for us here in the States. We arrived back home to Michigan on Sept. 18th to a warm family reception. We were greeted with open arms and sighs of relief when our family saw that all three of us had successfully made it across the globe. We were both excited to see everyone and comforted by their hugs. Of course, there were no shortage of volunteers to take hold of our newest edition.

But, with all things, change is around the corner. We were recently approved for a three year visa to South Africa. This allows us to stay in the country for the next three years and easily extend it as long as we stay out of trouble :). We are going to be working along side Calvary Chapel Cape Town for a few months then venturing off to plant our own church in the Cape Town area. This is what we believe God has for us.

Though we knew that we would be leaving, it is still bitter sweet. We are excited to start our next phase in life and service to the Lord; but exceptionally saddened by the fact that we are leaving. We had such a blessed time with our friends and family. Each one taking care of us and making sure that we were well attended to. We have nothing but thankfulness and gratitude in our hearts towards these people.

We pray God's most abundant blessings upon all those who pray for us, support us and take care of us in general. We would not be able to do what we do without you all.

Grace and Peace,

Bob, Suzanne and Bobby Scott
