A Note from Jack and Carol Benjamin

A Note from Jack and Carol Benjamin

   Jack and Carol Benjamin
   19 April 2019

 


Maybe you’ve seen one of those buildings, usually in a downtown area, that’s built to fit on an acute-angle shaped lot. One of the most popular buildings of this type, and one of New York's most popular tourist attractions, is the Flatiron Building.

The building was shaped to accommodate the existing city streets. Carol and I often feel like we are a building being shaped by the Potter to fit the city streets here (eSwatini and its culture). He continues to form us to fit where He has placed us.

“And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.” Isaiah 64:8



We hosted two wonderful teams in February. First was HIS Mission Team from Florida. We have hosted them in 2018 and, once again, they came well prepared in every way.

We also hosted the St. Olaf's Church Team from Carol's previous church in Wisconsin. They worked very hard on several projects at Motjane CarePoint.

We hosted our yearly Economic Empowerment class in March. 6 students prayed to receive Christ and we baptized 10 of them in a water tank. Praise God!



No big construction projects happening right now, but there are a few small projects here and there. This structure was recently completed at the IANF (I Am Not Forgotten) Orphanage Home that Children’s Cup supports. It will be used for firewood storage, outdoor cooking, and a place for the children to hang out together.

Thanks for taking the time to read our newsletter. May the Lord bless and keep you!

Love,
Jack & Carol
