Prayer Requests

September 1, 2018

  • The South African visa situation is still of concern. The Hoffmans were unable to return to Sunbury on their scheduled date in August and are now planning to return in December. The South African embassies are not giving any explanation for this hold on all visa’s. Pray for the Hoffman’s, Kit Tischler and each of our missionaries that could be affected (Emanuelsons, Seelhammers, and the Langleys). It appears that new systems may be implemented, but these do not seem to be consistent when talking with SA government offices in both the USA and SA.
    • UPDATE 9/24: PTL! The Hoffman’s were granted 3-year SA volunteer visas and plan to return to SA in mid-October🎉
  • Pray for our time at Moody Bible Institute. We have several meetings to discuss future internships with Moody students and furthering the relationship between ZEMA and MBI.
  • Pray for safe travels: The Pinters are flying this week. Pray for safe travels and quick adjustment for their family of five. We’ll be flying on the first of October, and traveling in the USA.  Both we and the Pinters will be returning to our homes in November.
    • UPDATE 9/24: We’re thankful that Kevin, Teen, Toby, Titus and Else have arrived safely.
  • Pray for the Pinters and the Swanks as they manage Sunbury during October and November. Pray for wisdom and smooth management of our staff and facility.
  • Pray for wisdom as we balance time with family and ministry while in the USA.

  1. Your newsletter on Facebook is very creatively presented. I am serving as chaplain at Pleasant View Home, a nursing facility for the elderly in Inman, KS. Our daughter Margery, husband, and two children reside here in Hutchinson, KS, where we moved in August, 2011.


    • Great to hear from you Dave! Thanks for your words of encouragement! And also for keeping up with our ministry. So glad you are close to family! Blessings to all of you.


  2. ZEMA is my favorite kind of mission ministry, teaching others to go back to their people passing on the word of God. Praying for you, Greg and Carlene.
