For Hope and Healing

Carrying a message of love to the broken

Follow us as we discover God’s perfect will for our lives. In Matthew 9:36-38 God’s Word says that Jesus, “Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.’” Indeed, through our experiences God has proved that the harvest is plentiful and we intend to go as workers. Celine and I would like to be obedient to Christ’s command from Luke 10:3 to “3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.” We will not go under our own authority, but under the authority of Christ Jesus, whom said in Matthew 28:18-20 “18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” Our intent in going is not to fix the world, but to cooperate in God’s plan to save out of the world a people for Himself and to build a church of the Spirit. We will cooperate through obedience. The greatest commandments are to “love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind; and Love your neighbor as yourself.” This is how we want to live; we want to love people where they are, and to bring the Spirit of Christ to them.

We will travel overland, in a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser, which has been modified and upgraded to handle the demands of Africa’s harsh environment. The goal is to connect with people and organizations, to plant churches, and to develop spiritual leaders whom can go out and carry Christ to the community and rural areas around them. In doing so we intend to extend the Kingdom of God here on earth, bringing hope and healing to people whom can’t see past today.

This site will be updated with photos, videos, and stories from the road, but will begin with the process of outfitting the truck, as well as covering the administrative side of our preparations. While these details can be found on the blog, a more organized and user friendly version will be written into each page under the preparation menu. I hope to make this an effective roadmap for anyone else whom wishes to venture out for Christ.

Thank you for visiting and for your support!

Chris and Celine
