I am thankful to God for what He is doing through the movement of Go–Live–Dare. God is at work and is evidently moving in a clear way according to His will for an gospel advancing ministry here in South Africa. Here is a brief fly-through of what God has been doing in the last 2 months.
My trip to the USA
I recently visited supporters and new board members of Go–Live–Dare based in the US. I visited North Carolina, Chicago Illinois, Texas and Oklahoma. I then went on to spend a week in Chicago with Dare2Share as they ran an equipping event called ‘Lead the Cause’. This is a week long event aimed at equipping the teens of America, which was awesome to see young people on the streets of Chicago sharing the Gospel. I was there for training and developing a partnership with Dare2Share and I am excited to see how God continues to develop what He is doing with Go–live–Dare.
I got to spend the day strategizing with Greg Stier (CEO & Founder), Debbie Bresina ( President of Dare2Share), Jason Loewen (Director of training) as well as Zane Black (Awesome speaker at the events) who are the main leaders with Dare2Share. This was a key time for me in the development of Go-Live-Dare. More news to come as we proceed with training here in South Africa. Please pray for Dare2Share as they seek to develop an international ministry.
Below is the team from Texas, Elmont Baptist & Blue Ridge Bible church serving with Go-Live-Dare this past month. They spent 2 weeks with us and helped in two key areas doing holiday bible club, sports ministry and children’s ministry in the Masinenge and Munster area. God really used this team to bring glory to Himself. Here is an extract from two of the young ladies on the team, Molly McQuirk & Hannah Smith :
Let me introduce you to our board of Directors, which has 2 aspects to it. Firstly, the board of directors and secondly an advisory board.

As of the end of August, J-Life Ministries will no longer be accepting funds on our behalf from Amazon Charities (#0027) as we will no longer be on their books. I am currently in talks with 2 different organisations and am hoping they can assist when it does come to doing transfers to South Africa.
First Baptist Mustang has kindly offered to help in the interim. The Associate pastor is Jeff Le Duc who will be handling the transfers of our ministry support and can be contacted through his secrectary on 405-376-4567 for more info.
