We are grateful to God for His provision for us during this trip and safety along the way. Our trip entailed a lot of travel within the US to get to our desired destinations. Chantel and I used every opportunity to share vision and minister to others on this trip and learn as much as we can.

Greg & Debbie Stier and Dare2share
A big thankyou to Quentin & Nicola Elliot and Sean & Heidie Doveton for looking after our children while we were away. You will never know our gratitude and really appreciate you for this.
Chantel and I had the privilege of going over to the US and build on our partnerships with First Baptist Mustang and sharing vision with the youth pastors in the OKC (Oklahoma) region. I had the privilege of connecting with a few of the youth pastors who are excited for what we are doing and Rachel Tice who is joining us helped set up some of these meetings, and she came along with Chantel and I.
Our time with Dare2share was strategic and fruitful learning together and dreaming of advancing the Gospel together across our planet. Chantel and I attended the one day event in Washington with the Dare2share staff and really saw how effective there training is in terms of equipping leaders and seeing a successful transfer of DNA of the model of ministry they are trying to do in the US. I have included this link for you to listen to as one of our podcast’s from June earlier this year. Click the link below:
We then spent the week with them learning from Dare2Share and really building and visioning together and seeking Gods will and guidance for us as we launch a Gospel advancing movement in South Africa.
We got to meet and interact with all the Staff at the Dare2share offices and they really helped us in the sense of running a successful lead the cause event being planned in South Africa 2016, as well as building great friendships and seeing their lives up close and first hand. I am so proud to be part of a movement that really inspires leaders and teens to live out the priorities of Jesus and live it out themselves, and they live out the Gospel advancing values in their own spheres of influence in life and ministry.
We are entering a very exciting time in the movement God has given to us. I am excited about how God is positioning various movements around the globe to really begin the last push for evangelism around the globe. Here is our time together in the US.
