Vision for Namibia Summer Harvest
Our lives are filled with the important places, people, events, responsibilities.. What stands out among our personal sea of responsibilities is what is URGENT. It prioritizes our efforts, our schedule, our resources, our attention.
Christ came not for the important things in our world but the URGENT need of our world. Souls, Souls, souls! We have a deep desire to win, encourage and reach the souls of the southwestern African country of Namibia. We want to go and spy the land of Namibia and take the first steps towards moving to Namibia.
Our plan is to move there in 2022/23 and plant a church and Bible college to reach the souls of this country. Won’t you take the challenge and join on this adventure of faith?

Who is Leading This Trip?
- Having been a missionary to Africa for more than 20 years he is a veteran of trips like this and will provide an incredible spiritual covering as well as a constant positive attitude.
- I grew up in Greater Grace from the age of 7 years old. Originally from Boston, MA. My father and I lived in Lenox, Marlboro, and later moved to Baltimore. I graduated from GGCA and attended MBC&S, not out of vision, but because of a lack of any idea of what to do with my life. In Bible college God touched me with a heart for missions. I visited Hungary and Ghana and was overwhelmed. After living in Budapest for 3 years and meeting my wife from France, we moved to Zambia for 5 years. Later we pioneered a team with our parents and 3 children to Malawi soon after and have been here for the past 8 years.
