Hello! 
My name is Andre Mercer and I am a member of Southeast Christian Church. This year Southeast has decided to do four mission trips. These missions will take place in Wyoming (Wind River Indian Reservation), Arizona (The Crick), India (Chickballapur), and South- Africa (Johannesburg). 

Justin Wallace, Emilie Wallace, Austin Baker and I will be taking part in the South Africa mission!

We will be going to South Africa to assist Marilyn Cook, Connie Wicks, and their fellow Aletheia team as they help with the local daycares, orphanages, schools, and youth programs.

While there, we will be giving our personal testimonies, teaching lessons about Christ and being a Christian, singing songs, doing crafts and games and also aiding with the feeding programs along with any other ways we can help their Christ-based ministries. 

We hope we will be able to serve as God has commanded us to serve and leave a lasting impression of God's grace and Jesus's sacrifice and love.

 


This campaign is to help raise funds for my plane ticket to and stay in Johannesburg. I ask that if you donate you only what is in your heart as any amount is appreciated. 

The plane ticket is the majority of the cost and the rest of the cost breaks down as followed

$1800 (Airfare)
$110 (Passport)
$220 (Medical Shots)
$100 (Gifts and supplies for Connie and Marilyn)

If you have any questions, wanna talk about this trip, want to learn about Southeast Christian or learn about our other mission trips feel free to contact me at:

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. - Psalm 121

A time to be restored!
 
After coming back from our furlough at the end of October, we had our special “Sausage Roll Day” the day after I got home and fed 1000 children – a big day for them. Then came our Christmas special for them, new T-Shirts that say, “Jesus is my Good Shepherd” Psalm 23. Again this was a day of 1000 children.
 
Then came the bridal shower for my granddaughter, Rachel, in Johannesburg, end of the year for Kid’s Club and students with Kholofelo.  The Wedding for Rachel and Jason was 22 December and 24 December we were all back at my farm for the holidays – 24 of us, tapering off as the week went on. The wedding was beautiful and the family at the farm were so special.
First of the year and it was getting students back into tertiary education – 13 of them. Then shopping for school children for school clothes – around 200 of them. That took 15 trips to the shop with about 20 or more each time, in the heat of summer with no air conditioning in the store.
 
Then to Johannesburg at the end of February for preparation for Rebecca’s wedding – I got to be there for the final fitting of her beautiful dress and was one of the witnesses to sign the marriage register. Rebecca and Claudio had a lovely wedding on her father’s farm on 24 February.
Then home for Kid’s Club on Wednesday. Thursday, I just stayed home and slept. As I continued to feel tired and weak, I had various doctor’s appointments and finally saw my own doctor late in March who diagnosed vertigo, slow heartbeat, anaemia. My ECG was clear, but I was obviously tired and run down. So, I have been practicing resting more, eating beef liver, spinach, eggs, etc. and now I am taking advice and having a daily walk of 10 minutes and will build up on that time. I am feeling much better and just praising the Lord! Cathie and I were discussing Meringa, a leaf from a tree that is rich in all the vitamins and minerals and decided we would try it. We put about one-fourth teaspoon of crushed Meringa into a cup, poured in boiling water and had a nice tea. 30 minutes later I began to break out and was soon covered with hives and my throat was getting very scratchy. So we rushed off to the hospital for treatment – and I am now fine! Cathie had no reaction to the Meringa nor has anyone else they know of. But – now I know!

Thankfully, all this time, Godfrey and the youth carried on with Kid’s Club and the Students have continued their studies. Godfrey is not only leading the lessons, he is teaching some of the other youth to teach the children. We have some great leadership developing. Kid’s Club is still full of children rushing in for their songs, story and peanut butter and jam sandwich and milk – 300 to 500 each week. Bible Studies are still well attended with around 50 of the smaller children and 15 of the youth. Please keep them all in prayer for understanding and a love for Jesus. Pray for our leadership!
“Praise the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me praise His holy Name!”
 
In His Service,
Marilyn
