Two months ago, Kameron and Erin Toews boarded a plane in South Dakota and landed in Zimbabwe to serve at Karanda Missions Hospital. Check out their photo journal below as they give us a day-in-the-life glimpse of ministry and culture in southern Africa.
Pray that Erin will have confidence, patience and humbleness as she goes through orientation in a hospital setting very different than what she’s used to in America.
Pray that Kameron will have an eye to see stories that need to be told around Karanda.
Pray that God will teach the Toews to find their worth in Christ, not in completing a to-do list, and that they will find some good local friendships.
Praise God for the wonderful missionary relationships they’ve been able to build already.
