Dave and Marj Patrick

Dave's Story

Our Call To The Ministry Was In 1990 After A Missionary Conference. I Read A Pamphlet By Pastor David Hill Entitled: “Hearing The Call Of God”. It Was After Talking With Pastor Hill And Understanding The “Seven Steps In Hearing The Call Of God” That I Responded To His Call For Us To Go To South Africa.

God Used Phil. 2:13 To Confirm His Call On Our Lives. “For It Is God That Worketh In You Both To Will, And To Do Of His Good Pleasure.” Several Members Of Our Church Also Confirmed His Call On Our Lives. We Are In The Center Of His Will And We Cannot Be Happier Doing What He’s Called Us To Do.
