Arriving into the United States on the 2nd of September, we have managed to live what seems to be a lifetime within a little over one month. It has been no secret that 3 September was our 50th wedding anniversary and our family spoiled us to the max by planning an absolutely perfect open house at our home for family and friends to attend. Clint, Jes and Shauna’s gift to us was an Old Town canoe! Upon our arrival to our home from the airport the garage door slowly opened to reveal this HUGE blue canoe hanging in our garage with a hand-written note on it, “Happy Anniversary!” Yes…we have already used it on one bright sunny Colorado day when everyone in the family brought their canoes, rafts, paddle boards, fishing poles and of course grills to enjoy a welcome home fun day.
Living in a time of acceleration and of urgency to see souls won for Jesus and for many to experience His love and healing, we approach each day intentionally with Holy Spirit guiding us. It seems we have shared Jesus’ love at every turn just through kindness. Visiting our family and friends during September has been paramount this month. Now we depart to the west coast, then return through Wyoming to visit Jeff’s brother and family, then home in Colorado for a few days, to then drive to Texas and Missouri to visit longtime Afrika Wa Yesu friends of the ministry. We look forward to connecting with you as we travel. What a privilege to be in the USA sharing about Afrika Wa Yesu. We are grateful for internet and methods to stay connected with our MZ family friends to bring you the latest news from Mozambique. Our lives are full whether we are here in the USA or in Mozambique with His purpose for that day, week, moment …. the joy of Kingdom living means there is never a dull moment. Pastor Aaron Lucas of Citipointe Church Loveland stated, "Vision moves at the speed of your obedience." We have learned that no matter how small it seems, each move in obedience brings you closer to fulfilling your call.
Thank You Friends for your prayers for Afrika Wa Yesu, the team, the nation, the north of MZ under brutal attacks of terrorists, our family and ourselves. We are covered, joyful and look forward to seeing you over a cup of coffee or in church somewhere. Long time connections are important and valued!

Together for His Glory!
Jeff & Nicky Reetz and all of us at Afrika Wa Yesu
