Coffey Family December 2021 Prayer Letter

Prayer Requests and Praise It’s great to be home.  We arrived back in South Africa on December 2nd.  It was great being back for my son’s wedding, but not so great leaving my daughter Emilee there for Bible College.  We can already tell how difficult it will be not having her around.  Please pray for […]

Prayer Requests & Praise Please pray for all of our churches.  South Africa went back in another lock down where no public gatherings of any kind were allowed for the past month or so.  Instead of canceling all our services, our churches met “underground” at least once a week, but thankfully we are able to […]

New Missionaries to South Africa

It is undoubtedly a special privilege to announce that my son Chase and his fiancée Ashley, who will marry on October 11th, have announced their call to South Africa as full-time missionaries. Needless to say, Amy and I are ecstatic. We have been hoping that the Lord would allow at least one of our children […]

Coffey Family May 2021 Prayer Letter

2020 was the year we planned to open up Camp Rhino to year round camps.  Unfortunately, those plans didn’t work out like we wanted for obvious reasons, but 2021 is looking much brighter.   We held our first teen and junior camps in January and just finished another teen and singles camp at the end […]
