The Coffey Family November 2020 Prayer Letter

We’re Home!

This past month we received notice that because of the type of South Africa Visa we possess, we were now allowed to return to South Africa.

We secured our plane tickets and took off from the Atlanta airport on November 3rd around 9 pm. We landed in Cape Town, South Africa on November 5th around 1 pm after a 12-hour layover in the London airport. Pastor Mvume met us in Cape Town with my vehicle, and we drove the 8 hours back to Camp Rhino.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. We are so glad to be back home.

We attended services at New Life Baptist Church and Vision Baptist Church this past Sunday. Things are going well there and we were very encouraged to see that several people stepped up to fill in the gaps that we left back in April.

Please pray for wisdom in our next step. We want to start another church but are not sure about the location or the timing. In the meantime, we will continue working to strengthen our existing churches.

Prayer Request & Praise

  • Travel Expenses- We are very grateful for the $1000 that was given towards the cost of getting back to South Africa.
  • Wisdom concerning Junior and Teen Camps in December and January at Camp Rhino. Covid is still a major worry here. We want to figure out the best way to hold camps without stirring up too much trouble with the government.
  • Please pray for our missionaries that are serving in Africa with Vision Baptist Missions who are currently raising monthly support. We need many more laborers for a continent of over 1.3 billion people.
  1. Graham & Olivia Young – Nigeria- The Young’s have just started their deputation and are at 15% of their needed monthly support. We need many more laborers for a continent of over 1.3 billion people.
  2. Nate, Emily, & Azariah Wilkerson- West Africa- The Wilkerson’s have been on deputation for a little over a year now and have over 80% of their support.

Quick Updates

  • Our 4th church plant has officially started. There has been great interest from the community despite the Covid concerns.
  • $5,000 has been given that can help toward the $15,000 to finish the new boy’s dorms for Camp Rhino. This will enable us to have a capacity for at least 120 campers and counselors.
  • We need donors for our camps this year. This cost is about $55 per camper. We are trying to raise 120 sponsors for Teen Camp and 75 for Junior Camp.

  1. I pray always as soon as they send me your news. My husband and I have had missionaries in our home for sometimes a week at a time from all over the world. To me they are the cream of the crop.
    At Rosedale I think they put the missionaries in a home that they have purchased. I am 87 and am n poor health with emphysema and other problems from falling in my home and breaking some bones. I still go on line and get sermons from Pastor Tewell and from my son who was District Superintendent
    Rev. Dr.Jeffery Norris. He is now lead pastor at Buckhannon Alliance Church in WVA. His precious wife died about 2 years ago. My husband (my soul mate) died last year and I miss him so much. My daughter and my three grandchildren live with me. All my children and grandchildren have asked Jesus to come into their hearts but they are not following the Lord. I think our children are so spoiled in America and I love to hear when missionary’s children are working with their parents to win souls. My grandson Johnnie has been in depression since his father left the family years ago.
