Becky's newest book,
A Bruised Reed: Memoirs of Africa Orphans and Their Rescuers, is now available in our store.
What others are saying about A Bruised Reed:
"If you have ever wondered why missionaries do what they do in abandoning the comforts of home and blazing off to another continent, country, and culture, this book, A Bruised Reed, answers that: it's the children. Yes, of course there is the call of Jesus, but the children keep calling to them even across the ocean. I have trained nearly a thousand missionaries and have contact presently with hundreds more, but I have never heard or read a more compelling story than this one lived out by my friends Tracy and Becky Spencer."
John T. Hollar,
Christ for the Nations Institute
"A Bruised Reed is a book that will capture your heart and challenge your spirit. Becky takes us into the lives and homes of orphans from Swaziland, reminding us that God often expresses His love and care through us. We cannot ignore the needs of those around us, whether near or far, because all are precious in God's sight. These pages brim with the hope of transformation and the honesty of hardship and heartache. You cannot help but be encouraged, challenged, and inspired."
Eric Wilson, NYTimes bestselling author of Fireproof, October Baby, and Samson

Many in eSwatini are challenged to get food during the road blocks and travel restrictions, topped by drought in some areas. A pass is required to get through. Thankfully, our ministry partners, Joshua and Belinda Chawa, can take food because as a nurse, she has a pass.
We're increasing the funds we send monthly for food to help individuals who are desperate to eat.
Thank you for helping.
Because of covid-19 travel restrictions/road blocks in eSwatini, Africa, we made the hard decision to cancel our summer trip.
Praying we can return in January, 2021.

Organizing GSM Swaziland and Preparing Living Quarters for Missionaries
(Note: schools are closed, and our church hasn't yet reopened because of social distancing and screening requirements. Please pray that cases of covid-19 quickly decline. Good Shepherd Church, in a rural area, doesn't have access to online services like we have here at home.)
Now that Shepherd's Care Home and Little Lambs Preschool are completed, and Good Shepherd's Church is meeting regularly on the site, our next project is a big step of faith towards what God is doing next.
We're building a two-story structure that will make good use of the space and be cost-efficient.
The first floor will provide much-needed office space. The reception area will enable us to hire a receptionist/secretary to organize stacks of files waiting for attention. She or he will also keep track of doctor and dentist appointments, employee evaluations, applications for the preschool or employment, etc.
This will keep visitors away from the children's living quarters and will cut down on interruptions at the preschool.
Another area will provide a conference room that can be used for trainings and interviews. Children who have family members approved to visit them will also make use of the conference area, because we don't intend to have any visitors in the residential area on site.
Our supervisor, Mpendulo Ngwenya, will also have an office to allow him to separate his administrative duties from his time ministering to the children in the home.
The second floor of this structure will be living quarters, with two bedrooms/bathrooms on opposite ends and a shared living area and kitchenette in the center. This is where the big step of faith comes in, because we know in our heart of hearts that the Lord is surely calling someone to serve with GSM in eSwatini. Until the Lord sends someone full-time, Tracy and Becky plan to spend more time there, and once this is built, they could stay for two or three months at a time, twice a year, enabling them to be far more effective in their ministry to the children, staff, and others.
Please pray for this important part of the ministry! It doesn't tug on our heartstrings like direct service to the children does, but it's still necessary to make the direct ministry possible!
THEN: Since Shepherd's Care Home is now full, we will begin work on the next care home once the office/living quarters are completed. We will eventually have a total of 12 homes, but one at a time.
And when the second one is done, as funds become available, we hope to begin work on the elementary school. The goal is for children who have been through the preschool to be able to go straight to elementary school on site, ensuring an excellent education will continue for them. We hope to add at least one classroom every year to stay ready for them to move forward.
These are God-sized dreams! But the only major need to see them come true is the funding. So we would love to share in churches and at Christian events.
The large conventions will rent a booth or allow a ministry to be the main sponsor, but that can run from $3,000 to $6,000 and more. If you have a divine connection that might open a door, or if you can help us fund a convention, you would help us serve more children.
And of course, we would be delighted to share in your home church, women's retreat/convention, or event! Contact Becky for more information.
Even with such great need, we are encouraged because others have partnered with us. If you are one of those “peculiar people” Jesus has purified to Himself, zealous for good works, we want to hear from you! (Titus 2:14)
