In Africa we call this a "tribe"! The Harding tribe!


They do grow up and we do grow old but we love it!  Maybe not the “old” part!


We give thanks today for all that God has provided for us and our family. As we launch into this new year with all the opportunities and challenges, we know that God is with us and He is the one that brings us great joy.

Drew and Janna and their five girls are thriving in life and ministry in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Bill will see Drew, and granddaughter, Kelty in Ethiopia next week.

Ryan and Melissa and their three have landed well back in the Charlotte area after a year of ministry in Australia.Ryan is engaged in insurance and Melissa in teaching and editing. Pray for their eldest daughter, Selah, as she heads to Guatemala on a mission trip.

Kara loves the opportunity she has to nanny the four kids of Kyle and Margaret and working Juice Plus with Grace.

Kyle works at Bank of America and Margaret continues on as a nurse anesthetist at a local hospital here in Charlotte, NC. Kyle is known as the “swing man” putting up amazing swings and zip-lines in his back yard which all kids love!

How Can You Be Involved?

Please Pray For:

  • safety in long hours of travel

  • preparations of hearts of thousands that will hear the Word of God shared at the Yirgacheffe Bible Conference, the Harding Bible School and the Butajera Training Center.

  • That our own hearts would be sensitive to the The Spirit of God as the team declares the power of the gospel in their own lives and as the Word of God is preached.

  • those who will receive Christ for the first time and the many who will rededicate their lives to the Lord for His glory and His service.

  • the many that are struggling with the idea of peace and reconciliation in the context of previous ethnic fighting.

Grace and I send this to you out of a sense of gratitude to the Lord and to you for your friendship and support for our family and ministry. Would love to hear from you!
