It is our desire to make an impact globally, serve locally, and invest deeply in God’s people and we would love to have you on this journey with us!

 

We are super excited about the work God has called us to and we know He has not called us to do it alone. We are seeking a team of partners that will help with meeting our financial support goals, praying for us, coming to visit us, and connecting us to others who may be able to partner with us as well.  In order to move to South Africa, United World Mission has determined that we need $8,900 per month for salary, housing, transportation, medical, taxes, kids schooling and all of our ministry expenses.

Will you consider being one of our monthly financial partners? 

You can give to our ministry directly through credit/debit (3% fee for card transaction) or echeck (direct deposit with no extra fee) by clicking on the link below.

Also, if you know of someone else that might be interested in hearing about what the Lord is doing in South Africa please email us at spanky.rouse@gmail.com. This is a big goal and we need to share with as many people as possible so referrals are greatly appreciated.

 

Will you pray for our family regularly? 

The kids thought it was fun to make this alphabetical list to guide our family through prayer as we prepare to move. We take seriously the need for prayer and wanted to share our list with you. Some are practical, some are personal, and some are kind of funny; But all are on our hearts, and we would love for you to pray along with us.
