Furlough 2016

Dear Circle of Prayer,
 
We are now in the United States on furlough and enjoying being with family and friends and grandkids.  Sadly, shortly after our arrival, Keith’s mom Bea fell and broke her hip.  She is now in rehab following hip replacement surgery and doing well.  Please pray for the whole Honey family.  Bea missed being with the family for Thanksgiving, but we hope she will be home for Christmas.  We are so thankful that we are here and able to help the family at this difficult time.
 
Before leaving for furlough, we turned in our paper work for renewal of our work and residence permits.  We are confident that if God wants us to continue our work in Botswana, He will provide these permits.  Please join us in praying that these necessary permits are granted swiftly and for a longer period than just 3 years.  We are eligible for 10 years and pray that God will grant us 10 years.
 
Finally, after many years of preparation and waiting on governmental permission, Keith was able to open the Trucker’s Chapel.  It is being manned by some of the young evangelists while we are on furlough.  This is giving these young people a place and opportunity to share their faith with the many truckers who pass through Kazungula.

Now that we are stateside, we look forward to connecting with our many supporters, family and friends.  We have some very exciting projects to share with you.  The Lord has been opening doors to some dreams that may be finally coming true. 
 
Being here during presidential election has been a joy.  In years past, we have voted overseas, so to be here to cast our votes was special.  Our prayer for America is that we can return to the faith that so profoundly shaped this nation, bringing about the peace and unity so earnestly desired.
 
Last week we were able to attend the ECHO conference in Fort Meyers, Florida and were richly blessed to see old friends and meet new ones.  The classes and demonstrations were beneficial and instructive as usual.  Such conferences are valuable for the establishments of linkages that will help move the ministry forward. Keith is excited about meeting an Oklahoma State University agricultural professor who is interested in sending students to Botswana for internships.
 
As we travel during this furlough, we pray you remember us in prayer for safety and for opportunity to share about what God is doing through us in Botswana.
 
In His Love,
 
Keith and Robin Honey
