One of our "Randy Day Missionaries"
Personal bio: My name is Jeremiah von Kühn and I’m a sinner saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I grew up in Ridgefield, as the oldest of five children. I graduated from Clemson University (South Carolina) and was a banker in North Carolina beginning in 2006. It was then that I experienced God’s powerful grace through the Gospel. Since 2009, I've had the privilege of serving in KwaZulu- Natal, South Africa. God has given me a passion to proclaim the saving message of Jesus Christ crucified and Risen. My interests include reading, traveling, good coffee, playing the banjo (bluegrass music), visiting orphans, and enjoying the outdoors.
Mission work: Since 2009, I've had the privilege of serving as a missionary in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. During my first year, the Lord used me to assist two missionaries (Paul & Kristi Passaro of Chapel Hill, NC) in revitalizing the Bonginkosi School, a Christian preschool (ages 2-6) for underprivileged Zulu children. The new school facility has been running since April 2009 with over 90 children in regular attendance. Praise God!
Beginning in 2011, the Lord opened a new door for me to serve on the University of KwaZulu-Natal campus with a ministry called The Bible Talks. My focus is on preaching and teaching the Gospel, leading Bible studies, discipling students 1to1, and evangelizing students on the campus. I'm thankful to the Lord for opening this door to proclaim His Word!
There is a chance I will be visiting the States as early as April 2012. I'd love to share a presentation/slide show about my experiences. I will let you know when I plan to be in the States. Thanks for offering me the opportunity to share what the Lord is doing in South Africa!
Tori's Mission Trip
In October Tori Mason headed to Townsville, Australia for Youth With a Mission’s (YWAM) Reef to Outback Disciple Training School where she took classes for over two months with about 50 other young adults from all around the world. During that time they also did some local outreach. They spent a week in Aerlie Beach where they witnessed on the streets during the late evening hours. In December the group spent two weeks camping in the Outback growing closer to God in the peace and beauty of His creation.
In January Tori’s Outreach team went to Papua New Guinea where they have been involved in several outreach ministries. Her team has spent time in Port Moresby working with the Living Light Four Square Church in their school programs, in the medical clinic, in leading youth nights, and in feeding 500 street children.
The team spent time in Gavuone where they prayed for the sick and witnessed many healings. They also led many people to Christ.
In the most recent update, they were in the village of Hula where they walked along the coast from village to village praying with the people for healing, preaching the Gospel, and building relationships within the villages.
Tori’s team will be heading back to Townsville for two weeks of debriefing before she returns home mid-March. Please continue to hold Tori in your prayers. We are looking forward to hearing about her life changing experiences!
