Knightly News Update!
On the road to Angola Africa...
Here are some ways you can help!
Prayer is the most important part of the ministry. Through prayer you have the privilege of helping those in places you cannot be.
Here are some options for prayer support:
Weekly prayer partner:
(We are looking for those who would choose a specific day of the week that we can know that you are praying for us)
Daily prayer partners:
(those who chose to pray daily for our family and the ministry)
If you have decided you will pray for us please fill out the pledge form, and know that we will be praying for you too!
There are several areas in which you can participate financially. All donations can be sent to Hillcrest Baptist Church, designated: Hillcrest Mission Fund (Pete & Charlene Knightly), if you require a receipt.
When the time comes to travel to Angola we will be looking at somewhere in the vicinity of $12,000 for plane fares to Africa. These will be one way fares.
Goal: $12,000 CAD
We are looking into shipping a pick-up truck, supplies for the farm, along with some household supplies (mattresses/ dishes/etc) in a shipping container. The cost for this will depend on the size we chose to send. If there are lots of donations made for the farm we will probably opt for the 40' container (the difference between the 20' & 40' is $1,500 US)
Goal: $6,500 US
Our target monthly support for living in Namibe, Angola is $2000CAD.
(any excess funds that come to us personally will be directed to the orphanage project)
We do not have a set goal for this, but those who wish to contribute in large quantities can do so to the Hillcrest Mission Fund/designated for the (UIEA)Orphanage.
We will be looking at raising the funds to purchase a diesel 4x4 off-road pickup suitable for the farm.
Country & UIEA Profile
Churches have multiplied in Angola despite (or perhaps due to ) forty years of devastating warfare. When a village was attacked the people scattered, and wherever believers settled they started new churches. The Union of Evangelical Churches of Angola (UIEA) grew out of AEF's ministry in 1914. Their desire is to see the church grow strong, relieve human suffering and evangelize unreached peoples. The church has set their priority for the next few years as urban church planting/discipleship, medical work, education and orphanage. We seek to partner with the UIEA in this effort.
Church leaders are being trained at the Menongue Bible Institute (practical ministry training) and the Lubango Theological Seminary (college-level education). Graduates of these two schools serve churches throughout the nation. Meeting human need takes three primary forms: medical care, agricultural development (which will go hand in hand with the orphanage project) and relief work. The deprivations of war and the proliferation of land mines have produced an endless need for medical ministry. Missionaries who offer agricultural assistance in unreached areas gain a ready hearing for their message of God's love. We will be working together with the church and SIM missionaries on the farm, in Christ's name, to bring stability and faith to the returning war refugees who have suffered so much.
