Missionary Spotlight

Jeff and Patty Borden, South Africa

Jeff is a teacher and facilitator at the Bible Institute of South Africa (BISA). There has never been a Bible training school in his specific area. His goal is to provide training school in the context and at a minimal cost. Most pastors in these areas have NO training at all, and many are hungry for Biblical training.

Two of Jeff and Patty’s children have been diagnosed with fairly serious health problems. Their oldest son did not cope very well in the US and is returning to South Africa. Please pray for his transition back to South Africa and for the Lord’s leading regarding his future. Their second son, Matthew is a senior and intends to study biology next year at Virginia Tech. Please also pray regarding his future. Their daughter Lydia has Celiac’s Disease (gluten intolerance), pray for her.

Please pray for Jeff’s wife as she prepares food regarding Lydia’s dietary restrictions (no wheat, barley, rye or oats). In South Africa, there are not very many ready-made gluten-free products available so this can be problematic.

Lastly, the past month has been very difficult for the Borden family. Please pray for some much-needed rest. .
