Swaziland Mission Begins!

The Swaziland team has arrived safely. Steve Estes was also able to join the team, a little late, but with no known mishaps. Thank God for everyone's safe arrival.

They have already begun working. Pastor Bill Gross has reported that they were able to visit an orphanage/church in Tembo with 22 beautiful children and a pastor with a big vision. They were quite inspired and look forward to meeting more of the people of Swaziland.

The purpose of the team is to find the right partnership for Hope Chapel in our long-term vision of reaching out to the orphans of Africa.

The Swaziland team is
  • Ron & Ann Marie Elmore
  • Steve Estes
  • Pastor Bill Gross
Please keep them in your prayers for: Health, safety during travel, wisdom and discernment, team unity, and favor with those whom they meet.

Please post comments to the team to encourage them and let them know your prayers are with them.

More to come! Stay tuned.


  1. I'm so glad you all arrived safely and I pray that God does mighty things in and through you! It sounds like you've hit the ground running and that you've met some amazing people already. I can't wait to hear more about your journey.

  2. Dear Pastor Bill, Steve, Ron and Ann Marie,

    It's amazing to think that there are 8,000 new orphans every month in Swaziland. Whatever you do in these circumstances will truly be a magnificent gift to these children. Go well and do well!
