In 1981 Jerry and Mavis Nkosi moved from South Africa to South Dallas to follow God’s call to “build a ministry that would serve as a beacon of light in an otherwise dark and dreary place.” They started Urban Action with a heart for reaching children for Christ, and 36 years later, at 87 years of age, Mavis continues the work of evangelizing and being “Grandma May” to the local children that enter the door of her apartment ministry. Our Dallas mission teams have the privilege of serving alongside of May and providing the volunteer enthusiasm and strength while she provides the heart and faithful direction.
Please pray for the effective ministry of Urban Action, her children Howie and Lena who assist her, and specifically that Grandma May would enjoy the fruit of her years of ministry.
Psalm 92:12-14 But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the LORD’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. They will declare, “The LORD is just! He is my rock!”
