Prayer Request



There is nothing like having the opportunity to be a part of God’s plans.

With that in mind, God has chosen a small team of four (Tyler and Shelbie Brown and Jeff and Tressa Rakestraw) from WestHills Church to go to Botswana in southern Africa to continue our work among the unreached people group, the Bambukushu.


Over the last two years, WestHills Church has travelled into the remote northern region of Botswana to work among a people group that has never heard the Gospel. The remoteness of their location among other factors has kept the Gospel from reaching these people.


 DATES:               JuNE 10 - 22, 2017

 destination:  Etsha village, northern botswana


                             JEFF and TRESSA RAKESTRAW


Our church intends to send 3-5 teams a year for 3-5 years with the purpose of bringing the Gospel to the Bambukushu people in northern Botswana for the first time! Last year we saw the very first Bambukushu people get baptized!!!


During our mission trip June 10 - 22 to Botswana we will enter the small village of Etsha to continue established relationships with the people and walk hut to hut sharing the Gospel. This is a huge step in reaching the Bambukushu who were moved to Botswana as refugees many years ago.

We are building our support team for this mission trip to Botswana and the trips to come. Would you please consider sharing this opportunity with us as the Lord leads you to pray and/or give?  Please start praying now for our team as He prepares us for His upcoming work! And, as you feel led, we would also ask for your financial support. We need to raise 100% of our support by the first of May. The total support we need to raise is $16,000 ($4,000 each), to cover airfare (the largest expense), food, lodging, and ministries on the field.

Financial support is essential to our going on the mission, but of greater importance is your commitment to pray. If you are willing to be a member of our Prayer Team, please send us an e-mail at We will send you updates on our plans and progress! If you are able to give also, please visit our online giving page. We look forward to seeing

what God will do in 2017!
