Faces of Africa

Now that we are home, there are so many things going through my heart and mind after visiting West Africa. To be honest, I am still processing all I experienced.

I'd love to tell every detail of our trip. The highs and lows. It seems that it is just so hard to put it all into words. So for now, here are some of the faces I saw in Africa.

I'll also ask you to pray.

Don't only pray for their physical condition, but more importantly- their spiritual condition.

Pray for Mory, Fatima, and Penda. As they say the words over and over of the Jesus story, pray that they will sear their hearts and be drawn to the Father.

Pray for MC who believes. Pray for courage for him to step out and be public with it.

Pray for Herve who is so close to following the "Jesus road."

Pray for Daryl, Glenda, Rick, Jeanne, Matthew and Luke as they live their among the Manenka people and share the love of Christ.

Pray for Fadima, Fanta, Houwa,

Fatimata, Sidici, and Sudu who have heard the gospel.

Pray for Sudafa and his wife Peina who are the only believers in their village.

Pray for the village of Binkaro. They watched the Jesus film for the 3rd time with such intrigue.

Pray for West Africa. The people are so friendly, so hospitable, so loving, but most are without a Savior.

Kris and I leave today for Kankan, Guinea in West Africa. I would be so grateful for your prayers!

Please pray for us as we travel. We won't actually make it to our final destination until Sunday evening.

Pray for the safety of our kids while we are gone.

Pray for our team that we will be used by God for His glory.

Pray for the people of Kankan, for those who will be ready to follow Jesus.
