Good Hurt

    • “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.” Psalm 119:71
    • “…count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”James 1:2-4
    • “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Giving thanks for your friendship today and everyday

  • “…we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost…”Romans 5:3-5
It is easy to get sidetracked by the rampant sorrows, sicknesses, and sins of 2020. At times it may feel like these months have been a total waste. The verses above tell a different story. Trials and the testing of faith teach us to learn God’s ways, to become mature believers who lack nothing, and to be filled with hope. It is counterproductive to let the world’s gloom and doom steal our joy! Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends and ministry partners! Below are a few of our many reasons to rejoice.

Grateful Hearts

  • Joy fills our hearts due to the progress of the Gospel and improving health in Cote d’Ivoire from the hard work of believers trusting in God. By using Community Health Evangelism (CHE) and Discovery Bible Study (DBS) approaches, thousands of reborn lives are being changed by our Savior during COVID restrictions. Praise the Lord!
  • Concerning us, stage three of Verlin’s five-step dental implant was a success. Debbie’s physical therapy has brought a decrease in her foot pain.
  • We are thankful our little longer stay in the U.S. helped our younger son move back to Tennessee and get to stay with us a few months.
  • Your warm and generous reception at church and home has been an amazing gift and encouragement. Thank you for praying to see our return to Africa for four or more years.

Prayer & Praise

  • ????Despite the stresses of this year, we joyfully focus on the Lord’s faithfulness, love, and grace. We are glad to know we have everything needed for a holy and happy life!
  • ????Pray for a return to calm in Cote d’Ivoire and for a real resolution to political problems that cause great division. Our prayers are similar for pilgrims in the United States.
  • ????Pray for medical missionaries who work through exhausting situations, understaffed.
Your Partners in the Gospel,
Verlin and Debbie
