Everything is well at our house. K., the Community Health Evangelism (CHE) ministry partner who watches over our rented home office, property, and dogs said COVID is rarely mentioned anymore in Bondoukou. As a result, he expects to relaunch the Discovery Bible Study (DBS) with 30 to 70 neighborhood children this weekend or next. He continues to mentor and encourage four young men who use DBS with teens and adults. That started during the pause with the children. The Lord greatly assists him!
- Our Ivorian pastor’s wife, who suffered a stroke and other serious health issues last year, reached a milestone in late December. She prepared a meal for her husband with no help from others! The process requires much more strength than most American women need due to our multiple gadgets in the kitchen. We rejoice at our dear sister’s progress! The Lord greatly assists her!
- Another CHE leader in western Cote d’Ivoire requests prayer for their challenging work in an area where most of the population holds firmly to another religion. The Lord greatly assists them. They pray for more wisdom, boldness, and fruit.
- After a couple of days of phone calls, paperwork, and errands, Verlin successfully sent money to Bondoukou for ongoing maintenance needs there with a fourth money transfer service. The funds sent will likely suffice until we get back to the field. The Lord greatly assists us, even with mundane and time-consuming tasks like cash transfers. We also praise Him for our uneventful healing from COVID.
Prayer & Praise
- 🙏 Thank the Lord with us for good news from ministry partners in Cote d’Ivoire and for the tenacious labors of love that CHE teams do all over West Africa.
- 🙏 As most of you know, the Nashville bombing appears to have been a one-man suicide bombing with no future threat to Nashville. Continue to pray for the many who lost their jobs and businesses in the blast.
