april 2011 newsletter

Dear Prayer Partners,

Thank you for praying us through another month here in Niger. The temperatures are rising but God has blessed us with many days that are "cloud covered" & we are thankful that we have yet to feel that scorching April heat where temperatures can soar to 130! We've had a few sicknesses this last month from cold & sinus issues to bacterial infections and even to malaria for our little 2 year old but God has been so gracious to provide us with good medical care, medicines, quick healing, & of course, your prayers!

We are moving into a season of "busyness" this next month and are so excited to see all that God is going to do. We've got national partners taking the Gospel to to their own people in their own language, we've got 2 college girls who are giving up their entire summer to share the name of Jesus with those that have never heard, we've got EIGHT volunteer teams on the horizon who will be doing the same & seeking to help us plant indigenous churches in Songhai lands. We are so grateful for the many of you who pray, give up your time & resources, and come to this side of the world to share with a people you've never met in a language you can't understand about The Person that you hold so dear, our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. You give the Songhai no greater gift than that.

Thank you for those of you who "hold the ropes" for us, our team & the many volunteers & national partners who serve alongside us as you pray for our families, our ministries & the Songhai. Thank you for pleading to God for the Songhai to be saved; that they may know Jesus as their Savior & forsake all to follow Him. Your every prayer for them is worth it & we are eternally grateful. You give us (& them) no greater gift than that.
