april 2012 newsletter

Dear Prayer Partners,

Thank you so much for yet another month of prayer support for our family, our team & the Songhai people! Although it was a month mixed with sicknesses, a 7 day training retreat & a week of vacation, we have seen God's hand mightily at work through your intercession. The believers in Ayorou, who are facing a famine, are continuing to be bold in their faith & lead others to Christ. Hank*, our beloved young brother in Niamey, is still holding strong in his faith even amidst persecution. Those along the Namarou road are growing in leaps & bounds as they are being discipled by our national partners. The Kingdom of Christ is advancing among the Songhai & we are so thankful that God has led you to prayerfully support them as you call out to Him to save the lost & strengthen the found. We continue to pray alongside you that His sheep will hear His voice every time the Gospel of Jesus is boldly proclaimed among the Songhai!

On a family note, many of you have prayed for Mark's father who battled an unknown illness & was bound to his hospital bed for over 2 months with no end in sight. We are beside ourselves with joy as God once again proves He can do the unimaginable. Mark's dad is being released tomorrow & has made a huge recovery! Thank you for taking the time to not only pray for the Songhai each month but also pray for our families!

that ALL may know HIM,

Mark & Parker <><
