A first tonight.

I saw a first tonight. I have seen this done many times in America but not here. The Burkinabe missionary to Mali is needing to change locations. We had already decided to help support him each month, but we wanted to help with his building. He wanted to build a hangar from wood and tin. The tin would cost about $200 and the wood $64. I felt lead to announce to the church that we wanted to give $100 for the tin. They were thrilled. Remember that we are in the process of building, and I want the church to pay for the roof on our building. John Cooley, another missionary, was present for the service and gave the other $100. Then the Pastor who is preaching the conference said that his church would give the $64 for the wood. I have never seen this before in Africa. It was a first and I am glad that I was there.

    It’s great when a plan comes together.
