Yesterday, we went to Roungou.  My in-laws are here with us right now.  So Bro. Tim Land went with us.  Normally, we go on a Friday night or a Sat. morning but today we had our first Sunday morning service in this village.  God blessed.

I have talked about Salif many times in the past.  He will be going to the village and leading the church.  It is exciting when the young men that you are training begin to hit home runs.  The people love Salif and he loves them.  I told Salif that it was up to him to take the church to a new level.  He is a great young man.

I tried sleeping under the stars last night but it got cold about midnight.  So I chickened out and slept in the church building.  I was broken last night thinking about the thousands villages that need a Gospel preaching church here in West Africa.

    Let Salif know we will keep him and the work there in our prayers. It is truly a blessing to see God at work and truly humbling to realize the task He has allowed us to be a part of.

    It’s great to see how God is using you to reach the people of Brukina. We are praying for you, Salif and the guys in the bible college.

    Sleeping under the stars sure does causes one to think about God and this world. I layed under the stars once, but fell asleep for 2 hrs.-my roommates not knowing where I was! Keep up the good word there. The vision you have for West Africa is greatly encouraging to others. May He bless you.
