Trip to Mali

I wanted to write a few days back about my trip to Mali but I didn’t get around to it.  While there I was able to visit Missionary Dwayne Harrison and his wife.  We also visited a national missionary named Francis.  Living Water Baptist Church (our church in Burkina) supports him.  He has done a wonderful work in a country that is 92% Muslim.  Last Sunday he told me that they had 65 or so adults and about the same amount of kids.

Because he is  a national missionary and doing a good job, my heart is really touched to help him.  I was talking to Francis about the current land situation.  We could build a church building where he is currently meeting, but space would be greatly limited.

He has done a great job getting to know people in the government.  He asked them why all the reserve land is given for Mosques when they are a free country. They have proposed that they would sell him four lots.  Each lot will cost $3,000.  I really don’t know how I can help him, but I am going to do all that I can because I believe in him and I know that Mali need a strong witness.

    Let’s put this need out on the Africa ring and on all of our prayer letters and see if we can’t raise him the money. Then we can all make a trip there and see him once Vicente has landed. I will help, at least. Please send me pictures of his church so i can start supporting him through our church. Aaron
