Quick update

The Lord gave us a great day.  We went to Roungo this morning.  Our numbers were low and I hope that this isn’t normal but many were trying to get their crops in.  When the crops are ready so are the animals.  If they don’t work when they can, they can lose a good bit.  We also had youth meeting tonight.  We didn’t have a ton but we had a good spirit.

I wanted to tell you a funny story.  My missionary friend, John Cooley, has a new work a little bit outside of Ouagadougou.  The other night, they were taking prayer requests.  One man told about the problem with going to church on Wed. nights.  When they leave their houses unattended, many times theives will come.  They think there is one in particular. He asked prayer that God would the kill the thief.  The beauty of the African mindset.  Actually, when they catch a thief here, many times they will kill him.  I am not talking about the police or military but civilians will beat them or stone them to death.
