Going well

We arrived in Burkina Faso two weeks ago.  I quickly realized why I love this place.  It definitely isn’t because of the heat.  It has been  challenging the last few weeks adjusting to the climate.  The rains will come soon and it will be much better.  It isn’t because I love the dust and dirt.  I truly didn’t realize how dirty this place can be.  I guess after many years you don’t notice it. But just coming back from the states, it is dirty.

The real reason why we love being here is what God is doing and what He has called us to.  Things are going very well.  The churches have advanced, especially Living Water Baptist Church.  I told Pastor Konate if he wanted me to leave and start another church, that I was willing to.  He said, “no, I still have much to learn”. He is doing a fantastic job. There are so many possibilities in the near future it is amazing.  Please pray that God gives us wisdom and His strength to accomplish what He desires.

I haven’t written because of our internet connection.  I borrowed a small wireless modem but it is slower than dial-up.  We have been able to e-mail but not do much on the internet.  We are awaiting the internet to come to the house.  It has been a week and a half.  Maybe next week.  I will update you then on more of what God is doing but I wanted to let you know that we are alive and well.  Thanks for your prayers and your faithful support.
