Kick off to the new church at Pissila

Salif has been with my family since the beginning of our arrival in Africa.  He started out as our night guard in 2002.  He was born into an Imam’s house (Muslim leader) and trained to be an Imam himself.  In 2004, he trusted Jesus as His Lord and Saviour.  He has stayed faithful all these years.  He has been leading the work in Roungou for the last three years and doing a tremendous job.  He has graduated Bible college and was ordained about a month ago.  He has moved with his family to Pissila (a town near Roungou).  He will be leading a new church plant in this very needy city.

A group of about 15 will leave this afternoon to help kick off the new work.  We will go door to door during the day and preach at night.  Please join us in prayer Thursday night thru Sunday morning as we desire to see people saved and a church birthed.  There is much religion in this country but not much true Bible preaching.

It was a little sad to see Salif move away since he has been around us for the last ten years, but I am proud of his dedication and love for the Lord.  I wish you all could meet him face to face.  He is one of the best men I know in the whole world.
