Back from furlough… I am still alive…

We were in the states for about 5 and half months and I kind of took a break from updating. God greatly blessed our time there but we are excited about arriving back in Burkina Faso 10 days ago. While in the states we were extremely touched by how churches and individuals have been so faithful in loving and supporting our family. We have been able to report back to some churches that we haven’t been to for 13-14 years. I have heard many times, “I have prayed for you every day/week since you were with us”. What an honor it is to be so loved. I truly feel like I am the most blessed man in the world.

The work continues in Burkina Faso. From the reports that I have been receiving the churches are advancing. It is always and encouragement to see how God uses these churches and the pastors in such a mighty way. Please pray for us as we transition back. One of the most difficult things is trying to fit back into the ministry that God used us to start. I will need take time to access where we are at physically and spiritually. I hope to be connected to internet next week sometime and soon thereafter begin to lay out some of our plans and goals for the next few years. I have been privileged to see God work in so many mighty ways but I don’t want Him to stop. I want to see God do more.
