Fellowship Meeting and language school

In January, we had a pastor’s fellowship meeting. It was the first time since we came back from furlough that we were all able to meet together. It was a sweet time of fellowship, and I was also blessed to be able to challenge them from the Word of God. It is amazing to watch what God is doing with these young pastors. It is a great honor to be able to train them and watch God use them. I can think of nothing better in the world than that.

I have started back in language studies. Rebecca and I are attempting to learn a tribal language. The first day, I had flashbacks of 2001 when we were in France. They weren’t pleasant flashbacks either. I really struggled to learn French. Rebecca was able to speak and converse in 4 months, and I couldn’t even understand what she was saying. Some people have a gift for languages. I obviously don’t have this gift, but with hard work and God’s help, I will get it. God has called some young men from our village work to preach the Word of God and I really want to talk with them and train them without an interpreter. I told the church that in 2015, I will preach in Mooré (the tribal language).

The picture below was taken in Roungou. I was able to preach to them on the bad news and then on the Good News.

    So thrilled that there are people willing to help the children of your area in these tough economic times. Looks like you are making good progress with the school. Your ministry seems to be going well, too. God bless you and all your workers and givers.
