Dear Pastor and Church Family,

We are soon approaching our one year anniversary here in the Ivory Coast. This past year has brought many changes and much joy into our lives. The Lord has been good to us in many ways. We have seen His hand of protection and provision and are thankful to be in His will.

I would like to share a recent blessing with you. My neighbor here in Anyama, who is originally from Burkina Faso, has several flower plantations from which he exports flowers to different places in Europe. Consequently, he employs many men from his homeland who work for him out in the field as well as guards who work at his house. About three weeks ago, one of his guards whose name is Jean (in English it is John) knocked on our door and asked if he could speak with me. As the custom is, I invited him in, gave him a glass of water, and asked him what the "news was." He then began to ask questions about what we believe. So I gave him my testimony of how I got saved and gave him a tract to read and a New Testament and told him that if he had any questions, just to come over and we could talk more. Two days ago he came over and showed me Romans 3:10 and said that he knew that he was unrighteous and that the Catholic church did not offer any satisfying solution to his sin problem. It was obvious that God had been working on his heart and that he was under conviction. Praise the Lord that after showing him God's solution to our sin problem, Jean accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. After praying he said, "this is exactly what I have been looking for!" He came to church and has started a nine lesson new converts program. Because of your faithful prayers and support, this man is able to enjoy the blessings of salvation and will spend eternity in heaven with Jesus.

Please continue to pray for the following prayer requests:

1. Good health and safety for our family. (This is a season when there is a lot of malaria cases)
2. Spiritual growth in the lives of new converts
3. The need of more laborers for his needy field
4. The need for more good Christian books in French for the Christian library

Thank you for your faithful prayers and for your faithfulness in supporting us financially. We know that it is because of folks like you that we are able to do what God has called us to do her in the Ivory Coast. May the Lord bless you greatly in return.

We will be moving to Abidjan, so please note our change of address:
