AFRICA

Dave & Laura, Administration/Support

  • On home assignment, thanking churches and supporters for holding them up in their work

  • They return to the field in January and will have new teammates when they arrive

Jeremy & Joy, Church Planting

  • This is the dry season, bringing the nomads back to their area. Since these folks have never heard the gospel before, are under spiritual oppression, and are broken and blind to the truth, Jeremy & Joy desire to bathe their interaction with them in prayer, they ask us to join them in prayer for these people
