Last week Joel traveled down with our leadership team to visit one of the villages we have missionaries working in. Here are some of the highlights of his trip.
Crossing Gambia – This is Joel’s first time to head down to the southern half of Senegal which requires crossing a river surrounded by a separate country. They left Dakar at 2 am to try and beat the madness, yet even arriving so early it was still quite the adventure. There are only two small boats that across the river and LOTS of cars who are fighting for a spot. It is a story you will have to ask him to tell sometime.
Visiting One of the Villages We Work In – It is one thing to hear and see pictures about where our missionaries are working, but it is quite different to see it for yourself. It is always very exciting!
Talking Strategy – Joel got to listen as the team members and leadership sat down and talked strategy. He really enjoyed hearing the discussions and gleaning from the wisdom that was present there. The missionaries who are there are coming to the end of their language study and it is exciting to start to talk about strategies of how to share God’s word in their context. It seems like there are always barriers and struggles to overcome, but we serve an amazing God. Pray with us that there will be a strong body of believers worshiping God in their own language!
A Great Chance to Get Pictures For You!
