We thank God for the gift of Ethan! We have enjoyed watching him grow and change and marvel at how much progress he made. As we held a party for his birthday it was fun to see our whole family now interacting together in French since most of his friends speak French more than English.
Paul, one of the new believers at our church, wanted more Bible training. Our church was able to enroll him in 6 month YWAM Bible training here in Senegal. We prayed for him as a church as he went out and we look forward to see what God is going to do in his life during this time.
The end of last year was a financially stressful time on top of all struggles we faced. Yet God directed two people to send us gifts that lifted that burden. It was a special reminder to me that God is caring for us and we just need to keep trusting him because he always provides. We are so thankful for all the members of our support team, because without them our ministry here wouldn’t be possible. God is Good!
I had a language evaluation last week and both my language helper and I felt like it went really well. I don’t have the results of the evaluation, but it was encouraging to see my progress even from my last language evaluation which was only a few months ago.
Becca, Joel’s Sister, arrives tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited. We are taking the boys out of school for a workshop in Dakar, where she will lead the kids program. We are looking forward to the break from normal life and the fellowship this week will bring!
