Michael is scared but he is able to step out in faith because of the confidence he has in our Lord. He is still in shock that God would even consider using him to help accomplish such an amazing task.
I am encouraged by his heart and attitude and know that God will use him in amazing ways. Please pray for Michael as he begins national culture and language study. He will be living in Senegal and learning French for the next year or two in preparation for his future ministry role. This time is incredibly challenging as language learning, and cross-cultural relationship building is incredible challenging especially in the midst of extreme culture shock.
