Last week I was spoiled in Missouri. Besides getting to spend time with friends who I haven’t seen for 3 months, I also got to meet more missionaries! My week-long trip back to NTM’s Missionary Training Center in Missouri was spurred on by the fact that I would be able to attend “Field Fair.” For Field Fair, New Tribes missionaries serving around the world congregate to share more about what God is doing in their part of the world. So I got to meet several people who are currently missionaries in West Africa, where I’m planning on going, and they taught me much.
One of the things that I learned is that there are three tribes that NTM wants to start working among soon in the area shown on the map to the left. I may work with the Bolon, Ble, or Natyoro tribe! There are many other tribes in West Africa that also need to hear the gospel for the first time (the red spots on the map below), so I’m not positive where exactly I’ll be working. It is exciting to have a little better idea where I may be headed, though.
Thanks for continuing to pray for me as God raises up a team of prayer and financial partners for me and as I prepare to leave for West Africa!
