Martha and I are presently assigned as itinerant missionaries to West Africa. The mission there is registered with its French name “Vision Intégrale” (meaning a comprehensive or all-encompassing vision). Martha and I participate in two overlapping ministries for the West African region. Both of these ministries can be done from our office-at-home in Alabama. We are helping the Africa e1 team (e1 stands for the 1st phase of missionary training, called: equipping). In Africa, this means helping believers from the local churches who want to be trained and equipped so that they can participate in cross-cultural and heart-language outreach to other ethnic groups that do not yet have a thriving, maturing church. Our ministry also involves translating other resource material into French for these missionary candidates in Africa.
