We have arrived in Freetown, Sierra Leone! On February 20, 2021, we climbed down from the plane onto African soil. God granted us smooth travels and multiple, negative Covid19 tests, allowing us to continue to our residence and granting full mobility throughout the city. Since landing here two weeks ago, we have been learning our new home by exploring the city and joining the ministry work. We received our shipping container safely and our belongings seem to be fine!
Currently, Shaun is leading services at a local church plant, and our children have begun attending Sunday school class. We are thrilled to share the salvation of one young man after our first service there! Just this past Sunday, the church had a new visitor. We give the Lord praise for these two men and our family’s welcome by this body of believers.
As we continue forward in the work here, please specifically pray for the following:
- Renewed evangelistic vigor for both the national pastors and local believers
- Our family and Shaun’s extended family as we mourn the loss of his mother and rejoice in her presence with the Lord
- Our family as we adjust to a new home, culture, and ministry responsibilities.
