Hello Friends & Ministry Partners
After the busyness of the holiday season, we have enjoyed the return of a regular routine throughout January and February. Even so, most weeks we have welcomed multiple, first-time visitors to the Sunday services and rejoice in the growing attendance of Wednesday night Bible study. This is particularly exciting to witness as Shaun continues challenging the church to BE THE CHURCH.
February brought a special guest: Christin’s father. He visited for ten days, and in addition to family time with us, participated in the church’s “game night”, Saturday afternoon evangelism/outreach, and church services. This month, which marks our one year anniversary here in Sierra Leone, is a sweet reminder of God’s sufficient care of our family as we continue to build a life in West Africa and learn the nuances of ministry here. As we continue scheduling outreach events with the dual goals of increasing church involvement in evangelism and saturating the Babadorie community with Jesus Christ, we delight in 1200 gospel tracts distributed, two positive responses to Jesus Christ, two young men registered for discipleship, and the best attended “game night” to date (57)!
As we move forward into our second year in Sierra Leone, please continue to pray over the following:
• Continued discipleship of current and new believers
• Ongoing property search for a new church plant and sports outreach ministry
