Hello Friends & Ministry Partners!
The past weeks have brought the heat of the dry season as well as its many complications for the residents of Sierra Leone. Power outages and water shortages touch everyone. Additionally, drastic fuel price increases and inflation have led to panic, strikes and protests, and now a deficit. Even so, ministry continues.
At church, we celebrate the growth of the discipleship class from two to sixteen people, and thank the Lord for continued visitors as well as the stalwart faithfulness of many within the church. Personally, our family is encouraged to witness the difference Jesus continues to make in the lives of those at New Beginnings Baptist Church.
Additionally, we have recently begun an outreach to a local women’s center. Christin, with the help of Kaitlyn and Kameron, visits each Monday afternoon with an activity for all to enjoy. As is common in Sierra Leone, these women represent a variety of tribes, spiritual beliefs, and languages. By spending time, showing love, and building relationships, the goal is to introduce these girls and women to Jesus.
As we continue into April, please continue to pray over the following:
- Continued discipleship of current and new believers
- Ongoing property search for a new church plant and sports ministry
- Outreach to the women’s center
- Peaceful resolution to the current situation in-country and wisdom as we continue to minister during these challenging times.
- Upcoming Easter services
