Dear Supporters, Family and Friends,
We hope this update finds you well and thankful for your blessings! We are all doing fine. All around is green due to rains every day and sometimes twice a day. Four short-term workers have arrived: Dennis Dickey and his daughter, Mariah, Brian Howard and Nathan Bailey. All are from Muncie, Indiana and are excited about being here and working in the area of the new church plant, Njiro Chini. This past week, Dennis and Brian were tag-team teaching the Gospel of John to the second year students. Mariah and Nathan have also helped Jimmy, Lindsey, and Abigail organize the ACSOP library.
Please accept our apologies for the absence of pictures in this update. There are plenty we would like to include but our time is limited. Today at Kisongo, there were several visitors (6 to 8) attending worship. Many were new workers at the A-Z Mosquito Net factory. Two were neighbors that Heather and Candace invited. These two girls, Tina and Keshia, are boarding in a house behind us with 7 other girls, all who are students at Braeburn secondary school. Jimmy continued teaching the men and women I, II and III John. He also preached this morning on “How Does Scripture Describe a Good Man?”
Awhile back, we had the pleasure of meeting the Director of “Pippi House,” a Foundation for Girls. They are taking care of girls between the ages of 5 months – 24 years. He wrote recently asking if I had any English books (grammar books and any books written in English) to donate so they could have more material in which to practice reading. We have about 50 pounds of books to give them, including many Apologetics Press books and religious magazines and lesson books. What a great opportunity to share the Gospel.
Our sincere thanks to all who have given to our travel fund! $5300 has been received, leaving a balance of $9200. We are hoping to leave in May. If you or your congregation could help us reach our goal, we would be very grateful.
Last year, Jimmy accepted an invitation to speak on the Faulkner Lectureship (March 2-6) in Montgomery, AL. Thank you for praying for his safe travels, plus that of the Stafford Family who have begun their reporting tour in the states.
“If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it. If we rear temples, they will crumble to dust. But if we work on men’s immortal minds, if we impress on them high principles…and love for their fellow-men, we engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, and which will brighten and brighten to all eternity.” ---Daniel Webster
With Love from Africa,
