Reconnaissant

   Reconnaissant…French for thankfulness. The month is flying by as we continue to see God leading us down the path to Togo. God has blessed us in many ways the last 30 days, many of which I will share today with you. We ended the month of June with our first church presentation of our ministry in Togo at Petal-Harvey Baptist. We were able to meet great people and partners through that opportunity.

On July 9th, we spoke to Pleasant Hill Baptist, a small country church filled with mission-minded people on fire for the lost in Togo. Marci and I are blessed to have partners in both churches and are excited to see how God will use our partnerships to reach unreached Togolese with the Gospel.

One thing I want to share with you all for this month is the power of prayer and giving has had on Marci and I’s lives, thus far. As some of you know, we are not only in the process of raising partnerships and funds to go to Togo, but also raising money for a tractor which we are in the process of purchasing in Togo. We were able to work a payment plan with the man selling the tractor and its attachments and we were able to raise the first payment of $5,000 by the end of June. Over the last week of offerings and special gifts we now have $3,400 of the $5,000 needed by the end of September! Marci and I are humbled and blessed by those who have given towards this goal. God has showed us once again, that if we trust in Him and in His plan, He will provide all that we need. The purchasing of this tractor and attachments, which is already in Togo, will help us in one more way of building churches and building the VBS sports camp safely and efficiently.

We ask you to pray about partnering with us in prayer and in financial investment.

This month we had the opportunity to share with our church VBS kids about our ministry in Togo and the needs of the unreached peoples there. We had a grand time serving the kids French-made cookies that are served in Togo and my favorite drink, bissap. Bissap is a replenishing drink made from hibiscus flowers and added sugar and water. We drank this after working long hours in the sun building the church outside Aneho, which helped replenish our bodies so we could continue our work. The kids at VBS asked many great questions from us and we were happy to share with them of life there in Togo and what our ministry is going to entail.

As you know we started the construction of the church outside Aneho, in January-February when we went on our vision trip, and we are thrilled to announce that the church is complete enough to have had their opening church celebration in that village on Saturday! The impact was incredible, 110 Togolese accepted Christ as their Savior! We are humbled and amazed at God’s great work He is continuing to do in Togo and cannot wait to arrive to serve full-time to continue God’s good work which He has started there. We ask for your continued prayers and partnership with us in our goal to reach unreached peoples with the Gospel.
