Dear Partners in the Gospel,
Our family has just finished our fourth week in Dakar, the capital city of Senegal. During our time here we have had new experiences, met fellow missionaries, made new friends, and seen God's grace demonstrated anew to us each day. These were surely four blessed weeks!
Tomorrow morning we will pack our truck with our belongings and head to the port to put it on the ferry bound for Ziguinchor in southern Senegal. The ferry departs tomorrow evening and we will travel over night in the Atlantic along the Senegalese coast and then take the Casamance River inland to Ziguinchor. From there we will drive in to Diouloulou and begin our new life in the village that we have loved and been praying for for over six years.
As we depart we have several things that we would ask you to pray for:
* Safe travels over Friday and Saturday
* That we would begin to get settled in and organized as we set up the apartment in Diouloulou
* For a great reunion with our friends and the believers in Diouloulou
* That from the moment we step foot in the village God would give us a heart to love and serve the people there
Thank you for being a part of our team and for giving, praying, and encouraging us as we serve the peoples of southern Senegal. We look forward to communicating with you soon and telling you of the great things that God accomplished as we serve in Diouloulou!
