Pray through these needs and consider sharing them with others of your choosing so that many brothers and sisters in Christ can take part in this ministry. We are here in Africa on the front line because those who pray and support this work make it possible to be here. They will be amazed when they see how many came to Christ because they partnered with us in this work for the Lord, and will receive a great reward from Jesus when we all get to heaven.
In John 15:16 Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.” We are asking you to pray and fast for help to meet these needs because we believe the Lord wants Gospel For Africa to bear more fruit.

Pray that he gets a scholarship, which is the best way, or funding to allow him to go to MIT or another top tier school of engineering.
We now live in the interior of Côte d’ Ivoire. Since the war in 2011 Muslims have been pouring into the region where we now live. We minister in the national language of French. The new Muslims speak languages we do not speak yet. Pray for effective ministry to all of the Muslims.
