In 1991, we went to a country in West Africa. We lived among an unreached least accessible, minority people group. Although enduring many hardships, by God’s grace and the prayers of many, we are in our 29th year. Reaching out in a variety of ways, we have seen God at work in deepening relationships with the people. They have communicated their trust by coming to ask if Rick would begin to teach them about the Bible. Years have passed without visible change, yet God has been at work! Today, outwards signs of God’s grace are pointing to extreme decisions being made with life & death consequences – both eternally and within the culture!
For the Jesus-Followers to grow in unity, strength, and love for each other as well as their community.
For the ministries of soccer and farming and schools to reach many with an invitation of love.
For wisdom given the context where we live.
For our connection with the Partnership Team here in the States as well as our family with a college-age son, married children, grandchildren, and aging parents.
