Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

Dear Prayer Supporters,
Thank you for your faithful prayers for our family and for the Zerma over the years, and especially in 2017. We have a few dates with requests for you to lift up in January. We will resume our calendar format in February. We will be traveling for most of January, which we will explain more about in February.

December 30-January 8- We will be attending a meeting for IMB missionaries. Pray for a time of great fellowship, time in the Word, worship, and prayer.

After this meeting is over, Phil and I will be celebrating 27 years of marriage by taking some vacation time and enjoying our first cruise. We will enjoy sharing more about that with you all in February.

January 10-Thank you for praying for the kids that attend kids clubs. Our church’s Christmas Eve service in Niamey was well attended. What a special blessing it was to see one of my former kids club kid, attend this service as a young, married woman, along with her 4-month-old daughter. Pray for “Nafisa” to return to church again. Praise God that His word continues to work on the hearts and minds of those who have come to the clubs over the years! God is so faithful!

January 12-Pray for those that attended a large meeting in December to celebrate Christmas. This event was organized and hosted by the ministerial association of Niamey. Pray that the theme of love, reconciliation, and peace would be the reality and future of Niger.

January 15- Pray for Phil as he meets with Pastor “B” weekly for Bible study in the book of Acts and mentoring. Pray for Pastor “B” to take what he is learning from the word and apply it to his life and teach others these same truths.

January 20-Pray for Pastor “Adam” as he is running his shop, which sells items such as flour and sugar. Pray that this shop would provide the needed income for him and his family.

January 23-We will be back in Niger and diving right back in to ministry. Pray for our boldness in speaking God’s love and truth into the lives of all we come in contact with among the Zerma.

January 27- We’ve been consistently faced with requests for money and help with physical needs since our return. Pray for us to have wisdom in knowing when, where and how to best help. Pray for us to feel confident in our decisions when it is right to not help or when help really isn’t needed.

Thank you for holding the ropes!
Happy New Year 2018! May your year be filled with joy and peace!
