We are in the process of making final preparations for going back to West Africa. We have booked our flights to Burkina for July 14.
While we have been home we’ve had the opportunity to speak at dozens of prayer meetings and small groups in the UK and North America and we believe people have been encouraged and challenged as they have seen what the Lord is doing in West Africa. We met a lot of wonderful people along the way.
On returning to Africa, in two weeks time, our immediate goals will be to get our vehicle back on the road, help a new missionary family to get their bearings in Burkina, and then travel to our village in Ivory Coast for a month to complete some checks on the book of Luke that we translated into the Loron language last year.
After that, at the end of August, we plan to begin a 3-month trip to various locations around West Africa. We hope to visit our missionary teams who are working in Senegal, Guinea and Liberia.
We would appreciate your prayers as we finish off our time here in the UK and as we return to where the Lord has called us to serve Him. It’s going to be difficult leaving family and friends again, but we know the Lord will give us the grace to cope when we need it most.
Thank you for your prayers and interest.
Continuing by His grace,
Paul and Marina
