I'm so thankful for partnership! It's necessary for bringing in the great end time harvest. I believe partnership was Paul's vision when he wrote Ephesians 4:13, "Until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, into a complete man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."
My part isn't enough. Your part isn't enough. The part of our missionaries or our church planters isn't enough. But all of us doing our part, energized by the Holy Spirit, that will be enough. Glory to God!
Jean-Claude will travel to the field again this week. He will minister at the services of the Robaye's 20th anniversary of their ministry in Chad. He will meet, again, with leaders of the work in Chad and with ministers serving the Fula in that region. You helped purchase training resources for 50 leaders that Jean-Claude will deliver, as well as resources for a children's school the Robayes founded.
After the time in Chad, Jean-Claude will minister at a few venues in France, hoping to share the vision for the Fula Project.
Then, Jean-Claude will attend a conference in the nation of Mali for workers serving in Muslim nations in West and North Africa. The leaders of the conference are old friends from our Africa missionary days who have served in nations such as Mauritania and Algeria. They are making a significant impact in closed nations and we are privileged to be connected to them. Jean-Claude will deliver SD cards of teaching material to those leaders, and share the vision for reaching the Fula in their nations.
Meanwhile, our courageous church planters living and working among the Fula in Gambia sent these recent reports:
Three people gave their lives [to the Lord] at Tintinto after a personal one-on-one evangelism and were water baptized a week after. The joy is that two of the old visitors accepted to be baptized with them. I pray the revelation of God for them to remain. ~Kofi
God did great things in a village called Kassakunda. Old people in that village promised to turn away from idol worship and turned to God. They all gave their lives to God. 60 salvations. ~Paul
Sam reported 21 salvations in February!
Alexander reported that 5 people have been taken through discipleship training.
Jean-Claude is scheduled to travel, March 22nd-April 9th. He will minister in three nations: Chad, France, and Mali. Please pray for Jean-Claude according to Ephesians 6:19, that he will boldly declare the Gospel.
Pray for Alexander, Alkali, Daniel, Kofi, Paul, Sainey, and Sam, our church planters in Gambia, according to I Corinthians 16:9, for a great and effective door to be opened to them.
Pray for the Fula new converts according to I Corinthians 16:13, "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be bold like men, and be strong."
And please pray with us for strategy and resources for the Fula Project, according to Psalm 24:7, "Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in."
We so need your part in this great missionary effort!
