April News from Mike and Diane
Missionary life is always full of adventures.
The medical team who had planned to come to Sierra Leone in March had to cancel their trip—two members of their team became ill just prior to their departure. But all is not lost. We rescheduled their visit for January 2020. Having that bit of a hiccup caused us to think about this need. And there’s lots. If you have any doctors or nurses in your church, please share this opportunity with them. They will be ministering both spiritually and physically at the military hospital in Freetown. Not only will they see many come to know Christ, but many lives will be saved.
We have a praise to share. In February we told of our need for assistance in shipping a container. We had filled four large storage units with supplies for our schools, churches, the military hospital, and general ministry. We received $6,100 toward this project. We am truly grateful for the response. This will cover the cost of shipping and a good portion of the customs.
Please pray for our Easter services as well as the military seminar scheduled for the first week of June. This will be our seventh annual conference. We are expecting at least 600 participants from the military, police & fire force, metropolitan police, and correctional officers.
Last month our churches saw 101 professions of faith. We read in Luke 15:10 “… there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Thank you for your investment in our lives and the ministry of Sierra Leone.
