As hot season begins to slow us down we are thankful for:
- swamp coolers
- His faithfulness
Saturday we plan to drive to N'djamena so the kids can do some annual school testing. Meanwhile, I will come back down to Boudamasa with a team from the US that is coming to give our school teachers an agricultural seminar. I'm excited to see what they bring!
Then after another week in N'djamena we plan on returning as a family.
Please pray for a seeker in town who has been visiting one of our school teachers regularly and reading the New Testament.
Above is a recent agricultural seminar we held with the teachers and their families in Boudamasa called "Farming God's Way". Pray that these people woul embrace methods that will build soild and improve their livelihoods.

Life and ministry in our Chadian village looks like something like this:
Bagirmi Creation Book
Our friends and neighbors are hearing the story of Creation and the Fall in their own language in our newly published Genesis story book. For many children and adults, this is the first book they have ever held, and certainly the first illustrated book they have ever seen. The story of God starts here, and continues in the lives of the this un-reached people.
Our fourth year of the Gethsemane school is beginning--with a new school building! We are so grateful.

The Word gives life! So we continue to work in Bible translation as needed. Currently we are facilitating a "Story Project", to teach Bible stories to local people that they retell naturally in their own languages and record for distribution.
