We are delighted to be home again after 18 months of absence. The river, that is usually dry when we travel, was swollen with water, so the trip to Boudamasa was a little more interesting than usual.
The kids are especially enjoying connecting with their friends.
We are enjoying the visit of my two nephews, Josiah and Elias. Pray for their good health during the next two months!
Praise the Lord for our newest teacher, Roland, and his wife Colette. They were recruited after the school year already started, and have moved their family to Boudamasa, because a previous recruit couldn't make the move.
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.
