Congo Trip Summer 2015 – August 18

August 18, 2015

Dear friends,

We thank God for the tremendous help that David gave us during one whole month, serving others with a humble heart, teaching and showing them many skills. But even more important was the example, sharing with joy what it means to do heavy manual work with ones hands, offering it as a service to the Lord. It’s a real blessing to have Nelson here with me for the two months, a true missionary mechanic.

Bruno and the group flew into Kinshasa Saturday night. They spent Sunday attending church and meeting key people before leaving yesterday for Kikwit in a rented jeep. I met them when they arrived last night. This morning we all drove to Matende together. We got a jeep to take the team. The men and baggage went in the truck. It’s wonderful to have the group here. God is good. Pray for them these next two weeks that He  will bless  and use them.

Thanks for your prayers for all of us here.
