Senegal November 2012

I am back in Senegal again with a mission team from my church, Forest Hill. This trip we are assisting the village’s church by teaching the church members stories from Genesis and how they point to Jesus. This is valuable to the church because until very recently the Old Testament was not translated into Serere and many people do not know this part of Scripture.

As I write, we are driving from Dakar to Thies and the trip has been incredibly smooth so far. Our planes were on time and the wait times, both during the layover and during the flight, seemed to fly by. Everyone got through customs and to the bus without any issues. I am thankful to God for all of this and for providing such a relaxing way to begin our mission trip.

The verse I continue to hold close to me for this trip is 1 Thessalonians 2:8.

We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.

I pray that the people in the village do see how much we love them.

    I spoke to Carol a few minutes ago to wish her a happy birthday. She was happily awaiting the arrival of Michele and her mother and the kids.
    All is well on this side of Colorado.
