We would encourage you to consider supporting Leroy and Tami with regular prayer and either a monthly financial commitment or a one-time gift. Here is their first newsletter:
When the Lord calls you to a place, it doesn’t matter what struggles you may face, your heart is there. We now feel as Isaiah did: The Spirit of the Lord God has taken control of us! The Lord has chosen and sent us to tell the oppressed the good news, to heal the brokenhearted, and to announce freedom for prisoners and captives. (Isaiah 61:1)
One day a young mother brought her beautiful little daughter to the construction site and just kept repeating “She’s sick” and she was very sick and burning up! We prayed over them, shared about faith with her, and were able to give her what amounted to just $14 for medications that saved her baby’s life. A few days later she returned with a healthy baby, medications, receipts, and even the change to give us. We were able to pray with her again, and believe a seed was planted.
Drissa and Musa were two young men that came every day to the construction site to work with us building the bathrooms for the School of Hope. They worked extremely hard every day and even chose to work along side us rather than play with the other kids. We were so impressed by their character. Since we’ve been gone, these two young men, and about a dozen other village kids, walk the approximate 2 kilometers to the farm to attend church on Sundays. We can’t wait to see them again!
God is on the move in West Africa and we can’t wait to be part of it! We are praying and preparing everyday. We are thrilled to have been accepted as Missionary Associates with AGWM! We can’t go, however, if we’re not sent. We are humbly asking you to partner with us in prayer and by supporting us financially. Please prayerfully consider an amount that you can give monthly to help us reach the lost. Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of others like the young mother and her baby, and young men like Drissa and Musa.
You can make a one-time gift, but please prayerfully consider an amount that you can give monthly to help us reach the lost. Here is the link that lets you make tax deductible contributions using your credit card:
