I’ve just returned from going back to Mali to check on the self-sufficiency project, as we have it in “sleep mode” for the duration of our furlough (August 2013 to August 2014).
I walked away convinced that I need to get back there by the end of June 2014, in time for the planting season, rather than the normal end of furlough in August 2014. Our missionary colleagues (Tom and Jenni Keating, Glen and Karen Smith) who have been helping us keep things going will all be leaving in just a few months for their required furlough in the USA.
The success of the agricultural program demands direct supervision. So I have to get back there as soon as possible. Please pray for extraordinary financial provision and an increased number of commitments of support so that AGWM would clear us to go back by the end of June 2014.
