Who Are We
We should be jealous. . . for the honour of His name – troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed. And all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due to it.” John Stott

So, how's the support going?
Many have asked about how support raising is going. We're currently at 40% of our monthly support (with 34% already coming in). We also have 39% of our outgoing expenses raised.
Also, the 39% does not include the monthly support that's already coming in. The monthly support that's already coming in goes towards current ministry expenses and also outgoing support. So, in reality, the 39% is actually much higher.
The past few months have been very exciting. Our monthly support has gone up 12% since the beginning of the year and we also had $23,000 of one-time gifts that people gave in just one month!
Please continue to pray for our support. And keep an eye on the financial section on the right side of the blog that lets you know how our support is going (you may have to scroll down some).
I would like to close this post with a verse and a thought. In 3 John 5-8, John discusses the need to support those who have gone out for the sake of "The name". In verse 8, he says, "we ought to support such people, so that we become coworkers with the truth." The phrase I want to highlight is "coworkers with the truth." For those of you taking time to support us by giving, praying, and keeping us in your hearts by wanting to hear about us, you are coworkers alongside us in Senegal. It's not my ministry in Senegal. You play an irreplaceable role in what God is doing in Senegal, all done for the sake of His Great Name.
