To think it was a year ago we first heard about Sahel and their need for more staff. A year ago we were freezing in Canada sending out emails inquiring about Sahel. Not fully expecting any of it to happen. As God would have it, He provided above and beyond so that we could join the team here and it has been an amazing experience.
As we attended the Spiritual Life Conference a few weeks ago, we were reminded and encouraged about why we are here teaching at Sahel. We are supporting many others who are teaching literacy and sewing to adults, others who are translating scriptures, others who are providing medical care for fistula, malaria, and maternity patients, and still others who are working with orphans. It is amazing to see the work that is going on in this area.
This past week we have received the staff needs list for the following year. We ask that you would join us in praying for God’s provision of staff. It would be great to have short term and long term commitments. Pray for the funds to come in for those who are interested in coming. Pray for the many details that they will need to take care of. We are excited about what is in store for Sahel.
I will continue to teach the fabulous kindergarten students. Stacy hopes to see some construction begin to take place in the next year and the girls will carry on in their school studies. As you will see from the list, there is not a teacher for Rebekah for next year and many teachers are missing in the secondary school. We are hopeful and excited about how God will answer and provide. He already knows who is coming and what the next school year looks like, for that we are grateful.
