Wow guys! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve blogged! A ton of new things have been going on. Let me just inform you of a few:
1. I learned how to scale and gut a fish. I’m so Senegalese.
2. After much prayer, I have decided to come back again to serve God for another year in Senegal. I’ll be back in America in July to raise more financial monthly support and should be back in Senegal by September.
3. We hosted our first women’s bible study on campus. Bad news, we were down-wind from where all the sewer waste was. The hot air, wind, and the staunch of poop really hit hard. We need a new location.
4. My friend, M, prayer to receive Christ last week!
5. We rescued 12-day-old abandoned kittens from the harsh, cruel wild known as Piscine Olympique. For about a week I became Cat-Mom. I fed them warm milk out of a zip-lock bag. I gave them baths. I changed out their poopy sheets. Then I got violently ill for about 8 hours. I was absolutely certain that I caught a bug from the stray infested felines. In my desperation and weak voice, I ordered John-Mark to get them out of my sight. So we no longer have kittens. Everyone lies to me and says they see John-Mark and Mary (their names respectively) wandering around our neighborhood being happy little kittens. I hope they aren’t lying.
6. God is showing me more of Himself and growing me in so many ways. I can’t even begin to describe how; we’d be here for hours if I began to explain.
7. We hosted a Youth and Sexuality conference for the students at UCAD. Over 100 students came and were given a book about abstinence and how they can recieve God’s free gift of grace in Jesus. We’re following up with these students to share with them the Good News of Christ in the next few weeks. Pray eyes will be opened to the truth of Christ.
8. We have received a finalized list of people coming on short-term missions trip to Senegal to serve with us. Over 20 students from America will join us in May-July in sharing the hope we receive in when we invite Jesus in as our Lord and Savior. I am excited because I know about 6 of the students coming. Praise God! Two of the staff members coming, Ben and Dayton, STINTed in Senegal for two years (2009-2011). I am excited to have them with us. I already know they will be such an encouragement because of Michelle’s view that Dayton thinks Dakar is like Narnia. I don’t see it, but that’s encouraging that he feels that way about Dakar.9. I love blogs. Sorry I’ve been bad about keeping up with this one. Here’s a few for women that are really amazing:
10. Did I mention that I love you readers? Cause I do.
