I want to thank the Lord and praise Him for all the wonderful friends who share the burden of the work here in Burkina Faso. Through the years you have been faithful to fulfill the mandate to send us here, to hold us before the Lord in prayer, and to sustain us in our personal as well as project needs.
This evening I am particularly rejoicing over what God has done in and through the St Agnes Church and their school, St Agnes Academy in Massachusetts. Through the initiative of a very dear friend, Sister Linda Wilk, the school and the church held ‘a Giving Tree’ fund raiser and in less than two weeks raised over $8,000 for our school and orphanage. This is truly a gift that will keep on giving and giving as we sow into the hearts and lives of our children here in Burkina.
I met Sister Linda many years ago when she came to Burkina with a team from Operation Christmas Child. She has become a faithful personal friend to me and a faithful supporter of Sheltering Wings.
And finally, the Lord is allowing her to return to Burkina this summer and she is bringing two of her friends along with her. Hmmmmm, I am smiling in thanksgiving for what the Lord has done and in anticipation of seeing my friend again!
