Back 'home' in Burkina!



Throughout the past three weeks here in Burkina my mind has repeatedly returned to the wonderful times of rest and refreshing that I recently enjoyed with family and friends at home. While passing through Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts I saw Jesus living in his people and shining in your faces. Thank you for your sweet hospitality and for precious moments of chatting over a cup of coffee or tea.


I am very thankful for precious times with my family and for the memories that we made together. And, I am greatly encouraged by the time spent with each of you who are laboring with us to bring the Light of the World into our little corner of Burkina.


Although so happy to be back in my Burkina home I am already tentatively planning another trip home in the Spring. It is hard sometimes to deal with a heart that is 100% in Burkina and 100% in the US, but I am so thankful that the Lord helps me to work through these heart issues and that his grace and mercy are new every morning.
