Saved: Fall 2005
Resident: since May 2006

Paul stopped by occasionally while living elsewhere, and moved all the way into our neighborhood in the summer of 2005. He dedicated his life to the Lord and started Bible School in the fall of 2005, which he completed with an Associate degree in 2008. At our first anniversary service end of November 2005 Paul was baptized in water. Paul has become an indispensable part of our team, and now is my right hand man. His primary task used to be interpreting into Bambara, but now he is my assistant, a father to the children, and pastoring the churchplant in the village of Dra.

Saloum was one of the neighbors' kids. His violent father used to beat him up, and constantly threatened to kill his firstborn son. When he first kicked him out, his Muslim neighbors forced him to take back his son. The second time, Saloum sought refuge with us again and stayed. He is a very intelligent kid who loves to learn.

In January of 2009 Saloum moved out of our house and back in with his family. In August 2010 he returned to our household when we employed him as our day guard. In November he became our driver. He goes to evening school to continue his education.
