The last 24 hours have been extemely intense for all of us, but
the Lord is IN CONTROL! What the enemy means for evil, the Lord
uses for HIS GLORY!
In the midst of all this chaos and uncertainty, we had a meeting
at the church here in Paris last night, to celebrate LIFE. I shared
a little about Mali, and what Cliff will do, before he came up to
preach. He brought a powerful word, and many lives were touched
again. Many gave us testimonies of what the Lord had done in their
lives the night before. Glory to God!
The pastor shared with the congregation the difficult situation
we were in, and the people started giving generously. The additional
costs for Cliff's ticket were more than covered! May they receive
a rich reward on earth as well as in heaven!
Cliff now has all his tickets, though the dates have changed. While
I'm flying back to Mali tomorrow (Wed), Cliff is taking the plane
a day later. He is also leaving Mali 5 days earlier than planned,
meaning he won't go to Koutiala to preach at the YWAM school.
Please pray for another potential problem that was just brought
to my attention - that he'll be able to get into Mali with his visa,
even though the date on it is not correct any more.
Today I called my friends in Mali and found out that Emmanuel's
bus had an accident yesterday, while he was on the way to pick up
the car we'll use in Nov. He was unharmed, but somewhat in shock.
Tomorrow (Wed) he is driving the car to Bamako, a 650km trip. Please
pray for his protection!
We're in a fierce spiritual battle - please keep us covered! So
that the name of the Lord would be known in Mali, and His kingdom
come in power to destroy all the works of the enemy and make HIS
name great in our nation!
Serving & loving HIM,
