past few weeks in the US the Lord has been giving enormous favor
for the sake of His work in Mali, connecting me with people and
opening doors with great potential. From the very beginning I've
said that I'm only a little girl at the hand of a big Daddy, and
I knew I'd just stand by watching in awe how He does it all, and
that's the way I've been feeling.
all those great things happening, and the awesome things ahead of
us, the enemy is not sleeping and has devised a plan to destroy
a previous email I told you about the 4 girls we had visiting us
in July, and how they got sick. One of these girls is extremely
angy and upset and determined to do everything in her might to cause
us at least harm or close us down if possible.
has contacted the French authorities in Mali to get them to do an
inspection of our center. I believe she's after hygiene in the kitchen
since she blames us for getting sick. They wouldn't believe me that
none of our visitors had gotten sick before.
French authorities might pass it on to the Malian authorities, and
my concern is primarily that we do not have our legal papers for
the children's center yet. If they come in for an inspection, they
have every right to close us down.
pray for the enemy's plan to be shattered, that we'd have favor
with the authorities, and for protection for our center and my seven
children. Please forward this email to all
the intercessors you know. I know that God will prevail,
and His will will be done.
have talked to Paul today and alerted him to the situation. I told
him to bless these girls, to forgive them, and to pray blessings
over them, so our hearts would stay pure and not get offended.
- There are some serious problems among the children
right now, involving at least 3 of them. Please pray for wisdom
for myself, and for those kids to have an encounter with God,
to know the fear of God that leads to repentance and holiness.
Believer - On the upside, yesterday a former prison inmate
came to find out more about the Lord. While in prison in Algeria,
somebody gave him a New Testament, and he read it. He was intrigued
though he didn't understand it. Paul shared the gospel with him,
and with tears in his eyes, the man confessed all his sins, and
accepted Jesus. Praise God!
has moved in with us permanently. Our village pastor is glad to
be rid of him because there were some serious issues. Pray that
the Lord would heal him and transform him, as well as the pastor.
Miracles - The 6 American kids that came over in May
have done an amazing job raising funds for our building project
this summer. I love this new on-fire generation coming up! They
have raised the $16,000 needed for us to finish
the wall. Praise God! Now we're waiting for the money to be transferred
so Kossi can pick up work again, with the kids helping him until
school starts. Construction stopped a month ago for lack of funds.
October 31 - Other people have also given generously
- thank you all - and now we need another $49,000
to finish the first building we want to move into on October 31.
The solar power system is another $35,000, and the solar panel
supplyer needs $20,000 by the end of September
since a container for Mali is leaving then. Nothing is impossible
- There is a possibility of me going to England. If you are located
in England, please send me an email.
weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which
rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage
of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,”
says the LORD. (Isa 54:17)
