Over the past 3 years that Tidiane has been sleeping on our base nearly every night, we've seen his life transformed by his faith in Jesus. He was baptized, and now his time has finally come to become a permanent member of our family. This is his story.

We've set his birthday to June 28 (the day he moved in) of 1997 (estimated). He was born in Fana, where he was growing up a regular boy, starting school at the age of 7 which is the customary age in most of Mali. He was the firstborn of his father's second wife (he divorced his first wife). After about a year and a half in school, he leaves school because his teacher is so mean. His family is not happy about that, and sends 9-year-old Tidiane to a family in Bamako to work as a shepherd. He works there for less than a year before he leaves because his boss's son is so mean. He goes to the bus station where meany street children live and joins them, and survives by gathering metal to sell. One time his family finds him and takes him back home, where he needs to work hard. After one month, he gets beaten severely for spending 20 cents on food, and so he leaves again - for good. He lives on the street for a year before he comes to our base for the first time (in May 2009). At that time we'd go out at night and invite them to our base to sleep in a safe place. Since then he's been spending his days begging for money on the street before coming to eat and sleep on our base at night. He's very much looking forward to starting school in fall.

If you'd like to become Tidiane's sponsor by sending $40 or 60€ per month and being in touch with him by email and skype, please let me know.




Purchasing that urgently needed truck a few weeks ago was a bigger expense than our budget allowed, moving us into the red quite a bit. So we're asking and praying for donations to make up for the additional $6000 that were spent there. Any and all amounts given are welcome and received with gratitude!

We're also thankful for our two new triple-bunkbeds ($250 each) so that we have room for more children again. The kids love the top level!



  •       Summer Schedule - I've started teaching the kids on a daily basis so they can improve their French; I include them all using fun material meant for kids. We're all having lots of fun (except for when the power is out).
  •       Power Outages - Rainy season is in full swing, and unfortunately that means lots of power outages as the overcast sky prevents our solar panels from working at maximum efficiency. The other day we were without power for 24 hours. It seems ironic that we have actually finally connected to city electricity, but it seems that our system does not accept the quality of electricity coming in. We will have to wait until August when the missionary friend who installed our system can come to have a look at it all. Until then, we'll have to keep going without power for hours on end... as long as I don't have to throw away the contents of my freezer again, it's just a matter of adapting.
  •       Political Situation - There's nothing much new to report since last time. Things are moving forward slowly towards a military intervention in Mali, with more and more green lights appearing. A green light from the UN is expected soon.
  •       Dealing with Government - The military coup and constant changes in government have caused us a fair bit of trouble as well. We've had to submit the same papers several times (and pay again), and still haven't received the much-needed papers that used to be a formality in the past. In addition, we were told that because of the al-Qaida linked groups in Mali, the government has decided to reduce the number of registered organizations in Mali. Please pray for favor so that we get all the papers we need.
  •        Construction - On hold.
  •       Book Translations - My book is being translated into German and French right now. The German translation will be released before Christmas; as for the French we have to pay $2,000 for the translation, and then have a publisher accept it. Any help with that expense would be very welcome.
  •        Back to School - In August I'll be going back to school for 6 weeks to get further education and certification to fullfill all of what God has called H2TNI to be and do. Originally we were going to have a volunteer in Mali at that time; now Paul will need extra prayer again during that time while he leads the ministry in Mali without me.
  •       Volunteers - We don't have any volunteers in Mali right now, even though we really need a few; if you'd like to come help us, contact me.


Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! ... Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Phil 4:4, 6)
