On February 27 we got married at Randy's church
in Eupora, MS. We had a lot of challenges
in the days before the wedding. Crazy weather in the southern US
meant our flights back to Mississippi a few days before the wedding
were canceled repeatedly. We finally made it home.
Then the pastor's flight to MS was canceled, and he had to purchase
a new ticket. Two days before the wedding Mississippi had record
snow that meant no power for days... in
our case for the 48 hours leading up to the wedding. I had to take
a flashlight to copy my wedding vows off my battery-powered computer
onto paper. It threw our plans. Thankfully bridesmaids and
groomsmen all made it. And since one of my bridesmaids
chose to take a hotel room in Eupora where electricity was already
restore, I got to have a hot shower the morning of the wedding.
the morning of our wedding our photographer's son had
to go to ICU (thank God he is fine), and we had to scramble to find
another photographer. There was also some interrelational
challenges casting a shadow on our day. In the end, it
all worked out just fine.
the audio and video quality is not great, we are happe to have this
recording of our livestream of the wedding. The
actual wedding starts at minute 33:

at my church in Vienna, Vienna Christian Center. We had
a wonderful time with my family and friends.

- On his first day in Mali, Randy went to our village
church with Paul. He prayed for an unbeliever who had
a softball-size tumor and saw the tumor shrink
under his hand. The man then gave his life to the Lord. Other
people also got healed and saved. Praise God!
Activities - Tomorrow Friday we're doing our Street
Kid Easter Party. On Saturday we're having our Easter
service. And hopefully we can take the kids to the swimming
pool on Monday, as we didn't go last Christmas.
- Fanta has been diagnosed with STD's as well
as a tumor in her uterus. Her husband comes to
visit her on our base every couple of weeks for a night. Please
pray for her, and for her husband.
- Our little 3.5-year-old non-resident boy had two half-sponsors
and lost one. Who would like to become his half-sponsor
for 20€ or $30 per month?
Video - Professional producers have made a new promotional
video for us that you can watch on our YouTube channel here.
King - Patricia King is coming to Mali
in June, and Bruce & Cheryl
Lindley are heading up the team that is going to come with her
to minister in Mali. If you'd like to join their team,
here for more information and to register.
Truck Needed - We're currently spending hundreds of dollars
to get our truck repaired that hs been sitting broken down for
months. Our only working truck also keeps breaking down. We desperately
need a new Toyota pick-up truck, which unfortunately
costs as much as $40,000 or 30.000€.
- We always need volunteers in Mali who can stay a
few months or more. If you'd like to come help us, please
For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and
shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.
