Feb. 1, 2022
My friends, Thank you for your years of faithful prayer.
Everyday these last 2 weeks has held a miracle and an answer to your prayers.
Last week I received my passport back in less than 10 days (expect 30) with a visa for Sierra Leone. Yesterday I went to the Liberian embassy (in Minneapolis) and after the first person telling me NO on a visa, a second person randomly asked me some questions that he generated and I walked out 22 minutes later with a Liberian visa.
I have a plane ticket for the end of the month for Haiti and am struggling with plane ticket organization for the Africa trip.
I have a new young man to mentor in a church in western MN. Oh, what a great story of how God led us together. I interviewed another young man today from southern MN and waiting to see if he would like to continue.
Another church called searching for a youth pastor and another church youth pastor that is transitioning out called for help.
We have enough money if no more comes in this year to do all that God initiates. We will obey. I have always believed money is one of the tools that God uses to open and close doors.
SO please pray…..
