I am home

Hello everyone. I am here and almost settled into my house. They had to do some repairs so it took a little longer to get in then I planned but everything is there and it is as clean as it can be which means dust everywhere. I have seen a few people in town and I will start going to the villages either Friday or Saturday it depends on how tired I am after driving from Niamey to Konni and then Konni to Guidan Roumdji. The roads are really bad right now as they are doing construction, lots of detours, missing parts in the road, and of course the pot holes. I have visited with a few friends in town this week. Ali, my night guard, wife had a baby boy while I was gone he is so adorable I have some pictures I am going to but on my blog and facebook page. They are all doing well I have sat with them a few times this week, it was so nice to come back and speak fulfulde (Full-full-day) again I did not realize how much I missed it until I was able to speak it again. My other night guard Ibrahim, his wife also just had a baby, I was invited to the Buki, baby naming, I was told that it started at 7:30 in the morning so I went at 7:30 and when I got there it was already over but the baby is very cute her name is Nana Rashida. I don’t have any pictures yet but I plan to get some this week. I love being back. The smells in the air, the intense heat, it was 116 three times this week, and the constant noise of camels, donkeys, sheep, goats and the very annoying guinea fowl. It just feels like I finally came home. When I got there last week and I pulled up my street the people started standing and clapping saying welcome back, it was an amazing feeling to know that people were happy that I come back.
I am back in my house.
Jake is much better (I think he just wanted to be at his house)
Prayer Request:
that the Lord would show me what He wants my schedule to be.
Safe travels to Guidan Roumdji.
That the doors would open in the hearts of the Fulani people.

sorry pictures are not working i will try again tomorrow.

I Have Returned

I am back. I got in on Tuesday the 11th of March at 2:00 in the morning. I leave tomorrow for Guidan Roumdji. It will be an all day drive, just Jake and me in the car. Please pray for us as we travel that the Lord would protect us on the roads.

Tree Climbing Adventure

In the village of Toda one day Rachel and I decide to climb a tree.
Now in this picture we are smiling and happy, but that is because this was no easy task to accomplish, you see in the village every day we were warp skirts and sandals tying to climb a tree in this and still be appropriately covered is quite difficult.

Representing Union

Please be praying over the next ten days as Jenny Jones is here in Niger with Rachel and me sharing the Word with the Fulani in and around Guidan Roumdji. We have come to love these people so very much and we want them to know the One who gave His life for them so that they can stand with us lifting their hands and praising the Father in their language saying "Mi yetti Allah Joomirawo" (I thank you God my Lord). Please pray that the Father will use our words and give use the ones we need to tell and show them of His great, mighty and everlasting love for them.
