Always hopeful

I(Mary) played a very small part in a seminar for pastor’s wives on shame and honor a few weeks ago. A dear believer, L. from north Togo, shared a very powerful testimony of how God shined His light in her darkness. She was saved while in prison, but did not live for Christ till several years later. Her repeated encouragement to the pastor’s wives was that they wouldn’t give up on their own prodigal daughters- no matter how hopeless their lifestyle becomes. We counted many pastor’s wives who had errant children and I saw tears in several eyes as L. spoke. Please pray for wisdom for Beky Poteat (fellow missionary) as she mentors these ladies. 

Last month, Andrew participated in the examination and ordination of a village pastor. Often, in Togo, village pastors do not have much theological training, but this pastor graduated from our Bible Institute program in 2017. We’re praying that he’ll continue to study the Word as he leads his church.

Andrew’s been on the road quite a bit wit…
