Christmas isn’t far away, and every kid at the orphanage knows it! The older kiddos hope to get new clothes, and the younger kids would like toys (both will get their wishes!). After opening presents on Christmas morning, they’ll play games, host a dance competition, eat candy, and watch movies. Then, a few days after Christmas, they’ll go on a special trip to the beach!

Over the past 13 years, Rick and Paula have planted churches, discipled leaders, opened schools and an orphanage, and created a Bible focused multi-lingual radio program. As the new year approaches, they would like to return to the states for furlough. To help with costs, please go to our website and click the the word “DONATE”. They are excited to come home and report on all that God is doing in Salone!

Did you know that almost 31% of all gifts to non-profits happen in December? Talk about waiting until the last minute! Would you consider giving us an eleventh-hour gift before the arrival of 2019? Doing so will enable us to love the people, share the Gospel, and disciples believers in West Africa. Remember: our schools, churches, radio program, trade school, and orphanage survive only through your donations! To give a gift, click here.

Rick and Paula ask that you would pray for safe travels back to the States and while visiting family, friends, and donors.

Tyler and Sarah ask that you pray for them over the holidays; being away from family and friends is difficult. 

Chance and Ginger ask that you pray for guidance as they parent their boys, who are in various stages of life.

Lifegate asks that you would pray for spiritual depth and growth in the areas where we minister.
