Jacob and Sarah Howard


Well, it is hard to believe that this year of language study is almost done. We are thankful for how God walked with us. He is Emmanuel! We have had some ups and downs, but through it all, He who has called has been faithful and is carrying on His work to completion. Praise the Lord!

Because of the ebola crisis in Guinea, the Alliance is doing a strategic withdrawal. What does that mean for us as we have prepared to go to Guinea? We will be returning to the U.S. right before Christmas. Jake will go on Spring Tour while Sarah watches our children and participating in church life in a couple of local Alliance churches near to where we are staying.

Faith is adjusting to life as a big sister. She likes to try to comfort Grace when she cries. Faith is also learning to put words together and she is growing into a beautiful child. Grace is a snuggler and she loves to be held by Sarah. The Lord continues to teach us how to love our children with His love so that they might learn to experience His love and enjoy His presence.

Please pray:
1) For wisdom in what to say in the churches to whom the Lord sends us. For the churches in which we will minister that they will experience God's presence and life in ways that enable them to embrace more fully Jesus as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King.
2) For the final weeks of language school to go well and that we will be able to continue to build upon the foundation that is being laid.
3) For our children to experience God's presence in the transition resulting in peace, obedience, joy and continued sweetness.

1) for the Lord's faithfulness through the moments of the year
2) for the Lord’s help in learning French
3) for those of you who have prayed for us and supported us during this time
