Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Hello and greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Greetings from Senegal!
We are still at Dakar Academy, a school for missionary children, in Dakar Senegal.
We are starting our 13th year at DA and our 27th as dormparents.
Currently we are in a middle school/high school boys dorm and this year we will have 13 boys in our dorm. Eleven boys in our dorm are first time boarders. We have MK's from 7 different nationalities. USA, Canada, Brazil, Korea, Switzerland, Gambia, and El Salvador.
We are both actively involved in the schools outreach program, mentoring, and Jim is coaching soccer and using soccer for evangelism.
Thanks for your prayers and friendships!
