Evan and Jewel Evans

Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Evan and Jewel served at the International Christian Academy (I.C.A.) in Cote d'Ivoire, W. Africa for 20 years. I.C.A. was evacuated in 2002 due to civil unrest and they moved to Senegal, W. Africa to work at Dakar Academy where they currently serve as the chaplains. Their other ministries include heading up the Outreach programs at D.A., discipleship ministries, leading the Sun. worship team, and dorm administration. The Evans have 4 daughters, all of whom are married and serving the Lord overseas. They currently have 7 grandchildren.

The Evans' greatest passion in life is a hunger for God's manifest presence in their daily lives. The things that used to satisfy them no longer do. They hunger and thirst for God's presence and for Him to do a NEW THING in their lives. As chaplains, they greatly desire to lead people into God's manifest presence.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

1) Please pray for us as we move into a boys dorm for the remainder of this school year. We just unexpectedly lost a set of dorm parents and feel the least disruptive thing to do would be to cover the dorm for the rest of the year. We also agreed to cover the girls dorm for the fall semester of 2018 while those dorm parents go to language study. So we will spend the next year of our lives being dorm parents 29 years after leaving that ministry! Pray for energy to keep up with teenagers!!!

2) We praise God for the privilege of serving with the Christian and Missionary Alliance. We have a renewed anticipation of what God is going to do through the C&MA in the coming months. He is on the move and it's an exciting time to be serving in Senegal!!!
