Theodore said, "My Bible is worn out."
Tue, 26 Dec 2006
This evening, I was on my way to deliver a birthday cake for Jesus to one of our friends. A security guard on our road stopped me. He said he needed to talk to me. Then he held up his ragged Bible. Theodore said, "My Bible is worn out. Can you help me to get a new Bible?" After delivering the cake, I returned home get a Bible for Theodore.
Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing Mike and Sue to serve you in Cote d'Ivoire, where people are very hungry for Your Word. Please give us Theodore's hunger for Your Word.
Merry Christmas and a New Year full of Christ's love and joy.

What is Christmas like in Abidjan?
Tue, 12 Dec 2006
This year it is more beautiful and Christ centered than ever before. We're surprised to see a life size nativity manger scene in a Muslim owned toy store. Outside, in front of the store, in 90 degree weather, they have some device making artificial snow fall! Last year, it seemed that none of the stores were decorated at all. This year we are overwhelmed with decorations, lights, trees and even manger scenes.
Heavenly Father, use this new focus on Christmas to open hearts to our Lord Jesus Christ. Make this the year that many receive the greatest gifts of all, eternal life and peace with God.

Joshua's "mysterious dream"
Tue, 05 Dec 2006
Today at lunch Joshua said, "I had a mysterious dream last night. I dreamed I was Jonah. I was surprised when the big fish swallowed me. Inside he had a swimming pool with nice new tile. There were even clean bathrooms with sinks!"
Too bad Joshua woke up before arriving in Nineveh to share the Good News! Nineveh was located on the eastern bank of the Tigris in modern-day Mosul, Iraq, just 248 miles north of Baghdad.
Heavenly Father, we pray for peace during these stressful days in both Cote d'Ivoire and Lebanon. Protect the people in both countries from violence. Use these difficulties to open doors for your Good News.
"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes..." Romans 1:16
