Walking and visiting

This is our life now and for the next 6 weeks. We've made several new friends already.

Thanks to your prayers, we have Internet on our phone. Don't expect long messages or perfect spelling!

Heavenly Father, thank You for meeting all Mike, Sue and Joshua's needs as they travel and study Arabic.

With love,
Mike and Sue Farho

Farho Family Update

We are grateful that the Internet allows us close contacts with our friends and family. We are able to visit with John frequently. He is doing well. His shoulder is becoming stronger and more flexible each day. Joshua is doing well at homeschool. He seems more mature each day, even adding body hair and odors! Sue is grateful that her migraines are becoming rare. The ringing in my ears continues, but the pain I had in my feet is now gone.

Your prayers are needed, as we will be on the road for the next six weeks. We hope to send you weekly updates, but don't know if it will be possible. If you don't get updates from us, you might still find news from us at our blogs: http://blogs.farho.net

Heavenly Father, we ask You again to heal this ringing in Mike's ears. Help him to hear clearly, to facilitate his learning of Arabic. Keep the Farhos safe and healthy during their six weeks away from home.

Prayer is a powerful ministry

Mike FarhoWith Canadian Thanksgiving and USA Columbus Day yesterday, we're thinking about the things for which we are grateful. Right on the top of our list is your ministry, as one of our prayer partners. Your ministry of prayer is the power behind our service here in Abidjan. We can't do anything without your partnership! Today, we dedicate this update to you and your powerful ministry of prayer.

Heavenly Father, thank You for each prayer partner lifting up Mike and Sue. Bless each one and give them the faith, healing, encouragement, joy and the finances they need for each day.

My life is full of joy

Mike FarhoToday, Radwan and I went to his travel agent to purchase airline tickets for my family to an MK education conference in Niamey, Niger in January. One of the armed guards there ran up to us and greeted me very warmly. He thanked me profusely for giving him a Scripture booklet last month. He told us that his life is totally changed. His life is now full of joy, with Jesus in his heart. What a joy it was for us to hear his testimony!

Heavenly Father, continue to give Mike and Sue many opportunities to share the Word of God and love of Jesus with people in Abidjan. Guide this young man as he grows in his relationship with Jesus Christ.
