Need travel prayers

Thursday is the big day. We fly out of Abidjan for North Africa. You might not realize how big Africa is. Our flight will last almost seven hours. After five days, we continue on to the USA. We're pretty much done with all our work at our old house. We moved out yesterday, so the painters could do their job. Main items we have left to sell are our car, motorcycle and treadmill. We'll finish our packing tomorrow.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the strength You are giving Mike and Sue for their huge transition. Give them much grace and mercy as they travel many thousands of miles over the next four months. Be their constant companion.

Saying goodbye in Abidjan

Thank God with us! With His amazing help, we are getting everything done. It is a pleasure to see things come together each day. The hardest stuff to send out the door is our library of hundreds of books. Today, I gave away my first New Testament, a version by J.B. Phillips. I received it as a gift on May 30, 1977. Ken and Lynda Dick gave it to me as a brand new believer. Sue will really miss all her excellent Bible studies. She also had me take a photo of her with her car, before Pastor Antoine drove away with it.

Heavenly Father, thank You for taking such good care of Mike, Sue and Joshua in Abidjan. Comfort them as they bid farewell to friends and stuff. Thank You for providing an apartment and a reliable car to drive while they are in the USA for four months.

Grateful for your partnership in prayer,
Mike and Sue Farho

Farhos are moving

Thank you for your prayers! We sure need them. Our big move has been in the works for a while now, but we are now free to tell you more about it. In three weeks, we'll arrive in Omaha for a four month home assignment. Then in June we'll move to North Africa, to pastor the only church in a city of 220,000 people. We have a huge transition to make, after serving in Cote d'Ivoire since January 1990. Selling everything we own and saying goodbye to many friends is very stressful!

Heavenly Father, give Mike, Sue and Joshua Your strength as they work long days and nights. Comfort them and their friends as they say goodbye. Thank you Lord for this exciting opportunity to serve You in North Africa.

Our 25th Anniversary and Travels

Can you believe it? Sue and I celebrate our 25th Anniversary tomorrow. Today, we celebrated Joshua's eleventh birthday. We're in the midst of much change right now. One month from today, we'll be arriving in Omaha, Nebraska to speak at Christ Community Church. Then we'll be on the road for four weeks speaking in churches. We're blessed to already have a furnished apartment in Omaha. A major need now is a vehicle to drive during our four months in USA. Do you have one we could use to drive all over the USA?

Heavenly Father, nothing takes You by surprise. You knew Mike and Sue would be together more than 25 years. You know their need for a reliable car. Provide one for them even before they arrive in USA.
