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

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.

Policeman needed $12

I was witnessing to two policemen who stopped me Yesterday. One said it was his birthday and he needed $12 to buy some "sodas" to celebrate. We talked for a long time. He turned 32 years old. I told him I don't give New Testaments to everyone, but since it was his birthday, I gave him one. His buddy had to have one too. They both kissed their new New Testaments and thanked me profusely. I told them they were for reading, not storing on a shelf. They promised they would read them daily.

Joshua's school books arrived with huge bill

Joshua's 5th grade homeschool books arrived FedEx from USA on Thursday. The transit bill was $351 on $860 of books. We sent out a quick prayer request on our mini Blog. "I need to go negotiate with the duty office today! Pray!!" Then we went to pick up his books. We negotiated the bill of $351 to $22. Only $63 was duty, which was removed. We gave the FedEx man a New Testament, as we thanked him for his help. He said, "I'm a Muslim, but I'm going to read this Bible and carry it with me everywhere I go!"

As we were loading Joshua's books into our car, another FedEx worker asked me if I could bring him a New Testament. So I went back there today with two more New Testaments. I spent about an hour visiting with the duty agent.

Heavenly Father, may these seeds of Your Word sprout healthy souls for eternity. Thank You for making it possible to reduce that huge transit bill to a small expense.
