"We seriously need prayer! It seems like every one of the believers here is dealing with some huge trial right now...persecution, sexual sin, a miscarriage.
Let us pray that what happened in Jerusalem in the early days of the church will happen now in Kaffrine. After the church negotiated its way through some turbulent situations, Luke writes, "And the Word of God continued to increase, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith." And the moral of the story is? The gospel is an unstoppable force in the world. Despite persecution from without and tumult within, the gospel will not be stopped!
May it be so, Lord Jesus, in Kaffrine, Senegal.
