Phil & Carol Bergen
“February is a busy month for Pastor Madou who will be spending time in various villages teaching a baptism class. Pray that he could make the basics of following Jesus clear and that those taking the class will put Jesus first in their lives. Also pray that the annual women’s seminar in Orodara which is happening this week will result in spiritual growth and encouragement for the participants.

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. ~ Hebrews 12:3
