February 2021 Update

Lord willing, the next prayer letter you receive will be sent from Sierra Leone! With our shipping container currently floating across the Atlantic Ocean and having received our initial, negative Covid19 tests, our family is planning to travel in just a few days.  We are finalizing our arrangements and finishing the packing of our suitcases as we say, “see you later” to our family and friends. 

During our extended time in South Carolina, we had several opportunities to share Christ and encourage others with His call on our lives. We both taught a young-married Sunday school class while Shaun later spoke on foreign missions at Florence Christian School (Shaun’s alma mater) and preached in our home church’s Spanish worship service. On a personal note, we were thrilled to watch our son, Wes, follow Jesus in baptism!  While unplanned, God allowed these extra weeks home to be profitable. 

We ask your specific prayers in the following areas:

  • Protection of our belongings during their transit and arrival through customs
  • Safe and negative Covid19 tests (2 of them per person) upon arrival in Sierra Leone
  • Travel mercies during our 24 hour trip from South Carolina to Sierra Leone
  • Renewed evangelistic vigor for the national pastors and local believers
