Niger, West Africa : June 2-14

Postby chad_ghost on Mon Apr 14, 2008 10:44 am

As you know, I am going with a small group of five people to Niger in June to bring the light of the gospel to a darkened world.

We need your prayer and support throughout this journey, especially now. Satan doesn't mind us going on a trip, but he doesn't want us to minister to the people of the Songhai. We need to be warriors for Christ, and we need you to help be His army.

I will use this thread for announcements and the like, as well as discussion. Please post with your support and questions.

Some updates:
In the last couple of weeks we have raised another $800 through a yard sale and 3-on-3 basketball tourney, but that still is a far cry from the total of around $17,000 for the trip.

We are growing closer to our goal, and I was given $25 more today, though I'm still far off of my goal.

Please keep our trip in your prayers, and help us stay focused on God's calling and not the distractions of this world.

Monday is the big day. We will be leaving the morning of June 2nd and arriving in Niger on the 4th.
We should be back in the states around the 13th, and home on the 14th.

I'll try to update this as the week progresses.

Please be praying for us.

Heading out tomorrow around 11:30, flying to Charlotte then to New York, then to Casablanca and on into Niger (Niamey).

We actually don't arrive until the 4th. Keep us in your prayers; we will be back in the US on the 13th and home on the 14th.
