I (Doug) leave Wednesday Nov. 28 for teaching in South Sudan and then a strategic meeting in Uganda of trainers from at least 3 countries to discuss what is being done and what might be done yet in training men for the ministry. As mentioned in my prayer letter, I will be joining and co-teaching with Rwandan Pastor Emmanuel in South Sudan. Last week he texted me that they were listening to bullets and missiles flying over their house in Rwanda Congo border. Rebels were fighting to take over Goma but stray gun fire and missiles were threatening Pastor and his family over the border. Things seem to have settled now and he is comfortable leaving his family with his father-in-law while teaching with me. Please pray for his family to be safe especially while Emmanuel is away serving God with me.
The strategic meeting is the second week and we believe this will provide a better network of trainers to multiply resources a little “closer to home.” This trip will assist them in developing curriculum and evaluating which courses the Africans leaders should teach between our visits. Please join us in prayer for safe travel of these African men and a clear communication of both the struggles and victories in each training site represented.
Thank you for holding this ministry up to the LORD in prayer!.
