The other day I was driving near the SIL center here in N’Djamena, Chad and saw a 125cc motorcycle with a 3 foot by 4 foot by 2 foot high box or trunk bolted on the seat / back fender. This is normal here, but what was in it was kinda funny to me. A very dusty, fully decorated artificial Christmas tree with a few wreaths, garland and more Christmas decorations sticking out of the box as well. Quite the sight for Chad. Wish I had a camera…maybe if I see another one I will get one.
We are in the process of packing for a Christmas week out in the central village areas of Chad. If you click on the link it will take you to a Google map. We will be driving with another couple and a single gal. It should be a 5 to 9 hour drive, depending on??? The area we live in is flat, flat, flat. it takes two to three hours to get to some geography changes, like mountains as we head east.
We are hearing of many who recently received the Savior as they listen to the Good News in their languages. Please keep praying for more to receive this gift from God, Jesus.
Luke 2:10-11 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for ALL the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Italics by us)
We want to say thanks for your prayers and support for 2015. You are making a great difference. We also wish you all a great Christmas season. Jesus is why we celebrate and we all need to try hard to keep Him at the center of it. We pray daily for you, our friends and family. We are currently fine, strong and healthy. Though our computers haven’t been too well so sorry for the lack of updates. Hopefully more in the New Year.
