A year to remember in the US; Now, back to Africa!
START... New Assignment!
Before leaving Africa for the US last year, Alace and I put together an audacious list of what we dared dream that might be accomplished in our personal lives and in ministry. As we reflect, we are amazed to report that we saw each one of those items realized! We are very grateful. Now, as we pack up for Africa once again, there is a mix of emotions. However, we know that the same God that provided all our needs thus far in the journey will be there for this new chapter. Of all the things we cherish most in this past year, it was connecting with many of you personally. Thank you for joining us!

EXPANDED ROLES: More Books; More Aircraft!
Alace has already started 2 courses in Liberty U. online toward completing a degree in counseling! As funding permits, she'll continue to develop her skills as a great listener, trusted ally, and advisor. Our field experience shows us how key it is to have access to member care, on site, to live out our callings. Alace wants to be that person for her teammates.
Steve has been asked to oversee an additional aviation department in Cameroon- a neighbor country of Gabon. This is an exiting, 1-year opportunity to more widely impact efforts that aim to share the love of God in word and deed. There will now be a total of 4 aircraft, 8 national staff, and 7 int'l staff to serve!

Our dear Gabon friend and colleague, Pastor Jean Marc Ynguemba passed away July 15. Please pray for his family and national church as they mourn his absence but celebrate his Christ-like faith in life.
