Senegal Project Reflections

Last month I was blessed to work with an international team of designers representing the US, the UK, Holland, and Senegal. We worked on a primary school and education training center near Mbour, Senegal with The Beer Sheba Project. This project and helping host the team was a huge highlight during my time to date in Senegal, and we were all encouraged by how God is moving through the ministry to unite His body.

I'm always amazed at how the Lord brings teams of designers together to collaborate and help ministries realize their vision on paper and through planning. This team was truly exceptional! We had the privilege of serving with a ministry that I pray stays a close partner as we start our office in Mbour. If you haven't yet, watch the video for an overview of this project team.

Discussing the Master Plan

Looking Ahead

Please reply and let me know if you are in Colorado and have some time to connect between July 23 and August 5. I would love to share more with you in person about how God is moving in Senegal and your part through prayer and finances. Also let me know if you'd be interested in joining our Golf Marathon on August 2.

Here's a rough timeline of what is ahead:

  • July-Aug: visit USA, golf marathon & EMI staff conference
  • Sep: visit Céline's parents in East Africa
  • Oct-Dec: Senegal team orientation & office preparations
  • Jan 2017: officially open EMI Senegal office
  • Feb 2017: project trip
  • May 2017: wedding in France
  • Summer/Autumn 2017: reception in Colorado
Thank you so much for being a part of what God is doing in and through us!
Praise the Lord for precious moments with Céline!

Prince of Peace
 

Peace is a central value alongside hospitality in Senegal. Despite differences, people seek peace and harmony in the midst of fear and uncertainty. Yet there is only one Source of true peace, the Prince of Peace, Jesus. Pray with me that more come to know this peace through following a Good Shepherd and knowing His voice. We are His body. He is our chef, our leader. And His peace reigns, overcoming fear, to the glory of God the Father! May we also rest in this peace as ambassadors of the King!

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. - Colossians 3:15

Que la paix du Christ dirige vos cœurs ! Dieu vous a appelés à cette paix pour former un seul corps. Dites-lui toujours merci. - Colossiens 3:15
