We’ve been back about a week now. Time for a recap of our visit. I am not going to share what country we were in or what cities we visited even though the country we visited is an “open” country. Meaning you’re allowed to share your faith with adults, unlike a “closed” country where it is actually illegal to spread the gospel. We had a great trip and I believe I speak for both of us when I say, we can’t wait to go back!
This will mostly be photos with a bit of commentary. I wrote a 3 page update that, if you’re interested in reading, I’d be happy to email to you. Just shoot me a line at dslowther at gmail dot com.
The trip in numbers:
- 7 days in country
- 4 days in the capital city-due to some travel mishaps
- 1.5 days in the villages we were planning to visit
- 24 hours on planes
- 20+ hours sitting at airports
- 8 (or so) taxi rides
- 50+ people heard the gospel
- 4 people decided to follow Christ!
We got to know this airport intimately! But as you can see, there wasn’t much to it.
The large picture is the western most tip of Africa. The shots on the right are several from around the capital city.
Horse & Cart, still an acceptable mode of transportation. Actually, mostly used to…well…cart stuff.
Our team plus our translators.
Where we stayed. It was great!
A group of people we got to share the gospel with in one of the villages. This is where we saw 4 people choose to follow Christ!
Another village we visited. We did not get to share with as many people in this village, but we can see the Spirit working here. We are excited to continue visiting the people here. Please pray for these people that their hearts would open to the gospel.
Some of the children from the villages and more shots from the villages.
- Several ladies that heard the gospel. The woman standing with me said she was my African mother because we shared the same [African] name. Brian, Jason & our translator in the back of the pick-up on the way to the village.
Brian and I got to sleep in our hammocks one night; it was great! And the pick-up that got us safely to each village.
Thanks for your support of our trip! We are happy with what all God did while we were there. We give Him all the praise, honor and glory for making His name great among these gracious, hospitable people. We are pumped about this partnership!
