Greetings from Africa. We are so glad to be back here and together. Today we are in Lome, Togo.
We weren’t able to get this mailed out to you before we flew to Africa, so here it is in digital format.
We are both in Africa at this time. We flew to Cotonou, Benin and Fred taught at one Bible School morning and night. Debby spoke at churches many evenings. Saturday we both spoke to and prayed for all the Bible school students. After that, we traveled by road to Lome, Togo. Thank you so much for being a part, sending us and praying for us.
Our supporters are the best! We want to thank each one of you for praying for us and supporting us. We need you and we pray God’s greatest blessings on you throughout 2014.
We had our tickets to fly on February 21st but when we got to the airport, fights were canceled and we had to be rescheduled to fly a day later. We arrived in Cotonou, Benin, via Paris, France, Sunday night, having missed the Sunday services we were scheduled to speak at. As always in life, all plans are subject to change. Some of our schedule could not be organized until we actually got here.
