Dear Friends,

It’s getting to be fall and that means it’s time for us to get back to the mission field.  Fred is excited to be going back to West Africa, along with our pastor, Debby’s dad, Charley Elwell.  We drive to New York City on September 22nd.  Then fly to Morocco on the 23rd and then on to Bamako, Mali.  When Fred returns in November, Debby will be returning to the Philippines November 8th for ministry there.

Thank you so, so, very much for your prayers and giving!  We truly need every prayer and dollar.  THANK YOU!

Augustin helps VBS


Pastor Augustin of Benin has been with us for the last 2 months.  Some of you may have meet him as he traveled with us.  He was an interpretor for us and then became a pastor and now he has multiple churches. He has been a big help to us in so many ways.  We video recorded another Bible Class with Pastor Charley and Augustin did the French audio track.  He also recorded a French track for a previously recorded Video teaching of Pastor Charley.

Please Pray for Us
