|New pastor-missionaries head north...|

It looks like there will be two new pastors moving into the province of Oudalan in the coming months. One plans to move into a Tamacheq village, and one into a Songhai village...
I will write more about these men when things are clearer, but please pray for them and their families as they make this big step. They are coming with a vision and passion to bring God's love and blessing to the communities of the north. Both men are from the Mossi people, and so are effectively cross-cultural missionaries. They will have to learn the local languages and adapt to the local culture.
In addition, they will not be supported financially by a mission agency or church, but will have to find some land, build a house, and find a way to support themselves. Usually they would work a field, but this is difficult in the dryness of the sahel. Often their first church is a nearby tree with enough shade to keep the sun off.
