Phil at EEI Church

 Progress is being made on the addition and clean up work at the EEI church. As a consultant, Phil is meeting regularly with the crew—modifying plans and encouraging the work to progress at a good pace. Continue to pray for job site safety and no further flooding.

Suttons at CSEN Orphanage

Suttons on River

Suttons in town

 Over Christmas break we were privileged to make some new friends and introduce them to our local markets, the orphanage and the church. After an on –line meeting, the Suttons arrived in Niger to visit their daughter who works with the US embassy. They were a great encouragement, to us and others, as they not only came to see but to serve. They spent time at both Sahel Academy and many days at the CSEN orphanage. Their eyes were opened and their hearts were tugged by the needs of the local people and the children at the orphanage. We were thankful for the opportunity to share Niger up close and personal with them.


 After a long relaxing break, for the boys and Shannon, second semester has begun. Shannon will be co-teaching a sewing class at Sahel Academy while Micah is looking forward to Jr. High drama/choir and Noah will be helping in the computer lab as a teacher’s aid during one of his free periods.


Praise the Lord that $2,500 towards the $10,000 needed for our summer trip to the US has been given.
We are confident God will continue to touch other’s hearts to give as well.

Praise for good health and safety in 2012.

Praise for calm in Niger as countries around us continue to have war and unrest.


Pray for the remaining funds needed for our summer trip to the US.
Pray for the ACEN church to be disciplined in obeying and serving the Lord.
Pray for ongoing construction work on the EEI church sanctuary addition.
Pray for the people in the neighboring country of Mali during this time of war.
Pray for teams coming to Sahel to restore the campus for next school year.
