White as Snow

By Farrah on April 10, 2017

My team is asked quite often, "what do you do while you're in the mountains?" To be quite honest, I think the answer to this question became even clearer to me this past trip. So if you are in the good company of the many people wondering what keeps my team here, and what causes us to travel into the mountains whenever we can, please listen to this story, and let me know what you think: Like most of our trips, this one was full of driving. We drive from village to village, singing and lifting up the people who live in the houses that we pass by. The weather here is turning from winter to... Read more

My Letter to Future Goers

By Alexander on December 19, 2017

Chapter 9: A New Sister!

By Timothy on June 16, 2018

I got introduced to a local man named Obi through my team leader early in the month and have been meeting with him every month to help him with English, but mainly to study The Word with him. He considers himself 'Muslim' for the sole reason that he lives here. However, he has been searching for the truth for years. Second time I met with him, he mentioned one of his female friends (her name is Ramz) who also has also shown interest in learning more about Jesus. So I met with her that day and shared The Gospel. She listened and took it in. For 3 weeks, I hadn't seen her until she came to a... Read more
