Our return to Africa started off with a bang at the West Africa Missionary Retreat. This is an annual gathering of Church of Christ and Christian Church missionaries from all over West Africa. This year we had representatives from Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, and Burkina Faso.
The idea of WAMR (pronounced WAMMER) is to be a time of refreshing and encouragment from the Lord for everyone, a break from the daily grind of life and ministry in West Africa. This year's speaker was Joe McReynolds from Atlanta, GA. He blessed us with many truths about God's character and who He wants us to be in repsonse to who He is. Papa Joe has countless stories of God working in his life and the lives of those around him in amazing ways. Thank you Joe for filling us up with Truth and encouraging us all to become more like our Maker!
Here is a pic of all of the missionary families who attended WAMR this year. It was a great group, and we all enjoyed worshipping and fellowshipping together. Praise God for what He is doing among us and through us, and may all of us working for Him in West Africa be fruitful and full of His Spirit!
