Prayer Needs

updated July 8, 2023

  • Pray that God would work in Madjé’s body. Pray that the doctors (and us) would have wisdom and that he would be comfortable and healthy.
  • Pray that God would lead the way for Madjé’s care and his future. Pray that we would have wisdom to know what’s best for him and that we would obey the Father as he leads us.
  • Pray for Doubara and his adoption. D is currently in his birth village with his cousins (YAY for summer break!). Pray for his safety and health as he travels in the bush. We are working with lawyers to complete the Nigerien side of his adoption.
  • Pray for all of us as we delay our move, but are still processing through our transition to the United States.
  • Pray for Dave and Hope as we both start new jobs this summer/ fall.
  • Pray for our family life. Pray that we will honor each other and bear much fruit in our day to day lives. Pray that God would be honored and glorified. We have endured much over these last few months, and we are weary. Pray that the Lord would strengthen us and provide all that we need emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

  1. Saw Andrew this AM. Asked about you guys. He gave me an update on the health issues and we are praying about that. Thank you for keep us on your email list. We too want to hear from God how to pray for what He is doing in Niger that you all can join in. Great pictures which tell a great story.

  9. Dear Dave and Hope,
    I am praying that God provides all you need to serve him, physically, financially, emotionally and spiritually.
    Psalm 27:14 (ESV) Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!
    Isaiah 40:31 (ESV) but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
    In his grace,

    You’ve been on my mind today. Praying for your precious family and the journey before you. I’m asking God to provide for your daily needs. I pray the path before you is affirmed daily. And I pray you are able to hear clearly from God. I’m also celebrating in the praises your family (esp. your boys!) are experiencing as you settle into the new routines of life. God is good! You are both amazing leaders! He will bless you!!!!
