Dave & Patsy Alfors


Greetings from Cameroon!  We arrived in the capital city last night and are thankful for smooth travels and that all of our luggage arrived. This evening we will be taking the overnight train up to our city, and will arrive sometime Saturday morning, Lord willing.  We are excited to be together with our colleagues again: Scott & Lee, and Kerry. We will be moving back into the same house where we were living before.





 

PRAYER REQUESTS

 


  • Thanks so much for standing with us in prayer.  God is at work!

     

    • Last week was the Feast of the Ram, when Mxslxms all around the world remember Abraham’s obedience and willingness to sacrifice his son.  It was encouraging to hear MT, who became a follower of Jesus about a year ago, calling it his “Easter celebration” as he remembered what Jesus has done for him as the Lamb of God. Pray that the believers will increasingly learn to redeem their culture and traditions to honor Jesus.

      We have been working with 2 small groups of teenagers, from Rebecca’s youth clubs who are keen to share the Gospel with others. They find it rather daunting to do this with Mxslxms so we  are trying to encourage them. Pray that they will be bold and step out using the simple method we have taught them.

               We continue to go into the markets looking for people who want to know Jesus. Last week Kerry and Patsy had a long conversation with a Quranic teacher, S., who accepted a copy of Matthew’s Gospel. He has never read the Bible before and is very confident that he is on the right path to God. Pray that God will speak to his heart as he reads the Gospel and that the eyes of his heart will be opened to truth. We hope to follow up with him in the next few days.


     

     


  • new fulbe bible

    May 5th, 2018, there was a large gathering of Fulbe believers to celebrate the dedication of the Arabic-script Fulfulde Bible, which has finally been printed and is ready for distribution.  It was a time of great celebration and joy! Hearing the testimonies of those who have suffered greatly for their faith but are still standing strong was a tremendous encouragement for those who are weaker in their faith.   


    -Pray that this version of the Bible will encourage the believers and lead many other Fulbe to Christ. 

    -Pray that as these brothers and sisters in Christ return home they will have the vision and encouragement to press on and reach their people with the Gospel
