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

 


  • Praise God for the good follow up training this past week with 5 believers from a Fulbé community.  Yaya and MT, believers also joined in for a lot of the discussions.  It was a very encouraging time as we talked together and helped them work out how to share their testimonies and give a clear Gospel presentation.  One morning they went out and shared their testimonies and the Gospel with people they met on the street.  Pray that these 5 Fulbé men will bear much fruit for the Kingdom of God.

    Suzanne, continues to train other women from her church in how to share their faith with their Mxslxm neighbors. Pray that Suzanne and her friends will grow in confidence and that God will lead them to hearts He has prepared to receive Christ.

    4 men came to Dave’s study group last week, but 2 of them were new for the first time.  Pray that these men would be faithful in coming and in putting into practice what they are learning about reaching out to their Mxslxm neighbors.

             We heard from friends who work among Mxslxms in Chad that they have an urgent prayer need. One of the men they are discipling, BA, is very boldly following Jesus and leading others to Christ too. He has experienced God’s power in wonderful ways and is not afraid of the persecution that his witness brings. But our friends are asking for specific prayer of protection over BA as his father, a powerful man, has vowed to search for his son and kill him because of his faith in Jesus. Pray that Jesus will be glorified in BA’s life.



    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
