Dave & Patsy Alfors

Greetings from MN!  It has been so good to begin re-connecting with some of you.  We are always so encouraged as we meet with those who are praying.

 

Recently our missionary colleague, Kerry, visited us here in Minneapolis.  It was fun to show her around our city.  Together with Kerry we visited the mission we partner with in Cameroon, the Medical Centers of West Africa (MCWA), which has its headquarters in Baton Rouge, LA.  It was fun to connect in person with the folks there and to enjoy good southern hospitality.  Coming up we will be visiting 3 churches in the Chicago area:

              July 8 – Cornerstone EFC in Glenview, IL

              July 15 – Lyons EFC, IL

              July 29 – Lincolnshire, IL


 

PRAYER REQUESTS

  •        Praise God that the presidential elections passed relatively calmly, in spite of some tensions.  Paul Biya, who has been Cameroon’s president for the past 36 years has been re-elected.
  •        Pray for MT to grow in boldness and wisdom, and to have the privilege of making other disciples of Jesus soon, especially his wife N, & friends D & A.
  •        Praise God for intentional outreach to Mxslxms by some Christians with a few Bible studies and discipleship taking place in the far north. This is the fruit of Patrice’s training to churches in the area to be more strategic in outreach. Let’s keep praying that there will be a movement of Fulbé and other Mxslxms coming to Jesus

new fulbe bible

May 5th 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
