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!

     

    • R. is an amazing Cameroonian Christian widow who has a heart for discipling teenagers and children.  2 or 3 weeks ago Scott went and shared with the kids “The Bridge” as a way to share the Gospel.  This week she is sort of having a day camp for about 15 teenagers at her house. There will be teaching sessions, sports, practical workshops (they will actually get to start a computer ).  They started the week by spending the first day fasting and praying.  It's so inspiring to see young people excited about sharing their faith!  Today the young people will be going door to door to share the Gospel in their village.  Would you pause right now and pray for them?
    • Ab – Scott was able to talk with him by phone.  We are thankful his family has not totally rejected him, but they don’t want to talk at all about faith in Christ. Pray for boldness and courage for Ab.  Pray that he will grow in his faith through reading God’s Word and that he will find fellowship with other believers.
    • M. H. -  We don’t have any more news from him.  Pray for boldness in the face of persecution.  Pray for his family; those who have Christ to be strengthened in their faith; those who don’t have Christ to be drawn to Christ through the faith/courage of M.
    • Pray that God would bring Cameroonian Christians (either Fulbé believers or non-Fulbé believers) to work together with us for the sake of the Gospel.

     

     


  • 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
