Dave & Patsy Alfors

         In the midst of difficulties and disappointments may God give each of us grateful hearts.



         Would you pray for the Kingdom to continue to advance?  Would you ask the Lord to grow our faith and hope in Him, even as it means that trials of various kinds will likely be the means of that grace?”


Two Saturday nights ago we were with our missionary colleagues, Scott & Lee, for a time of fun and pizza.  That Sunday Scott fell ill with fever and chills.  He and Lee were tested on Monday and Scott’s test was positive & Lee’s was negative.  However, the next day Lee became ill as well.  We were tested on Wednesday and that day Patsy started having a low grade fever.  We got our test results this last Saturday and Patsy’s test was positive and Dave’s was negative.  Patsy only had a low fever for a day and a half but has had a normal temp since then.  She has felt tired, a bit woozy, and has a mild cough for these past 6 days.  By the Grace of God it has been a very mild case!  Please pray that it not get any worse while it runs its course.  For Scott & Lee, their cases were fairly mild as well but they have had more fever, chills, and fatigue than Patsy has.  They are getting better but please pray they will fully recover soon.  By the way, if you were wondering, because of God’s Grace Dave has felt fine this whole time. 

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
