Texts from Sierra Leone

3 Jan

I went to Sierra Leone, West Africa for the first time in 2007. I’ve been receiving news from friends I’ve kept in contact with about the current crisis of Ebola. David shares from his perspective about the hardships it’s causing the nation, his passion for evangelism, his family’s needs, and how to pray.  I am sharing (with permission) so that we can remember our brothers and sisters in prayer…as if it were our own family.

Texts from David, Bo, Sierra Leone:
