Dear Friends and Family,
Today (Wednesday, March 30, 2011), Rebel Troops, along with the backing of mercenary soldiers, have seized the Political Capitol of Ivory Coast situated in Yamoussoukro. They walked in without having to fire a shot as pro-Gbagbo military had already deserted the city. Gunfire was heard but it was only in celebration for their victory. Over the past three days, Rebel troops seized other major cities on the eastern side along the Ghana border and key cities along the western part near the Liberian border. Pro-Ouattara Rebels are now controlling a large portion of the north side in the commercial capitol of Abidjan as well. A spokes person for the Rebel Troops, Mr. Allah, said today that Abidjan would be taken without firing a shot as well because no one in the Ivory Coast Army is willing to give their life for Gbagbo. Continue to pray for people in the middle of this political situation. Even though a million plus persons have left the city of Abidjan, there are still millions who could possibly be harmed if Gbagbo’s militia and Army in the capitol city makes the decision to fight.
I would like to share a word from my heart. This project is really not about the buildings. It’s about the people of Ivory Coast. It’s about souls. It’s about you and it’s about me and about what HE wants to accomplish in us and through us.
God’s Word says we have not, because we ask not, or because we ask amiss.
In HIS WORD, HE asks us to declare HIS GLORY, to consider the poor, and to care for the widows and orphans.
This center will allow us to do just that. It will allow us to have a Church and Bible Institute for pastors and Christian workers and to have a Christian environment where children can be taught the love of the Lord.
Join us as we pray for the completion of this project and may God touch our hearts and open our eyes in order that we might “see” the needs of others and have a deep desire for HIM to use us personally. Will you allow HIS love and HIS provision to flow through you? Maybe you would like to offer your talents and help us physically by making a short missions trip to Ivory Coast. Or, perhaps you would like to give a donation to be used to help us complete the project we have started. We invite you to contact us by email or call me personally and share what the Lord has placed on your heart. May HE richly bless you is our prayer.
Missionary, James George
