Mondoukou Church – Orphanage – Pastor’s Training School

LaNelle and I would like to say “thanks” to each one on the 14 member mission team who went with us to Ivory Coast. The ladies did a great job of teaching the women’s medical training seminars and were able to meet many of the medical needs of the orphans in Abidjan. Four ladies were saved during their meetings in Mondoukou, primarily a Muslim village.

The men worked hard and were able to finish the foundation for the orphan’s dorm and cafeteria.

Going to Ivory Coast is always a life changing experience. Everyone on the team came home with a greater vision for missions and many commented that they can’t wait to go again.

Thank you for your heart to serve the Lord in this capacity. Your services were needed and much appreciated by LaNelle and me as well as the people of Ivory Coast.

We would also like to thank those at Henry Baptist Church who worked so hard to raise funds making it possible for others to go.

“Bless the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure,” “Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul.” Psalms 103: 21,22

“Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward:
they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” Ps. 40: 5

  • First day: Team members standing on the 3,000sf foundation already laid for the church.
  • Work Progresses: Men lay foundations for dormitory and cafeteria. Foundations are finished.
  • What’s Next?: August 23rd another crew will be going to erect the metal building and lay block for the dorm and cafeteria. Please help financially and pray faithfully as we strive to complete the project.

Container in Ivory Coast

After many years of prayer, the container is sitting on the property in Mondoukou. Erection of the metal building donated by Covenant Steel will start August 25th. What a blessing to finally see our dream of a church and pastor’s training center come to fruition. This will be the church where the orphans are trained as well. Only God could have put all of this together. May He receive the Glory.
