The Wodome Update August 2021


Dear Faithful Prayer Partners and Financial Supporters,


Greetings to all of you in the precious Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.” Psalm 103:1


Family News

As you already know, Joshua and Natasha’s wedding went well. They are now in their third month of marriage and both of them continue to work and serve the Lord faithfully at PCC. It was a blessing for us to be able to be at their wedding. Thank you so much for your prayers and wedding gift to them. We also are thankful to Salem Baptist church who provided a nice house for us to stay in during our short time in the States.

As planned, Koffi was able to take care of his secondary cataract at Duke Eye Center. Both eyes were done the same day so we can travel in due time to Togo. Elisabeth also went to the dentist for surgery but was told there was nothing wrong with the teeth that bother her but the gum. Samuel saw the ophthalmologist but the decision to remove a growth in his eyelid was postponed. The doctor said to have it taken care of in Togo. We have an appointment at my brother’s clinic in Lomé. Samuel does not complain about it, though.

In order to be back and minister with the team that was coming to Togo in June, we traveled back on the 18th of June, a week before their arrival.

Ministry with Team Triad Baptist Church.

We had the privilege of receiving a mission team from Triad Baptist Church led by Pastor Jason Shuler. Pastor Jason taught a couple’s seminar on Saturday, June 26, at the church of Tamani the next day after their arrival. Just before the seminar started, a heavy rain came through and the roads were flooded. Despite the bad weather, about 50 people came. It was a good turnout The next day, Sunday, June 27, was another busy day for the team. Pastor Jason preached twice while Suzanne and Diana taught Sunday school: first in the church of Tamany and then in the church of Togokome-Agovoudou. You can’t imagine how encouraging and loving they were to us. Thank you, Triad Baptist Church, for sending them. Thank you for coming. You were such a great encouragement to us.

Blessings to Orphans

Missions is also being a blessing to someone. The last two bicycles that we shipped home in 2019 were finally given to some needy boys. Yann and Yannick are twins who have been attending our church in Tamany for over 5 years now. Since their family moved away, they walk 30 minutes, twice every week to come to church. As Elisabeth and I were thinking about them, we found it appropriate to give to them the bicycles. Yann and Yannick have been fatherless since they were babies. They were baptized a week ago. The first bicycle was also given to an orphan girl. Thank you so much Salem Baptist Church for giving those bicycles.

Home Coming

This month (August 2021) marks the tenth anniversary of our ministry. We started activities with a VBS on August 11 through 13. A maximum of 124 children came. Then we had a baptism ceremony on Saturday, August 14. Eleven believers were baptized.  A youth seminar is scheduled for Thursday, August 26. Our homecoming service is planned for next Sunday, August 29.

Moving Forward with a Building Project
