September Prayer Letter

September 2015

Dear Praying Friends,

We were in the middle of our Vacation Bible School when the mailman showed up at the door of our church.  “I have a delivery” he announced while a shy 7 year old girl peeked out from behind his leg.  Visions of abandoned children being left on church doorsteps raced through my mind but then he announced, “Her father asked me to drop her off; she has been wanting to come all week but was too shy to come earlier.”  I breathed a sigh of relief and we welcomed her in.

Our Vacation Bible School ended last week and it was amazing what God did!  We had a total of 19 children attend during the week, many of them first time visitors!  We have many new contacts with families and children and are very excited by this level of interest from so many families here in Lagos.

We want to thank each one of you who prayed for this ministry and let you know that God is working as a result of your faithful labors in prayer.  Two children, G. and N., expressed interest in being saved, but neither wanted to take the final step and pray.  Please continue to pray for these two children and all the others who heard the gospel last week.  15 out of the 19 children confessed that they did not have Jesus as their Savior.  Our hearts are burdened that these precious children and their families would soon come to know Christ as their Savior and Lord. 

Bringing children to Jesus,

Mark Hale
