Will Be Gone for 10 Days!

Hey everyone!! Just want to let you know I am going to Ouallam for 10 days and will be without internet for my time there. I don't really have anything interesting to update about since it has been the weekend. I finished my language class on Friday and I can say a lot of things about God and Jesus and share a pretty simple testimony. I have SO much more to learn though. This week in Ouallam I will get the chance to practice a lot of my Zarma because we will be working with the villagers, and everyone there speaks the language.

Last night, I finally got to have a little contact with some African children for the first time! Went to a plateau with some of the other American missionaries here to grill hot dogs, and the children just sat and watched us. We ended up playing frisbee with them for a little bit and it was so fun! I was SO excited to finally be able to interact with the kids here. Hopefully this next week in Ouallam will allow more time to love on the little kiddos. Here is a picture of some of the kids from last night...

So for now, I just ask that you would please continue to pray that God would grant me wisdom and understanding of the language to be able to learn and pick up the language quickly. And also that my actions would speak even louder than words where words won't suffice.

Sorry such a short update. When I get back on July 22nd (my birthday) I'll try to update soon after!!!

Ay ga ba aran!! (Love you all!)



  2. love the pictures! Wish I was there...hoping (and praying) it goes well!

  3. miss you pretty sister. hope you're having the time of your life. I know God is using you in ways you might not even be aware of. We are praying for you and can't wait to hear all that the Lord is doing. love you!

  4. Jordan! Adventure without communication to the outside world- how exciting! I read that you'll probably be seeing a ton of livestock in Ouallam...I hope your camera battery stayed charged for a good portion of your trip. You'll return to Niamey in a couple days for your birthday!
