Two things we wanted to report to everyone before we fly back to NAfrica.
Before we give them we want to share generally that things with our family and things with the business stateside are better than just a few months ago. We have had some really hard issues we have been working through, and upon returning to NAfrica we have an unexpected peace and joy after seeing God work. We can’t thank enough for lifting our family up to the Lord on our behalf.
Two uniquely great reports:
1- we had a meeting yesterday with a potentially game changing customer who is very interested in buying the very wood that we have in most abundance. If this customer begins ordering our barnwood like we anticipate they will, then this will allow us to get much closer to expanding our exotic wood department (i.e. Olive wood, etc).
This customer came to the warehouse yesterday and toured all of our facilities. They love our product and they share in spirit our same mission of “Reclaim, Redeem, and Repurpose more than just wood.”
Do I am happy to report that this meeting was a success. We will find out within 1-3 weeks just how much wood they plan to order. But it could be huge!
2- The second bit of encouraging news to report is from my new friend in NAfrica that I have written about and shared the dreams he has been having. He had a dream of wandering in the desert, then a dream of being led to The Son. Just about a month ago, however, he said his dad was threatening his life after he had discovered his reading material. My friend was in a place of real trials.
But I am excited to report that Monday morning he facebooked me and this is what he said: “Andy lyk khbar mizyén 😉 just ki trauah tau nahkylek 🙂”
Translation: I have beautiful news for you when you return.”
I asked to give me a little hint and he then responded in English with: “I made new believer friends… They are teenager like me .. I’m allways in the chch I complète reading Matthew .. John .. Mark and right now Im reading Luke .. And the best news Im gonna tell u when u return to NAfrica. .. I can’t wait u to tell u all thing about the best happyness in my life .. Just tell me now .. When u return to here ??”
I’m so excited to hear what he has to share. Can’t wait to pass the news on.
In the midst of hard times The Father continue to do His work!
Love you friends. Thank you for your prayers. Don’t stop 👍😘
