show me, Father pt. 3

down south in the bush with new fulani friends

i will say that coming out with my supervisor who is a nurse/midwife has been one of the greatest joys and surprises since i’ve been here. i absolutely love being in villages, helping her see patients, visiting people and learning little bits of fulfulde, but the thing i’m most excited about is hearing the stories of how God is working through this team. there are people responding to the gospel and putting their faith in Christ, and it is seriously exciting to hear the stories and know the joy and peace these new believers are feeling. God is doing big things out in the bush, and i’m just grateful to get to see and hear little bits of it :o) and grateful to have spent my birthday with these beautiful people!

so many reasons to praise God for the people He created and loves. and so many reasons to see and love them the way He sees and loves them :o)

not too many words to share, just some photos because they often tell a better story, and it’s what i love to do most. spent most of the last 2 weeks outside the city, which i’m super grateful for. i like the slow bush life much better than the crowded streets and busyness of the city. so i jumped at the chance to spend a few days in dosso with my zarma friends and then a week down south with my fulani friends. even got to celebrate my birthday in a village, which was perfect.

enjoy these faces and a little glimpse of life here. i’ll update with words soon. :o)

i’m super thankful to be here. i’m thankful to be working for the Lord here. i’m thankful that He gives me ways to serve Him and others and that He has invited me on this journey. i’m thankful He has blessed me with beautiful new friends and challenges. i’m just a thankful girl.
