It has been a rough year, but great things have happened for the glory of God:
- visits from supporters;
- close friends making a difference in projects that we are involve in;
- being in a position of assisting the leadership here with big decision for the church;
- caring for orphans we love to death;
- saving lives as we fly patients;
- vaccines for newborns;
- helping with a vital water project for the Kapanga people ( my village);
- witnessing to the youth on what made our lives available for God, and on.
We were not regular on updating you all on the Chikomb family, but know you have been in our prayers. We have been able to be a part of the work above because you have believed in us and you regularly pray for our family. We are speechless, thank you!
Andre is doing very good at school. He is doing ROTC and we are very blessed for the way they are handling this.
Sally has grown and is doing great too at school. She is graduating from middle school on May 19. Fresie and Selena will be there as I will be at the General Conference in Oregon. Pray for financial provision for the tickets.
Salena is doing great here working hard to school as well. She helps a lot others kids in her class. She is speaking Swahili, French, few Lunda for Fresie language and few Uruund for Rukang language.
Folks, thank you for your prayers. Our journey here in Congo has not been smooth, but because we know what God has sent us to do here, we obey and we follow. As always, we are a team and that is why we walk along His path no matter how rough it gets.
