Hey!  While I have a minute here at the Span’s I thought I’d throw up a quick post.  It’s about 9:30 in the evening on Sunday night and the others have already gone over to the guest house for the night.  We just had an amazing few days in Dalaba.  It’s about 350 km north of Conakry and about a 7 hour drive.  It was a great experience!  We had a chance to see this beautiful town in the mountains and even better, see the work that our missionaries are doing there and meet our fellow Fulbe believers.  We worshiped with them last night and tonight we had a worship service in English with the group of missionaries and ex-pats who live here in Conakry.

We have been hosted beautifully.  We have had opportunity to eat a delicious meal at the village of one of the families in the Dalaba area.  We went to the market here, and have experienced much of how life is lived in this country.  We will have plenty of stories and pictures!  Through it all, we have been blessed by God’s grace and touched by the faith and faithfulness of the Christians here.

Our team is doing well.  Julie was sick through the night before we left for Dabar, but was doing well after sleeping through the journey.  Tonight, we are tired and warm from the long journey on challenging roads and are ready for a good night’s sleep.  I don’t know if I’ll be able to post tomorrow, but our plan is to fly to Senegal tomorrow night, sleep the night there, and then fly to Banjul, Gambia on Tuesday.

So…all is well and we pass along our love to our families, friends and Church family back home!

  1. We’re excited to hear that all is going well. Take lots of pictures as I would love to see just what the area all looks like alongside your explanation of them. As I sit down to a bowl of corn flakes followed by some bread with peanut butter and jam, I wonder what you are have ate this morning for breakfast. Probably a bit different. Enjoy each moment there and may God provide you with all you need today. Love, Gerald and Sharon (and probably mom and dad too) I’ll maybe get your church site up for them at home so they could be kept up to date.

  2. Well, hopefully third time’s a charm. You would think that with all the computer training I have had recently, I would be able to figure this out. All my messages are probably floating out there is cyber space…anyways back to you. It has been great hearing about your trip so far. We are all a little anxious about getting another update (tell Julie to send her mom and dad an e-mail)! Hope everything is going well. Be asured that we thinking of you and praying for you often. Lots of Love, the van Staal’s
