Dear Prayer Partners,

Summer plans are beginning to take shape and come into focus. Our 7th annual
Congo Bible Camp with the Lindquists will involve a team from Michigan
coming to help and experience foreign missions in the DR Congo. It’ll be the
largest team we’ve had working at a camp. Pray that we’ll be able to make
good use of the extra hands, with appropriate tasks planned for each
team-member. I feel it would be unwise to have spectators on a “mission
trip”, so careful planning is required so that each person can be a faithful
steward of the opportunities before us.

Yves Beosso, our director in Chad, was such a great asset at the Congo camp
last summer. We would love to see him involved in a long-term training
endeavor in the Congo in the next year or two. Deaf leaders of his caliber
are hard to find in Africa. Brining him to the Congo would involve quite a
few challenges, especially since his wife will need special assistance
during his absence (his wife suffered a stroke 5 years ago, almost at the
same time my mother, Berta, had her stroke). Pray that God will lead us as
we explore this training opportunity

In Him,

Tim Foster
