  • The training in Gindiri is going well! There are 150-170 students. Students are set to graduate in May and will be assigned to mission fields. Pray for their upcoming ministry.
  • Students from Gindiri will be sent out to share the gospel tomorrow morning.

  • Another attack out by Miango. More villagers killed, at least 11. Pray for protection and for comfort for the bereaved.
  • Thursday night in Jos, a group of 20 Muslim men went around knifing people. Rick’s friend Femi (a basketball coach at Hillcrest) had a brother who has multiple knife wounds, but is stable. Pray for peace, and for healing.
