The 2014 team was excited to meet Pastor John. Over the years we have witnessed God doing amazing things in these villages, including many miracles, healings and food being multiplied. People are so hungry to know more and are so open. It has grieved us to leave them knowing that others are not really continuing the work and some of us have prayed for years about this. So this year, we were privileged to meet Pastor John. He comes from one of the villages and was brought up a Muslim until the Lord miraculously spoke to him and he gave his life to Jesus. He’s Fullah and speaks Mandinka. He’s got such a heart for his people, the remote villages and for children. His fiancée and him run a little nursery in Kwinella and he travelled many miles on his bicycle to visit children and elders from other villages. It was lovely to spend time with him and observe his joy and love for the Lord and people.
Since our trip in January 2014, the money has been raised to get Pastor John a motorbike to help him get to the remote villages.
