Dear Friends and Family,
We would like to update you on the plans and progress for the work in Togo, West Africa. The Lord has provided 50 acres for the mission. Kossi and his new bride, Esther, have recently arrived in Togo to begin the processes needed to start building the Christian Missionary Center. This past week they have been meeting with officials to finalize the documentation needed to start the center.
We are also waiting for plans to be drawn up for the land so we can know where to put the water wells.
Marci and I will be making an exploratory, vision casting and future planning trip there from January 22nd – 31st. We are also excited about another family who is being led to partner with us in Togo. We have always felt that it would be a huge blessing to have another family go to Togo with us for support and encouragement. We are thrilled to announce that Kirsten Haviland-Phillips will be going in January with us. You can read more about how God is leading their family in her personal message below.
We would like to ask you for your prayers and support for this upcoming trip. The cost of this trip will be approximately $4,500. If the Lord leads you to support us on this trip, you can contact us at 918-350-0205 or make a donation through our website at www.visiononward.org. Make sure you note that the donation is for Togo.
We thank you in advance for your prayers and support!
God Bless You,
Greetings fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The Lord has placed it on my family’s heart to team up with Vision Onward / Togo, Africa. We are hoping to join them in Togo to help make this vision come to fruition. In doing so, we feel it is important for me to go to Togo, Africa in January of 2011 with the Holley’s to help prepare myself and our six children for third world conditions. This trip will help determine if we will be moving over to Togo in due season. Please come along the side of the Haviland-Phillips family in prayer for wisdom and strength. Thank you for your prayer and support.
