Missionaries Windel & Yolie Etienne serve with Global Partners in Burkina Faso. They write with an update on this ministry…
Greetings in the precious name of our faithful Friend, Jesus! We hope that you are well and standing firm in faith. We are also well.
Our baby, Hudson, took his fourth vaccine last month. He had a slight fever, but by God’s grace, he is fine and makes us very happy. The pandemic continues its merciless race across Burkina Faso, but the Lord is still in control. We keep interceding on your behalf and for the whole whole world. God is not in confinement. We encourage you to keep bending your knees before the Amlighty to stop the chain of transmission of this plague.
Yesterday, Windel had the opportunity to meet with our mission directors. Everyone wore masks and respected social distancing. Windel realized how cruel Covid-19 really is. We use to shake hands warmly before this. But that day is no longer possible. We use to see each other’s whole faces and contemplate thier smiles. We are eager for this to end so we can all resume our fellowship in Christ!
However, our meeting with these fellow leaders encouraged us all to stand firm in the faith and to feed the flock of God. We are encouraging all our families to hold services in their homes, and to encourage them as small groups – especially as the majority Muslim population is now celebrating Ramadan. Please continue to pray for us and support us financially. We pray that the Lord will pour out His grace, His peace, His joy, and every blessing on you.
Take care of yourselves. We love you in Christ.
-Windel & Yolie
