Senegal Missions Update

Saturday, June 7, marked the first of many "Pentecost for Kids" Crusades here in Togo! With exciting skits, games, and songs, along with a short message, the truth that the Holy Ghost is a promise for children stirred the faith of those present!

By the end of the altar service, 7 children had been filled with the Holy Ghost! What an awesome and caring God that we serve!

The next day was Pentecost Sunday!! In the service where we were blessed to preach, 13 new souls were baptized with the Holy Ghost. Among them were more children! It is exciting to see what God can do  in the lives of the those that reach out to Him in faith!

In all, our missionary team (including the Next Step Volunteers) saw 40 people filled with or renewed in the Holy Ghost in the three churches we visited on Pentecost Sunday!

On Sunday, June 1, a tremendous group of young people from across America began arriving here in Lomé, Togo to participate in Next Steps 2014! This is a subsidiary program to AIM in Global Missions! It creates an opportunity for young people to spend 8 weeks in a global mission field and both learn about and do the work of a missionary!

11 young ladies and one young man have joined with 4 AIM workers, 3 missionary families, the Africa Regional Director and his wife, and a number of Global Missions Executives for a life changing experience. Already they have seen close to 50 people receive the Holy Ghost, healings, deliverances, and many other works of the Spirit. (We can't wait for week 2!)

Equally important, they are learning from experienced missionaries about the amazing possibilities that exist for them not only in West Africa, but around the world in Global Missions! We are thankful for these young lives who have placed themselves on the Potter's wheel to be made into a vessel He will use!
