Sarah is Safe in Chad & God is in Control

I talked to Sarah today. The phone lines (and internet) were shut down last weekend by the Chad government to keep the rebels from communicating with each other. The phone lines have been opened back up, but not internet. All your comments and emails are waiting for Sarah to log in once the internet is back on. Please continue to pray for the safety of the missionaries in Bere and for those still planning to travel in the near future (in & out of Chad). The rebels have been sent back to Sudan, but could return (last time they waited over a year to return).

Rich's radio is not an international ham radio, so they are not able to talk outside of Chad on it. I have received comforting news from the missionary group TEAM (that Rich & Anne belong to). They informed me that Gary (with his Cessna plane) is ready to evacuate the SM girls to Cameroon if the need arises. Lets all pray that it won't get to that.

Please post comments for Sarah to read your encouraging words once the internet is back on in Chad. There are still patients to help at the hospital and God's work must continue in Bere.

  1. We have been thinking of you and hoping you are safe. We also hope you had a great birthday.
    We love you.

    David, Teresa and kids.

  2. Hey Sarah-
    I hope you are still staying safe and are not catching anymore nasty bugs. Raymond is still thinking of you and sent a nice big package the other day that I failed to get a note in- hopefully it will get to you (even though there are those big fights going on at the capital) miss you - try to be safe!
    Remember Friday nights at the rock- looking back at the MILO lights and thinking deep thoughts?
    Miss you
    - Lisa

  3. Sarah!
    I miss you and am still praying for you and Chad. I want you to know that I miss you in futsol and my team has not lost a game yet (although it has been close!) Wish you were here! Don't ever stop trusting God,
    Love ya,
    Lisa Hulse

  4. Hi Sarah,
    Sandi and I are praying for you. I've been encouraging PAA students to read your blog (and James's) and start praying for you on a daily basis. The things you are doing for Jesus and the people of Tchad will not be forgotten. Keep trusting God and loving people. You are an inspiration to all who know you.

  5. Hey Sarah-
    I miiiiissss you! What's going on? I can only imagine; I picture your determined face as you working so hard over there and it inspires me; Today was playoffs in futsol and we won again- barely (can you believe they actually scored 3 pts on me!!!) So championships are on Saturday and Finals are on Wednesday- I've had so much free time this week- it has allowed me to start thinking of backpacking again- Hopefully we can pull of another trip? I still pray for you
    all the time,
