Alessandro and Chantal had barely finished unpacking when it was time to re-pack for a ten-day trip to visit some churches. They had a good time connecting with numerous believers and had several opportunities to share about their ministry.
All these transitions are not easy. It’s challenging to learn how to function in another country, culture and language. And it’s demanding to travel from place to place and meet with lots of people. Alessandro and Chantal are so thankful that, in general, the kids are handling it well. Samuel loves to be with people and his shyness quickly disappears. What is more difficult is that the kids are not sleeping well at night; they are waking up a lot, and therefore Alessandro and Chantal are not sleeping well either.
God has provided a vehicle for Alessandro and Chantal to use for their entire stay in Italy for which they are very thankful. Their time in Italy is flying by. Many of their weekends are already booked. Alessandro has numerous things to deal with whilst in his passport country. Chantal has language sessions five times a week to learn Italian.
The great news from Guinea is that not only did the village elders agree to give Alessandro and Chantal land for building their house but the document to make it official has already been signed by all seven people who needed to sign it! This is an amazing answer to prayer! Praise the Lord with them!
Please continue to pray for the final paperwork and the construction which Alessandro and Chantal hope will begin soon.
Alessandro and Chantal are thankful for their Konyagi missionary team and mission leadership for all the time and effort they are putting into moving this along.
