If you missed our last letter, let me repeat a bit of what is going on. In February, both our church and radio station were closed down by the government—within three days of each other. We had not done anything wrong for either situation. [...]

These two months we were happy to be able to get a lot of work done. We finally were able to get most of the titles to our property. For one title, I ended up going to the prison six times to get signatures from the previous owner. So we no [...]
In September, we were so happy to have visitors! Bro. Warren and Jary Lynn Storm, or better said, Grandpa and Grandma came for a 10-day visit. The kids were so happy! We got to show them Kigali, go soul winning, and just have a good ol’ tim [...]
