The Power Is On!

Michael Grainger arrived safely in the West African country of Ivory Coast. The Navigators have been building six apartments (expandable to 24) to provide a revenue source to fund ministry in Western Africa (see previous post below). Michael's goal in traveling to Ivory Coast is to finish the apartments so they can be turned over to tenants.

A major prayer item was that the utility company would provide the electrical meter. The day before Michael left, he found out that the electrical company had lost their records. However, before Michael landed on Tuesday the electrical company had found the records and by Thursday morning the electrical meter had been installed and the power was on!

Michael wrote in an email:
" became very obvious that many of you were praying. Proverbs 21:1 - The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. I was talking to some of the local Navigators leadership yesterday and they said 'Merci mille fois', thank you a thousand times for helping the ministry in such a tangible way."

  • Praise God that the power is now on at the apartment building.
  • Praise God that Tammy feels better since having a migraine headache.
  • Pray for Ariel, Malia and Derek as they start school this Monday (Ariel's first year in High School).
  • Pray for all the tasks remaining to be accomplished to finish the apartments.
  • Pray for Michael's trip to Burkina Faso to assist in opening the Navigators' medical clinic.
  • Continue to pray for God's hand to be on Michael - for his safety and success.
