May 2023 Update – Ivory Coast

ENW recently returned from the Ivory Coast. During this twelve day visit, we had the opportunity to focus on two significant ministries.

The first one began the first Sunday and continued through the regular services of the main Bingerville church for two Sundays. This was the opportunity to teach through a series titled “Fifteen Privileges and Responsibilities of Every Church Member.” This series included six church services.

The second opportunity was our bi-annual Institute class. This time it was “Advanced Biblical Counseling.” Approximately 22 men were in the class. It was a blessing to serve these young men to prepare them for private word ministry. The men always have thoughtful questions that make for a robust discussion. They listen well, think through the principles presented, and ask for clarification which provides a wonderful balance of teaching and interaction.

ENW will be in Bolivia in September … and back in the Ivory Coast in December. Your prayers for these opportunities are very much appreciated.

On a personal note, please pray for Chris. She is struggling with a knee problem which may lead to knee replacement. We are doing all we can for her not to go through this, but we will see what God has for us. Your prayers are much appreciated for this as well.

I am in the final stages of editing my latest book titled: The Biblical Doctrine of Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage. Prayer for wisdom as the final adjustments are made before it goes to press.

As always, thank you for all you do to pray for and financially support the ENW ministry. We do all we can to be good stewards of both.
