The Sharpes are working with the Hausa of Cote d’Ivoire and had been invited to a Muslim Hausa family’s baby naming ceremony in Abidjan. I went along with them but we arrived too late and missed the ceremony. However, we still had a great time visiting with the family and meeting all the neighbors.
The mother had given birth to twins but the baby boy didn’t make it. Before leaving they let us pray for them and their newborn child.
Pray with us that God can use the Sharpes’ friendship with this family to lead them to know Him. Pray that this baby girl will grow up healthy and strong and also come to know Christ and His love for her.
Also, I’m going to cheat a bit and make the above image my photo of the day. I figure it is a nice segway back to color photos after the last several being black & white.
