It is with great joy that I have received confirmation that one Tabernacle for a Shadow book is on its way to Cameroon! Many thanks to Dellnot, a young woman who lives in Liberia, for sending this book to this African country. It is with great concern that I also wish to respond to her request: "Please pray for us as we battle Ebola in our country."
Please join me in prayer for Dellnot and for all the people in Africa, as well as others who are aiding people diagnosed with this terrible illness. The World Health Organization declared an international public health emergency on 8/8/14. The West African countries hit hardest by Ebola are Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. These areas are now seeing the departure of many Western development workers. Liberia, population four million, has fewer than 250 doctors left in the entire country, according to the Liberia Medical and Dental Council.

Today a book is traveling to Rwanda. I am thrilled to see another seed planted for the glory of God! Twenty years ago the Rwandan Genocide mass slaughter of Tutsi and moderate Hutu people by members of the Hutu majority killed an estimated 500,000–1,000,000 Rwandans during the approximate 100-day period from April 7th to mid-July 1994. (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
While searching for new information on Rwanda this morning, I was encouraged to see a video from World Vision* that shows hope and healing in a once war ravaged country. “Let him know, that he which converts the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins." (James 5:20)
I am thankful that one person who lives in the country of Rwanda is taking a book there to bring another example of God's love through the Tabernacle for a Shadow book. Small steps but "if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed...” (Matthew 17:20)
Praise the Lora and Blessings to all!
