Mission Report From Mark & Candy Garrett


Mark Garrett

Dear Ones,

Our hearts are full and our heads are bursting!  'What?' You say. Dec 14 we
plan to board the plane for Senegal.  A hundred details are swimming around
in our heads with last minute purchases and packing details!  But are hearts
are full of gratitude to God who has graciously made a way for us.

After Mark's surgery the doctor explained the pathology report and said that
it was the best prognosis that we could have hoped for.  The cancer had been
entirely contained inside the kidney and there was no evidence that it had
spread elsewhere. Together we planned a schedule of screenings designed to
catch any possible recurrence early during the next couple of years.

At Mark's first quarterly check up yesterday the surgeon found healthy
tissue and good healing after the surgery!  PTL!  So far, so good!  This
confirmed what we had already sensed after the surgery, that God wanted us
to continue to serve Him in Senegal.

Mark will return to teach university students in the English teaching
ministry where he served last term.  Our co-worker recently told of one
student choosing to follow Christ and now attending a local church!  There
are also others who continue to show interest in learning more about the
Gospel at this center near the campus.  May God draw many to Christ!

Candy will return to fill a part time role with the personnel coordinator.
During this home assignment she has completed a Nutritional Therapy
Consultant certification to provide a holistic approach to health for fellow
missionaries and Senegalese as needed.

Anne will resume her schooling at Dakar Academy, where Ethan has been this
semester.  We sent him ahead of us in faith.   :<)  It will be good to be
back with him in Dakar.

We thank you for your perseverance in praying for us.  We sense your prayers
keenly. May God continue to build His church among the Wolof and all the
peoples of Senegal!

Love in Christ,
-- Mark & Candy Garrett
