There is much to celebrate in the beginning half of the summer!
1. I want to start by highlighting the work being done in our French speaking areas of Africa. Pastor James from Ivory Coast has been doing a lot of MOPS group planting around West Africa these last several weeks, visiting Mali, Ivory Coast, and Senegal on behalf of the ministry. Under the leadership of Mandy, our Canadian & French Global Ministry Developer, over 50 women and several churches were given the opportunity to learn about MOPS, and several new groups have already been started from these efforts.

2. During the month of June, our MOPS Africa leader group studied the book of Joshua together, to learn about Godly leadership. We read through several chapters of Joshua and accompanying devotionals, to apply God's word about time management, leaving a legacy, and handling failures to our roles as MOPS leaders. What a sweet time together in His word every week.

3. Coming up in just a few weeks, MOPS Ghana is hosting its long awaited MOMCon!! Myself and Chioma Obasi (from Nigeria) are planning to attend. After having to cancel the conference in May 2020 due to Covid, I desperately desire to attend this year's conference. Please be praying for God to go before me in my travels to West Africa for this opportunity. Please also keep the health of all of those attending in your prayers!
4. And finally, please keep our African MOPS groups in the countries of Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, and South Africa in your prayers, as they are recently back in varying stages of lockdowns. For those that were able to meet, here are some of our lovely groups over the last two months:
