As we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the US, it is perfect timing for giving thanks to God for another incredible month in MOPS Africa.
The highlight of the last few weeks was the MOPS French Africa Leadership Conference in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Mandy Dessureault and I traveled to this beautiful West African country, along with leaders from Benin, Mali, and Senegal to meet together as a united group of MOPS leaders. Mandy and I spoke about the Leadership Style of Jesus, gave devotionals about Exodus 17 and Colossians - relating these parts of scripture to MOPS, encouraged these leaders to continue in their efforts and not to grow weary despite persecution their regions (Gal 6:9), and enjoyed many icebreakers and group activities. It was the first time most of these women met in person, and I am confident that the relationships built will result in reaching so many new women with the gospel - especially in some unreached areas of the continent.

Speaking of prayer, our next continent-wide 24 hours of prayer day is Saturday, December 3. Would you commit to setting your clock for a 30-minute period of time on that day to join us in prayer for the efforts of our leaders all across the continent?
MOPS Zambia leadership is on a mission to visit all of the MOPS groups across their regions. It's been great to see them joining in the various MOPS meetings this month:
