Here’s a great picture of them on Easter Sunday morning and one of me with Francesca, her mother and the girls. Such a wonderful family!

Dear JLPF Friends,

We have been following the news coming out of Mali with great interest, especially since the aggressive push by the French to expel the Jihadists from the North.  Please read the latest perspective from our partner, Dr. Mohamed-Ibrahim Yattara, so you will be better informed on how to pray for them.
