That is something to really praise God about! 
 
God truly wants this more than we do and is moving in extraordinary ways!

Praise God the Ruffs and Grahams are in the US. The Odles, DMMers, Studio Techs and Permaculture Center workers are all doing well In Ghana. We are all anxious for the pandemic to pass so we all can return to Ghana.

New Zume training and coaching has started in Mozambique, Accra, Ghana, Uganda and Sierra Leone via Zoom. We are talking with key leaders weekly to make sure things are going well. 

They have let us come & take over part of their house for sleeping, cooking & working. They have great internet and a great view overlooking the river.

With unemployment on the rise we are grateful for the jobs our family still have during the pandemic.

We especially grateful to you our partners for allowing Disciple Making Movements continue to multiply.

Story collections continue to be made in multiple languages.

Bible apps continue to be developed in multiple northern region languages.

The last of the studio supplies arrived safely and the guys are now finishing installing everything.

They are working on a video testimony to use in a social media campaign to reach out to Muslims in the area that have shared a person in white visiting them in a dream. This is especially common during Ramadan and a wonderful opportunity to introduce them to Jesus, the person in their dream.. 

Part of getting set up for Facebook ad campaigns we have set up a Facebook page to get ready. You can search inside Facebook for @mothertonguediscipleship and you should find it. I have been experimenting with an ad campaign which has been very eye opening. My mission for the page is to preserve and celebrate oral cultural learning methods in northern Ghana and create audio/video access to the scriptures in mother-tongue languages.

In unparalleled times like these, with so many temptations to worry, we can rest and experience peace because we know the one who is in control and knows all things will guide our steps.

Requests

Please pray that the concepts taught in Zume (DMM training) via Zoom and WhatsApp, which requires good internet connections will be understood and implemented by the people.

We are in the process of setting everything up for a team to help us implement and for God to use to draw unbelievers into His Kingdom. This include setting up a a Facebook business page along with Facebook pixel, Google analytics, Facebook and Google ad campaigns etc. Check out one of our Facebook business pages that celebrates tribal cultures in northern Ghana where we live.

Obviously I need to lose weight but I also  need to find a way to better regulate my diabetes. The only insulin that I can find in Ghana is an older insulin. I begin meeting with the Doctor to find which newer insulin will help regulate my sugar levels. I have also been meeting with a kidney doctor who is monitoring how my kidneys are doing.

Mikayla is now graduated from college. She wants to continue her schooling but needs to find affordable housing in a location that will accomodate schooling, job, etc.

Bobby and Mandy need help educating their kids. They are open to online tutoring if a workable plan can be arranged. I God reveals an answer to you please contact them at: grahamsinghana@gmail.com

We want God to do His work through this pandemic and for the countries to open again, allowing for our return to Ghana and for DMMers travel to other nations to continue launching DMMs.

Praise God for Whats App, phones, tablets and email that make it possible to keep in touch with them and for them to keep in touch with those from other countries. Pray for wisdom for the DMM leaders during these unprecedented times as they following up and coach those under their care. 

We had begun working with an unengaged people group in Guinea which was very difficult for Isaac and Moses to visit. Now all the borders are shut. Please pray for a solution to found soon, obviously in God's perfect timing.

Please pray for God's protection for the DMMers as they are natural leaders who can educate people how to prevent the spread of the virus while encourage the spread of disciples. Pray against discouragement. The guys are all volunteers, we only help by providing a motorbike, gas, maintenance and daily food expenses. I love their dedication, but I'm sure Satan tempts them in a variety of ways.

Also pray for their overall health.
