August Missionaries of the Month: Bruce & Jaye Hansen
The Hansen’s work with Literacy & Evangelism International coordinating ESL classes and teacher training in the Caribbean. They just moved to Charlotte, NC and are excited to see how the Lord would like them to get connected & involved. Charlotte is a very culturally diverse city and there are multiple nearby Haitian churches. Please pray:
o That God will guide them to the right place(s) to teach literacy with immigrant populations.
o That they will be able to find Haitian adults who would like to learn how to read.
o For future opportunities to work in Haiti.
o For God to lead them in finding someone they can mentor to carry on the work in Haiti.
