Le Pont – A Bridge to Africa

Exciting News of Answered Prayer

“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Jesus in Matthew 17:20

The weekend of August 26-27 was a hard one. We received word that Sherry’s cancer had reappeared and I got a letter from the IRS saying that Le Pont International’s tax-exempt status had been revoked. Her health and our ministry seemed to be in jeopardy. 

But we have witnessed the power of a mountain-moving God. 

The first mountain moved was the IRS. We had failed to complete some necessary annual forms for our 501c3 charity. We completed the forms and filed them on September 14th along with a request for an “expedited review”. How long would it take this huge bureaucracy to respond? I shuddered at the thought. 

Three weeks later, that’s warp speed by the way, we received the good news that our Tax-Exempt status has been reinstated with no interruption of deductibility and that all gifts to Le Pont International made in 2023 are tax-deductible. 

The second mountain moved was Sherry’s health. She said to me today, “Rex, I’m getting stronger every day”. God is answering our prayers. The side effects thus far are both minimal and manageable. We know there are mountains before us but it appears the giant mountain of fear and doubt has been cast into the sea. 

I believe that in three months Sherry will be a new woman

Please continue to pray for both Sherry’s health and our ministry through Le Pont Int. 

Thank you for the fellowship of your prayers and gifts – a sweet-smelling sacrifice pleasing to God and deeply encouraging to us. 

In his grip of grace,
