We had an amazing trip to the village (7 hours north of here) and were able to share the gospel to over 500 people. Also, through that time we were able to disciple those that we shared the gospel to over the easter holiday, in deeper spiritual truths.
Also please pray as we:
-Are dealing with a clutch that has gone out in our car and it is right now a mystery how to fix it. (so the mechanic here says) It is kinda fixed for now. We still are having troubles...
- are having over students (daily), still shaping the africans here for Jesus.
- have a restful "winter break" together.
Thank you so much for sending us emails, cards, love, prayer, packages, and support! We couldn't be here doing what we are doing if it wasn't for each one of you!
Love- Amy Louise for all of us!

Do you see the kids on the side of the road... They love to wave... they have the most beautiful smiles!
Here is the primary school that we were mainly at...
Nya and Analise with our friends Fanny and Funa with the kids...
Teaching them how to play duck duck gooose...
We showed the Jesus film at the school that night, by the time the movie was going on there were about 300 hundred people... We sang and also shared the gospel...
Here is Bob teaching the people that God gave a free gift when He gave Jesus to us. We have hope for the future because of that. We are not saved by what we do but what He has done for us...
Daddy loving on his girls...
Here is Bob giving the local pastors Bible in thier language. They don't even have a bible. How can a pastor do it without a bible. That was a treat see that. During the training we were able to give about 50 bibles away. Amazing. I have 5 in my house and somedon't have even a page.
Here is the team at the house... And the people that took care of us...
Of course we could do it without an african break down. Do you see that chain. Our friend Ronald towed us because our clutch went out in the middle of nowhere... We were towed about a 100 miles with that chain. It was a long ride home....
Of course you can't forget to hold the chickens while your broken down. Oh the adventure of it all....
So what an opportunity to give and serve. Of course in those moments of giving I didn't always see my best side and I didn't be the person I wanted to be. Stretching is an understatement. But when it is said and done. It was worth it. So our adventures will continue here. Thanks for being apart of our lives and reading my stories... Love - Amy Louise for the Stauffacher family

Here are all the seniors seated down in the first 2 rows of the chapel. Friends and Family come to see this special service. The seniors get all dressed in their finest. They were presented in front of everyone. They were radiating. Can you find Bob and Analise? They are in the middle!
My friends Atupele and Joel. Both Graduating this year! They are planning to get married in 2 years. Atupele has been our sweet friend and babysitter over the last year. The girls love love love her. And so do Bob and I!
Here are the Founders of African Bible Colleges, Dr. Jack and Nell Chinchen and our guest Speaker for the Baccalaruatte Service and Graduation from San Diego Matt Hammett - Flood Church Senior Pastor, and the President of the College Campus, Paul Chinchen
Here are Two Professors at the college. Maggie and Laura waiting for the ceremony to start.
We had a after Baccalaruatte service get together. I got some people together and we decorated the dining hall. About 450 people came. It was fun.
Then we had a senior dinner Banquet (last night where I helped decorate again. It was prettier than prom!) where all the seniors get to share how God has used ABC in their lives and their favorite teachers and favorite stories and what they are doing after they Graduate. It was amazing to hear all the stories. And it was soooo refreshing to be reminded why we are here. To teach and impact the lives and reach Africa through Africans. I personally Loved every minute of this banquet. I cried every time one of my girls got up to share!
Here is Henry! Rosemary , Fanny and Muzanji- All enjoying the Senior Dinner Banquet
Tonight we had a special Concert! The ABC Choir put on an amazing performance. I will put on video of the singing tomorrow!
Of course it wouldn't be complete with out African drums. I will never get tired of African Music. I love it.
Anyways just to update you with pictures. Thank you all for your prayers and support! We are here loving these friends of ours and using the skills we are trained for to equip and train these African Friends to reach more African Friends. They do it the best!
Love- Amy Louise, Bob, Nya and Analise
