Karla has a 6 year old daughter from a relationship before she became a Christian and she will leave her here with her mother and sisters to watch for the 3 months she is gone. She was the first in her family to accept Christ 4-5 years ago. Now her entire family follows Christ. About 2 years ago, one of our missionaries arrived at her church and said who wants to go...who wants to go to the ends of the earth to share the love of Christ. She said "I will". She is a blessing in her Garifuna (African sub-culture of Honduras) community as a teacher and leader in her church. She will be in Mauritania for 3 months working mostly with Muslims. Less than 1% of the nation of more than 3 million are Christians. Wow, that's astounding.
These will be hard days for her as she makes her last preparations, as she talks to her family for the last time for three months. They will only be communicating through email over the next 3 months.

Please pray for Karla. She gave me her email, so if I get any updates from her while she is there, I will pass them on.
