West African trucker
A trucker in West Africa told the story of his daily life to a new friend. "I left my home in West Africa around six weeks ago. I’m waiting for paperwork and the next load. It’s a difficult life. It’s hard to have a life while always being on the road, and I miss my wife and family. I can travel a region as large as the United States, and I usually sleep under my truck on the ground or on a cot. I carry my own water with me and cook under the truck too.
"I know there is a God, but I don’t know much about Him. I personally pray five times a day to Allah. That is our culture in my country," the trucker explains. "We’re all worshipping the same God anyway, aren’t we?" This trucker is now hearing some stories from God’s Word, some are even on his cell phone. He is beginning to understand more about Jesus and is telling the stories to his other trucker friends. Please pray for truckers in West Africa that they will begin to follow Jesus everywhere they go.
