In about a week, we will be travelling down to Lome to take our children’s teacher Mariah to the airport. She has been a blessing to our family in this first year of adjustment by teaching Jonah and Katie. We will certainly miss her. (Check out the attached picture of our kids dressed up for “crazy day” at school.)
When we return our team will be hosting some university interns for about a month. These four women will be able to experience many areas of missionary life. We have planned village visits, time at the HIV clinic in town, language learning, and other related activities. I really appreciate the time our team has put in to make this experience a blessing.
Please continue to be in prayer for our team as we work on a strategy for strengthening churches. We want to make sure that we are following God’s lead, and also basing our strategy in culturally appropriate ways. One idea that we are currently exploring is developing coaching relationships with our church leaders. Since they are the cultural insiders, we feel that by asking good questions we can help them lead their churches.
continued family adjustment
thanks for Mariah
Thank you so much for your prayers!
