We have been building up for the past 6 months for these next few weeks. Soon we have meetings with many of our church planting teams to discuss strategy. After that we are off to our field wide conference. We have people coming in from all over West Africa. It has been so fun watching them come and connecting with them as they arrive. It is a little like a big family reunion as many of these folks don’t see each other except during these gatherings, every 3 years.
During our time together we will get to hear what God is at work doing all over. We will also get to talk about important challenges we are facing as a field. We will get to study God’s word and worship together. And of course there will be sports and swimming. What is not to be excited for about this time?
We have a team coming from Vancouver to help us with our kids program. We are so excited to be receiving this team and so thankful for all the work they have done to make this possible. After the conference we will be hosting them and showing them around our town to give them a glimpse of our ministry.
So you can be praying for us as there are still always last minute details to work out and other details that I am sure will arise. Pray that these next few weeks will be an encouragement to our field. Pray for the team coming that they will get here safely and that their time here will be a blessing to them as well as to us. Pray for us as we have been running hard gearing up for this time that we will be able to breathe and enjoy the time when it arrives.
