ALL, Speaking Volumes

De Bron::

With the new families, and a couple of repeat visitors, we have really begun to feel like a fellowship. It has been great to gel together, and work together, as we think about roles for even mundane things like setting up the coffee. Everyone is contributing, with no real tensions so far!

Becoming Parents

ALL, Emmanuel

In an instant on August 25th everything changed.  We went from Kristin and Joselo to Mom and Dad, and we are just beginning to wrap our minds around what this really means.

MIST Report

ALL, Ministry in Scripture Translation

Family

After being in Zambia for 3 and a half weeks with rather poor internet connections, it is good to be back home with a much better internet connection. Some have suggested that a fast internet connection should be added to the hierarchy of basic needs. At least now I don’t have to email Jeannette to communicate with her. Of course not too many years ago, fast communications with some one overseas was done with an expensive phone call, and not too many years before that, it was a hand written letter sent by postal service via ships. I guess I should be grateful for a flakey internet connection since that is nearly instantaneous (when it works) and so much faster that a letter via ship.

Welcoming

Having been gone for three weeks to the UK it was a wonderful surprise and an answer to prayer our first sunday back to see two new families attending.

MIST Report

Family

I (Neil) have not experienced all that has been going on at home over the last three weeks or so because I have been in Mongu, Zambia at a Luke Partnership Workshop here. I’ll say more about that under work, but most of what I know about family this month came from Jeannette via email. And I missed about two weeks of communications with her because I had work on my contact list, consolidating some duplicate email addresses and in the process messed up her address. I was sending emails to someone, but it was not Jeannette. I just hope someone found the email interesting or funny. The internet connection here is very slow and cuts in and out, and about all it has been good for is email. Any attempts at searching for information via browser was almost useless.

Reunion

We write this from the soutwest corner of Scotland. I am looking across the bay to at the mountains as the rising sun pulls the mist off the water.

MIST Report

Family

Jeannette traveled to Greensboro, NC to hear Karen featured as she played a movement from a concerto, accompanied by one of the orchestras at the music camp. Karen did an excellent job and traveled back home just a couple of days later. She and her sister, Esther, and a friend traveled about two hours north to spent a weekend at the lake home of one of Jeannette’s uncles. While there, Esther traveled about two hours to play in the orchestra on the first weekend of a music celebration of a small town. They just returned last night and enjoyed their trip greatly.

Recuperation

ALL, Speaking Volumes

The musical ministry team came and they were a great blessing. Thirty young people stayed in different homes, sang on the market square and held a concert.

June 2014
Inauguration

ALL, Speaking Volumes

The last four weeks we have been looking at what it means to be a church. How we can all use our spiritual gifts to serve one another. Also at the ladies meeting we looked at serving with gladness. Sometimes when we have to do things over and over (chores, cleaning, laundry etc) we forget the gladness.

The Journey Continues

ALL, ACTSent

Africa is a 'shot in the arm!' We left Kampala with renewed ideas, enthusiasm & insight . . . something our colleagues there always supply in ample measure. The flight, & stifling heat, from Entebbe through Nairobi and on to London Heathrow (like going from Dallas to Atlanta to England) didn't dim any encouragement we got with the prospects ahead. We wonder . . . is Africa possibly 5,000 miles closer to Heaven?

Anticipation

ALL, Speaking Volumes

How wonderful it is that God is good all the time: we are consciously turning our anxieties into anticipation, knowing that He cares about even the little things, and isn't done with us yet.
