Here I am in Africa! I’m not sure what day it is, but I know I’m here!
Thank you for praying for our family as we parted, and for me as I traveled over. The flights were without incident, and all of my luggage arrived with me. (Thank You, Lord, for answering prayer this way!) I’ve been able to talk with my family in Maine & Tennessee a couple of times via Skype and Face Time.
It’s been fun greeting friends here in Togo today. I’m experiencing that odd mix of gladness along with the heaviness that comes with having just left the USA and the joys over there. I’m truly thankful for both places.
Again, thank you for caring and for praying. Thanks to all of you who wrote to say you were praying for us. The Lord is so gracious.
The rainy season is almost over in our area, which means the heat of West Africa will soon be upon us. This morning did bring a few minutes of drizzle, so that definitely signaled the need to stop unpacking and get out with the camera! I’m thankful to the Lord for continuously revealing His delightful wonders, such as this small web, seen in my back yard today.
I sure do appreciate your prayers as I get back into the work at the CRC & Print Shop. Please be in prayer for the safe arrival of a container that shipped out on August 24. It’s loaded with supplies for our hospital, Print Shop, CRC, and missionaries.
With thanksgiving to you and for you,
