Preparation


July 27, 2014
 Prayer

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7.

A Baby Bedroom

Some of your have been interested in seeing our developing nursery.  So here you go...



It is quickly becoming my favorite room in the house.  We are so thankful for the many generous gifts of friends and family and for finding nice things on Craigs List.  This little one will be well provided for.  Two years ago, we packed many baby items to bring with to Congo-hoping for a baby in the near future.  We are amazed at how everything goes to good use out here.  The locally made mahogany rocking chair and cradle are our unique additions.



Our baby homecoming outfit will be made with this.
Love the vibrant colors



Nyankunde Sports Camp
We have been pleased to get to know three amazing young people from California these past 3 weeks: Sarah, Mec, and Troy.  These young people came to conduct the third annual Nyankunde Youth Sports Camp and to encourage the young people in their walks with God through the study of the teachings of Jesus in the book of Matthew.  They are a delightful bunch and so encouraging to the Congolese youth, each with a witness of how God is working in their lives.  It is amazing how they have formed strong friendships cross-culturally.

Many Congolese students from previous years’ camps have had their university studies funded with the promise of returning to Nyankunde after graduation to give back and be part of the re-building process.  It has been very encouraging to meet many of these Congolese youth.  Pray for the missions team as they return tomorrow.



Thanks for your love and support in our lives.  Stay tuned as we wait in expectation...
