Abby & I leave tonight for about a month in Zambia (Livingstone and Mongu), Namibia (Katima Mulilo) and England (Wolverhampton). In Zambia and Namibia, we'll be joining up with our dear friend and GTN colleague, Percy Muleba. It'll be great to see him, his wife, Muyunda, and his girls, Thabo and Nsala. His oldest daughter, Natasha, is away in nursing school. We'll also see other old and new friends while we're there. In Mongu, we'll be training youth leaders and, in Livingstone, we'll be encouraging some of our former students and mentees.
In England, we'll visit for a few days with our U.S. friend and new missionary, Cheri Contes, and her kids, Hannah and Evan. I (Doug) will have the privilege of preaching in the church she is helping to plant there. Should be exciting!
Would you pray for us while we're away? Would you pray for our kids, Jen, James, Emily and Andrew, and our grandsons, Isaac, Luke and Zachary? And would you pray for safe and uneventful travel, great health, the inspiration and leadership of the Holy Spirit, a loving and enthusiastic team spirit, and the transformation of our students by God's grace!
