To Africa

I've taken a bit of time off from blogging for a number of reasons, but I thought it worthwhile to mention that I'll be leaving for Africa next week. Ten days will be spent in Kenya working with a Kenyan ministry based in Nairobi. The remainder will be spent visiting an old friend of mine in Uganda.

A tremendous amount of work has gone into this trip already. I have the dubious honor of leading the trip and was initially reluctant to take on the responsibility. But God has stretched me through it, and I feel honored to be laboring alongside such a neat bunch of people. I see growth in them, as well, and we haven't even boarded the planes.

Though I could write a bit about the process to date, I suspect the tales from the trip itself will be most interesting to readers in general. I still have much to do, but I'm excited to see what God has in store for us and the people we're going to serve.
I do want to thank all those who contributed financially to this trip and/or are supporting me in prayer. It's humbling to be the recipient of such tremendous generosity.

I have to say the one downside to this extraordinary opportunity is that I'll miss my wife and kids terribly. I already do and I haven't even left yet. Sweeties all three.
