Prizing Community

After our last post, we left to spend some time in Michigan with Community Baptist Church. While we're here I am helping the church develop a curriculum addressing the various challenges we face as Christians at each life stage. From my experience, it's too easy to forget what it was like to be a teenager, or to be completely shocked by the responsibilities of being a parent with young children. On the other side, I can't pretend to know what it's like to feel "Lost in the Middle." Each transition in our lives gives us an opportunity to demonstrate our new identity found through the gospel. And it's been my job to begin to cull resources and to outline a path for courses to prepare people for these changes. I am enjoying the assignment and also the chance to develop relationships with the people of CBC.

We are also thankful for the hospitality of God's people that have made this extended period in Michigan a reality. God has been so good to provide each of our needs (and even beyond our requests) every step of the way!
Please continue to pray for wisdom for the leaders of the churches I visit as they seek the Lord's desires for the use of their resources. Pray that God would provide for us to leave for Kenya on 27 May 2013.
Thank you for keeping us in your prayers!
