Quick Update from ORD

We're sitting in the airport in Chicago, waiting for our flight to London to begin. We had a great time in Toronto for two weeks of this month. Our language instruction was centered on helping us make average Kenyans our Swahili teachers. We're looking forward to employing those methods soon. The highlight of our time was the camaraderie of our class. It was great to see how the Lord bringing people to himself from Bosnia, the Far East, the Near East, East Africa and West Africa. The joy of linguistics is knowing that one day every language shall praise our Treasure, the Lord Jesus.

As I check through my agenda of dozens of last-minute items, I am so grateful to the Lord for his shepherding us to this point. He is keeping his promises and accomplishing his plan to purify a people through your sacrificial investments and our partnership.
Would you be willing to pray for us as we travel through the night tonight and most of the day tomorrow? We'll be recovering from jet lag most of the weekend, I imagine, and making necessary adjustments to Kenyan culture for the rest of our lives.
I feel privileged to know all of you are behind us in this endeavor and to know that our Great Shepherd is guiding and keeping us on right paths for his name sake.
