Back to Work

As many of you know, Jenny and I share a birthday in mid-October. We were born in different years but on the same day of the year. As you might imagine, we often celebrate it like an extra anniversary. This year our birthday happened to coincide with the timing of a retreat for our missionary team organized to reconnect as families. Our family had not traveled at all since the lockdown began in March, so it was good to get away for a few days and to have a chance enjoy one another and God's creation.

Since returning, I have been busy mostly with pastoral responsibilities. We're involved in regular counseling, and I'm working with the pastoral staff to keep track of members we haven't seen during lockdown and teaching our church's membership class. I've also been working to keep up on my studies and discussing next year's opportunities to train African pastors for ministry. It looks like I will be teaching Hebrew next semester. The one class will be offered both locally and as an online class for students at Central Africa Baptist University.
