Thelander visit - We had a wonderful time this past week with Keir and Joanna. They stayed at our home from Thursday through Monday. It was a joy to connect and "hang out" and dream of future times in Bongolo. Keir and Joanna had opportunities to speak with small groups at our church, Centerville Community Church. Keir and I spoke at the Sunday services. Keir gave a short message on "the fight" for men and women and their souls. I had the opportunity to give testimony to God's calling for the Lanes to serve at Bongolo. For those interested, the audio is posted at the CCC website - click here.
CMA Application - We continue through this process, finishing up the required Alliance Polity course. We are awaiting notice from the International Missions office to schedule a Level 2 interview. After that I am told the next step is Board approval and commissioning in Sept or Oct. We look to then start fundraising with plans to begin language school in mid-2016.
Downsizing - God is so good. We put our home up for sale and sold it within one week. Praise Him. We will be moving to a condo in June. We plan to keep this for our use when home and for others to use while we are away. Busy next few months of packing stuff, selling stuff, and moving stuff.
