Car is in good shape, Tom ready to travel.
In our last post, we talked about the ways that we are plugging into our local setting and our local church. However, in October we are not around too much. Tom will be travelling to Minnesota to share in churches on Sunday the 3rd, and 10th, and then again later Sunday the 24th to Lansing, Michigan.
We really look forward to seeing our friends & churches again. Lisa won't be able to travel, as we have to keep home life consistent for the kids schooling. But she sends her happy greetings along with Tom.
Please continue to pray for all of the kids as they transition back into life in America this year.
Pray for Ben. He has been welcomed by some kids he knew as a 1st grader in 2001. He has enjoyed renewing those relationships. Pray for him as his new high school has over 2000 students. That is a big change from Dakar Academy, enrolling only 240 students k-12.
Pray for Caleb as he is beginning 5th grade. He likes his class, and God has given him good friends who live next door, all of them going to his school, one in his class. Pray that his heart would be tender towards God and he would apply himself.
Pray for Hilary at John Brown University. We have watched her grow up so much in the last 5 weeks. She is enjoying the schools' program, gotten involved in a local church choir, and found a job on campus. She has made a lot of friends but is still looking for that one close friend who would be an encouragement and a spur towards spiritual growth.
Thanks for stopping by,
Tom & Lisa
