I have never run a marathon, and probably never will. My sports tend towards cycling, SCUBA and kayaking, and the idea of plodding along, soaked in sweat and barely able to gasp enough air into desperate lungs has little, if any, appeal to me. However, based on finish line videos we have seen we feel right now like we are in the last phase of a marathon. We are finishing up the support raising process, working to get the house ready to rent, meeting with churches, working on visas for Mexico, shipping our stuff to La Paz and discovering the uncountable details needing to be cared for prior to the move. In this last paragraph you will discover a bunch of embedded prayer requests.
While the move back is taking a lot of our time, we are both still active in our jobs as well. I, Steve, just got back from an excellent conference on stewardship of the earth. The conference was sponsored by the Lausanne Movement and TEAM was given two of the 100 available slots. If creation care (environmental missions) interests you, send me an email – I’d love to discuss this topic with you.
Another highlight was a block party Lois and a neighbor across the street organized. The successful party was an attempt to get our neighbors to know each other. It was a delightful time. It was an encouragement to us to see our neighbors talking, mingling and getting acquainted.
IMMEDIATE NEXT STEPS
Our current plans call for us to move into the TEAM apartments in Carol Stream, IL on September 1 and to leave for Mexico on October 1. On August 20 we will be holding an open house at TEAM’s missions place in Wheaton. We would love to have you drop by for a visit. This will be informative and will be a means of presenting to everyone what our work is and as a means of saying “Thank You” to a lot of wonderful people.
