As for me, I am heading out to Ghana and then to Kenya again, leaving on September 11. (I tend to fly out on September 11 - it must be that there are cheap flights that day for some reason!) I will be teaching Church-based Business as Mission for one week at the Presbyterian Training Center for about 75 pastors and church leaders; then I will be teaching one week in Accra with ICM Ghana for about 35 pastors. After that, I will be flying to Kenya for a few days of meetings, and then starting an eight day Training of Trainers, with trainers coming from Egypt, Uganda, and of course Kenya.
Michael and I will also be back to Skyping for the five weeks that I'm gone; it's true that much of our relationship was built on Skype and we are happy to have it - but of course we prefer being together in person!
Update: Our prayer partner, Mary Springer, focused in last week's blog, did pass away on Saturday, August 29. Thanks to all of you who prayed. We are thankful that her pain is now over and we are thankful to God for a life well lived. We will miss her.
