This week DML will be holding it's annual team conference. We were all supposed to be together in Ethiopia (and the team was so excited!) but alas, we now have to do our retreat virtually.
Each of our teams is going to a retreat place with their team, and we will be together on Zoom for 4.5 hours per day. The rest of their time is to do team building, strategic planning, as well as resting and relaxing. We expect there will be around 50 of us in total. These retreats can happen thanks to the generous support of many of you!
This has been a tough year for many of our partners, beyond the pandemic. We covet your prayers for both ability to connect with good connectivity as well as a Sabbath rest for the teams as they are away from their typical routine.
And speaking of our teams, our team in Ghana was very busy last week with a Work as Worship retreat as well as prayer walks. Work as Worship retreats are an important times where business people get to share how they are doing their work as an act of worship. We need to hear from each other about how this gets practical, wherever we work! And prayer walks are a chance for us to reclaim our streets for Christ, and for Him to show us our cities from a different perspective. We hear great testimonies from those who walk their city streets every day but something different happens when they walk it in a prayer walk. Very powerful!
These Work as Worship retreats and Prayer Walks are not just taking place in Ghana but in many of the cities where DML is working.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:
