Living in international community has it's joys and challenges. Some weeks we settle into our routine, go about our ministries, tend to our families, and life goes on as usual with little excitement. Then come weeks like this one with numerous airport runs, new people to see, dear friends to reunite with, and lots of fun extra events to look forward to! My personality much prefers a "normal" routine; I live steady. But it's fun to shake things up every now and then!
Our colleagues, Billy and Joanna Coppege arrived last week. Our Retreat Speakers, Regional Directors, Field Pastors and a Member Care rep from headquarters arrive this week. A new family with WGM, Matt and Joy Burke arrived Monday. They will be serving Jesus in Jinja with their two small children. Such a flurry of guests arriving before Field Retreat next week! Whew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it- but I'm sure there will be some fabulous stories to be told and photos to be seen in the weeks to come! Stay tuned!!
