Well, we're still waiting for a more solid country assignment, something more than just Africa! Nothing yet though. There has been talk about sending us to East Democratic Republic of Congo, but no official word yet. For those of you who don't know, that's a bit of a "tough" neighborhood, and if we would go there, we'd be learning French in Quebec before we leave. But nothing is set in stone yet, we're still waiting on the regional director to concact us. Unfortunately, he's pretty busy right now with travel all over the U.S., accomplishing some ministry partnership; he's a little hard to get a hold of (or maybe we're just being impatient!). So, for now we just sit and wait, checking our email whenever we get a chance, hoping we'll have new mail.
We're also done with all of our candidacy classes; now we're on to a two week "ministry partnership" seminar (code for support raising). After that, we'll be traveling around the country finding more individuals and churches who are excited about what God is doing through MAF around the world.
That's all for now, we'll let you know more when we know more! Thanks again for all your prayers and support!
