Currently we are in Atlanta at the MTW headquarters. Regina and I are undergoing intense training in support team building and the necessary logistics that come with being a missionary. That’s five long days of seminars and discussions. We have met a lot of great people here at the headquarters, as well as reconnecting with long-time friends we have known since our initial involvement with MTW nine years ago. As the training sessions continue, much of our anxieties are being transformed into eagerness.
The somewhat daunting task of raising funds becomes less and less intimidating as we are reminded that this is God’s plan. He is the one who has called us. He is the one who has brought us thus far. He is the one who has gone ahead of us to lay it upon the hearts of all those who want to participate with our ministry. Pray for a faithful support team to help us in this important ministry to the Cherokee people.
After posting this update, we must do some homework in preparation for tomorrow’s sessions. We have a lot to learn and do. Please pray for our stamina during our seminars and that we don’t rely on ourselves, but on the Lord’s strength.
