February Newsletter Update and Invitation

DEAR FRIENDS!!! Here is our latest news and an invitation to come say bye....
 
MISSIONS CONFERENCE:

Thank you for praying for us in these last few busy months in the States. In January, we had the huge blessing of participating in Denton Bible Church's third missions conference, “Proclaim”. There were over 50 Denton Bible Church- SERVE missionaries, as well as many other organizations represented at the conference. SERVE has missionaries serving in 11 different countries in the world and for the entire week all of us DBC missionaries spent time fellowshiping together, encouraging one another, and being fed spiritually by several wonderful godly speakers. What a wonderful blessing it was to spend with our SERVE family from around the world. The weekend was spent in the church wide conference hearing  about how Christian leaders are being taught and discipled all over the world.

KARIBUNI and ASANTENI

We want to say a special Karibuni (Welcome) to all of our new friends who recently joined our prayer team and email updates. Welcome to the Kenya Team! We really enjoyed meeting and talking with each and everyone of you at the DBC Missions Conference and at various small groups we have participated in in the last few weeks. A special ASANTENI (thank you) also to those who have recently joined our team through their financial support as well. God continues to provide and we are almost at 100% of our support goal. We are so greatful! Please keep praying that the remaining monthly support will be provided before we leave.

FUN in the SUN
Soon after the missions conference we escaped the unusual snow and cold wintry weather in Denton and headed to the West Coast to visit family and supporters in Seattle, San Francisco, and Orange County. What a wonderful, encouraging, relaxing and WARM time we had there. We were even blessed with the opportunity to take Anjela to see her favorite princesses in Disneyland for the first time. This was so fun and refreshing for all of us. You should have seen her face!! You can visit Dennis' facebook pages for pictures

HOW CAN YOU PRAY FOR US?
PLEASE PRAY for sanity, strength and, good health, and safety as we run our final lap/month here in Kenya seeing  remaining supporters, meeting new ones, and saying our goodbyes. Allison and Anjela will be traveling to N. Carolina to say goodbye to her family March 1-8th and Dennis will be going to Mississippi for a pastor's conference.

PRAY too that the business of life will not distract us from what is MOST important – Time with God and time with family.

WE LOVE YOU ALL and appreciate your love, support, and partnership in ministry. We couldn't serve as we are serving without your prayers!!

Love,
Dennis, Allison, and Anjela
