I hope you are all doing well since the last time you read from us. If you have read our family blog lately you know that Allison and Anjela made it back to Kenya safely and are happy to be home and to be with B.J. again. After dealing with bad respiratory infections just before and during their travels they are finally well again. Everyone is doing well but we still have yet another week til our whole family will be together again. By the time I (Dennis) return to Kenya it will have been 4 months of separation for us as a family. So needless to say I am looking forward with much anticipation to being reunited with my family. Allison and the kids are doing fine and Allison and Anjela are slowly adjusting to being back in the Mombasa heat and all that pertains to it:) It has been an unusually difficult transition for them compared to other times but they are persevering!!
I, on the other hand, woke up in Dallas this morning at our team mate Ben's Parents home. We are flying to Washington, DC today to attend a meeting that could change the face of our ministry tremendously. I cannot disclose much detail at the moment because I have none, but what I can say is that we are looking to partner with a ministry that is teaching pastors in most parts of West, Central and East Africa to do ministry in Kenya. If all goes well we may be overseeing over 40 BTCP classes in Kenya which is a great leap from our 5 at the moment.
So without saying much we desperately need your prayers and the Lord's guidance in the next few days! Pray for Mike Scheer (The Missions Pastor, Denton Bible Church and SERVE International Director), Chris Cobble (Associate Missions Pastor, Denton Bible Church and BTCP Coordinator for SERVE International), myself and Ben Warren as we we travel today for this meeting. Pray:
- We will have safe travel and less airport frustration as we fly to DC
- God will give us wisdom to be slow to speak and quick to listen to His voice as we meet to decide which direction to steer the ministry of SERVE Kenya.
- This will be a time of bonding and encouragement as Ben and I spend extended time with each other and with our bosses.
- The Lord's Will will be done as we meet to map out a partnership with this ministry.
Thank you for your prayers and for your support for SERVE Kenya since the first day! God bless and let us know how we can pray for you as well.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!!
Dennis (for Allison, Anjela, and B.J. too)
