We’ve just been through another period of no-internet, but we’ve been so busy that we’ve hardly noticed. Â We have some crazy months coming up, and this is our last week to get ready before the busyness begins. Â Here’s what’s coming…
TMS Team: 7 guys from The Master’s Seminary coming to consider joining us here in Lilongwe to help with the seminary that’s in the plans. Â They’re all staying at our house and Rachel’s cooking for them.
The Kopps: Some friends of ours from southern California are adopting from Ethiopia and “stopping by on the way.” Â It’s a quick visit, but they’re jumping right in and Matt Kopp is going to teach a session at youth camp while they’re here!
Youth Camp: Matt’s the main speaker at our church’s youth camp again this year, so we’re all going out to the Lake for 3 nights to spend some time with the 13-18 year old crowd.
TMC Team: 7 college students from The Master’s College coming to help scout other ministries in Lilongwe so that we can make a list of credible, helpful resources, organizations with whom we can partner and to whom we can refer people. Â We’re also going to take them to Mozambique to spend some time helping a missionary that our church supports there. Â They’re all staying at our house and Rachel’s cooking for them.
The Floreens: Matt’s parents are coming to visit us for 2 1/2 weeks. Â We’ll put them to work a little bit, but we’re also going to take some time away with them.
Grace Church Team: 28 high schoolers and leaders from Grace Community Church coming to help with construction projects related to the upcoming seminary. Â And yes, they’re all staying at our house and Rachel’s cooking for them.
MABC Classes: Matt’s taking his first full year of classes pursuing his MA in Biblical Counseling. Â He’s doing pre-session work from now through June, we’ll all be traveling to California in July for 3 weeks of classes, and then he’ll do post-session work through October.
Whew! Â These things arenâ€™t all at the same time, but they do all overlap, so itâ€™s going to be pretty busy around here.Â And it starts this coming Saturday with the TMS Team!Â Weâ€™ll post as we go and try to keep you updated on all these things.
