Family & Friends,
The day has finally come. Six months waiting and preparing are down to 24 hrs until take off. “Houston, Portland, Kigali, we don’t have a problem and are ready for lift off.” My eyes are better than ever after two surgeries, and I begin teaching my Old Testament Survey class on March 3!
Alan Hotchkiss, our U.S. director, gave me a warning. “In four months in Rwanda you will hit a wall. The good news is that you know it is coming. The bad news is that you know it is coming.” June 28, 2014 is the due date for the wall. I have it marked on my calendar. I’ve already started to pray it will be a great day and I’ll climb the wall, stand on it and shout “Praise God.” My next Friesen Fortnightly will be from Rwanda, the land of a thousand hills.
Don’t “return” this to write me, but rather write directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
