Louise and I were so blessed at the New Wineskins Conference this past weekend. To use the terminology of a younger generation - we were totally blown away!
But this conference also marked the beginning of a new life for us. We met with Denise Cox of the Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders to discuss our future involvement with SAMS as our sending agency. SAMS has proved to be one of the best mission agencies out there and it would be a privilege for us to work with them. We also had a chance to meet with our future "bosses", Bishop Grant and Doctor Wendy LeMarquand and to chew the fat over a cup of good Ridgecrest Coffee.
Our discernment has now morphed into a call...and we are all anticipation to see how the Lord will work through the many different things we need to do in order to be ready to go next year August. We are entering into a brave new world in many respects and cannot wait to see how things will work together for good...not only for our good, but for the good of those our Lord is leading us to serve.
Pray for us.
