Well, a lot has been happening in the past few weeks! Joy and I just completed two weeks of training with MAF International in Ashford, England, and are now at MAF HQ in Nampa, Idaho for a week of standard debrief prior to our furlough.
Many of you probably received the letter we just sent/e-mailed out a few weeks ago with an initial speaking schedule we had lined up throughout the eastern part of the country. In the past few days and weeks it's become obvious that we needed to make some significant changes to our schedule. Below is a copy of a new letter that we wrote, that was just mailed out today. Those of you who receive our letters via e-mail will get it within the next day or two. The rest should have it sometime in the next two weeks.
Please take a few minutes to read it--especially if you're in the central or eastern part of the country and if you were planning to come to one of our speaking events this fall. You can right click and save it to your desktop or wherever, and then zoom in on it to make it larger, which should make it easy to read. Alternatively you can go to our MAF staff page and scroll down the right side to our prayer letters, and download the pdf version. It may be a few days before this letter is posted there, but it'll be there soon.
Later this fall, after we've had some time to take a breather we'll be doing some sharing in the northwest--mostly in the Gresham/Portland area. When we have dates for those, I'll post them here. In the meantime, we're mostly focused on getting the rest and rejuvenation we need. Thanks for understanding.
