Greetings from Chad

Yes, we made it. It was a wonderfully safe trip. Thanks for praying for our driving part to the East from Tucson. We visited my dad and other family in Wichita, plus, a supporting church there. Dad is doing very well too.  We stayed with our daughter, her husband and family in Hickory, NC for almost a week. Great times with the grands and I helped move their washer and dryer from the basement to the main level. Lots more work than anticipated, but always glad to help.  Aren’t projects usually like that?  For us it’s always such a pleasure visiting family and friends along the way.

Our flights went great with minimal waiting between them. The longer, nearly 9 hours, from Atlanta to Paris seemed to go fast.

The N’Djamena airport looked brand new and it appears to be fully open. It now has an escalator, better lighting, good signage, air conditioning and our experience going through was the best yet. Always amazing to see how many foreigners are coming to Chad. The SIL facility in Chad looks great, as expected. Our old apartment was waiting for us and we are nearly unpacked and settled in.  It is good to be back here and see our dear colleagues! Temps are still warm with humidity so we feel like we are in Louisiana. Thankful for the AC in our bedroom.

We will do our best to keep you well informed during this six-month assignment. As always we continually count on your prayers. Here are some now:

*That we stay in good health

*That we maintain a good life balance, spiritual, physical, mental, emotional.

*That neither of us will allow work to push our lives out of balance. (we have a very hard time keeping this one.) Judy will be returning to be the guest apartment coordinator and I to maintenance project manager.

*That our families have peace about our being here for this season.

*That our Wycliffe ministry funding will get back up to 100% . Currently we are at 75%

*That we will be the light and love of Jesus to all we meet and work with.

Please feel free to let us know you are praying for us and in what ways we can pray for you.
