Good morning on this beautiful spring day,
Resurrection Sunday might be over, but because He lives we can face tomorrow…everyone of them. Thank you Jesus for the power over sin and the grave.
Thank you team for praying for us as we traveled the US heading west to Tucson, after our arrival in the US March 15. We had some really good visits with family, friends and partners we hadn’t seen in years and for that we are very grateful. We arrived in Tucson Wednesday afternoon April 12. We unpacked and repacked and are out in California where we celebrated Easter at our church in Escondido with our family.
We will be in Southern California for 10 days to 2 weeks to see family, friends, and ministry partners. We are ready to not be traveling and to get settled back into ministry and life in Tucson. We will officially begin our Mexico SIL work remotely in Tucson May 3. But the travel won’t be over for long. Jim will be heading to Central African Republic or CAR, June 10-June 26, to teach the French version of the JAARS Inc. motorcycle safety and maintenance program to 28 men and women who work with ACATAB, the national Bible translation organization of CAR. They need to complete this course so they can safely ride and maintain the JAARS donated motorcycles which will greatly aid them in their language development, translation, and literacy work. Jim was supposed to do this last Oct but it was cancelled for security concerns.
Please continue to keep our future plans in your prayers. We are excited about some possibilities when we finish serving the SIL Mexico Branch in Tucson this Sept. We have looked at and prayed about several options and feel we have some clearer direction. Details coming soon.
