Training and Turkeys

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

We have been in Idaho for over 2 weeks now and have passed our half way point in our leadership training. As we have accepted and been accepted into a management position with MAF they want to try to prepare us in the best way possible and not only in how to do a budget or ministry plan but how to continue to develop ourselves in the discipline of leadership and to empower and encourage those we have a privilege to lead. 

We have been doing this training along side some great friends from Kinshasa Matthew and Lisa Lind; Lisa and I have been apart of the 'soft stuff' training with member care in the mornings and Matthew and Nick continue on in the afternoon with more technical skills.

While here we also had the opportunity to celebrate American Thanksgiving. It was tons of fun with about 30 ppl involved with lots of food and games planned by Joselyn Thiemann who's husband was in Kinshasa helping with some avionics stuff when our electrical box started on fire. Awesome people.

We will be heading to Ontario for Christmas in about 2 weeks and we are so excited to spend some great time with family and friends there. I hope that everyone is having a great start to their Christmas season!!!!


Support our Ministry with MAF

Managers / Pilots / Mechanics / Administrators are needed on the field. As a pilot and advisor, Nick plays a very important role of flying and advising on operations in the WDRC program. DRC is one of the most difficult places to do 'business' there are as many or more difficulties going into the office then flying over the jungles of Congo. However difficult his job is a necessary one; there are numerous isolated places and people in Congo that need MAF to be here.

The only way that we can continue to do the work that Gad has laid before us in Congo is by your generous donations.

We are aware that some partner with us for only a season which leaves an opportunity for others to come along side our ministry; because of that we are always looking those who will partner with us in our ministry with MAF to be able to keep our fundraising goal at 100%. Would you prayerfully ask God if He is prompting you to be a part of our ministry?
