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!!!!
