This has been a couple of wonderful weeks of training here at MTI. We have been working through how to properly function in your target culture. This involves many different aspects of life in a different culture. The staff has been excellent. We have made friends here for eternity. We have grown very close to our classmates and Friday will be a difficult day of goodbyes. Our group of 64 people are going to some 20 different countries on 4 different continents. Most of our classmates will deploy in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
We are looking forward to getting back to Indiana and to family and friends. This Sunday we will be at our home church and will be speaking in several of the small church classes. We are looking forward to sharing with many of you our experiences here in Colorado.
Our funding continues to increase, however it is behind where we need to be. We are very hopeful to close that gap in the next two weeks so we can stay on target for the middle of August to fly out to the field.
We thank God today for the opportunity to be at such a wonderful training facility with excellent staff. They have many years of field experience and are great at giving us practical tools to use on the field.
Please keep the Baby Centre and the Ngata area in your prayers as they have been experiencing some thefts in the area. We look forward to getting there on the ground and joining the team.
Also please pray for our trip home that it will be without incident.
We will be seeing alot of you on Sunday!!
