We have finished our first three weeks of language school and are looking forward to the break. The last three weeks have been very intense. Our Kiswahili teacher Jacken has been great! He said that we are doing great. We will continue in January with our intermediate and advanced classes. It is intersting to go to church now and understand most of what they are saying. Carson is doing excellent and he can actually converse in Swahili already. Dana and I are a little behind him.
As school has been going on, we still have had many other things going on as well. We have had sickness at the AGC Baby Centre with many babies having viruses. We cleaned the entire BC this last Saturday from top to bottom, Todd Eckhardt and Bill Bucher were here and helped out with carrying beds back in. They were also here in country to launch the Africa Gospel Church Men with Vision Chapter. We met to look at the MWV project for 2013. It will be a new training complex out next to water project in Salgaa.
We are working on some updates on babies that will come out this week in our newsletter. We are also continuing to work on new projects at the BC. I look forward to showcasing some of these in the next few weeks. We have met with a Biogas company and are working with them to install one here at the BC to take care of all of the kitchen gas needs. These are some of the small steps we are taking towards self-sustainability.
We praise God for being with us through language school these last three weeks. We praise God for watching over the babies and His healing touch upon them. We thank God for our guards and the protection they provide for all of us each night. We thank God for our prayer warriors. We thank God for our financial team members.
Please continue to pray for us, missing family and friends. We also dearly miss our church family. Pray as we continue with changes and transitions here at the BC. We are re-organizing the office, and going through many operational changes, we pray for guidance and wisdom. We have some wonderful people here at the BC, and are looking forward to seeing how God uses their gifts, talents and abilities to further our ministry here.
