I just wanted to let you all know what I will be doing over the next few weeks so that you all can be praying for me, and so you don’t scratch your head when you see posts that are coming from another country.
I will be leaving for South Africa next Wednesday to do mission work with Proclaim! International. I am very excited as I will get a chance to do many of the things that I love: coaching, teaching, preaching, leadership development, maybe a little worship leading. This happened pretty quickly and I was not sure whether or not it was going to work out, but I eager to go and see what God has in store for me there. Please be in prayer for me if you could.
I have to confess that I am am not sure that I had anticipated having the opportunity to be able to do mission work on four different continents when I was younger. I have to confess that I did not think that I would have visited four different continents when I was younger. It has been a lesson for me in how to adapt to different cultures, climates, and governmental systems. As someone that grew up in a very monolythic culture in Wyoming I can honestly say that the growing curve has been steep but enjoyable.
I will try to use this blog to post journal entries, photos, and videos so please bear with me as I attempt to learn how to make this page work for me. I will also be posting on my Facebook page and Instagram if you are into that sort of thing.
Pray mostly for my wife as she will have to deal with my four wonderful children in the time I am gone. I have never been away from home this long. She is a very loving and capable person, but four wonderful kids are still four kids.
