DAK Ministry Update, March 15, 2014

Dear Friends,

Full to Overflowing! That describes my opportunities in 2014. Trying to keep up with the various engagements is my challenge of the year. In the first three months, this has included – checking for two translation teams, teaching two Bible school courses, fulfilling my responsibilities as member of the ANTBA board, and responding to a growing number of solicitations for counsel and resources in the area of translation training. The rest of this year promises to be just as full. For those interested, see the end of this letter for a chart of these activities.

But before we launch into the next quarter of the year, Daniel and I will be taking a break, a pause from all of these activities in order to rejuvenate ourselves, celebrate, and reconnect with family and with some of you in Ontario. Steve and Linda Weber, who so graciously lent us a car in 2011, cannot do it this time but, instead, they have offered an apartment across the street from their home in the countryside just outside Listowel, Ontario. This will be a perfect and quiet place for R and R! We are so thankful for this opportunity. We did not get around to celebrating our twentieth wedding anniversary last year, but Daniel suggested that we wait until this year so we could celebrate my parents’ 60th with them on April 17! All that and the opportunity to meet most of our new grandnieces and nephews (5 out of 6)! So plans are to leave on April 4 and return to Burkina on May 11. We are so thankful that the Canadian government issued Daniel a FIVE year visa, which will allow him to come and go as he wishes!

If you would really like a visit from us either personally or as a church and hear more about how we are doing, please do contact us in the next weeks, so we can include you in our plans. We plan to limit ourselves to visits in Ontario this time.

A few prayer and praise items

Thank-you again for your prayer and financial support. It is always an encouragement to hear from any of you and see new donors and returning donors for our financial support. May you be blessed as we and our ministry have been blessed through you. For those on Facebook, you can follow more frequent updates through our WordShare Prayer Page.
