Trusting God for the path ahead
Praise the Lord for a good finish at language school in France! This extra time has increased my fluidity in French and has been a blessing to deepen relationships, including with an amazing international Connect Group through Hillsong Paris.
This weekend I will visit the Hoffman family in Albertville, France, and it has been good to spend some time with the Wright family here. Thanks for your continued prayer for our team, including two other families who are preparing to begin their French formation!
Please pray for an upcoming meeting with a French urban planner who will be doing some design work in Cameroon. We plan to discuss experiences in West Africa, and I'm eager to learn more technical design terms in French through the process.
I'm looking forward to seeing many of you in the States this summer! I will be back in mid-May to connect with partners and to lead a project trip, possibly back to Congo-Kinshasha or somewhere else in the world.
The target date for my move to Senegal is now December 2015, as God has opened some opportunities for me to connect with design professionals around Paris and to learn more specific design terminology. I plan to also lead an EMI team to northern Benin in September for a hospital master-plan project.
