Nairobi next week...

Garry heads to Nairobi next week! This will be a first for our family as none of us have been to Africa before. We are excited to see what God has in mind for his week there as he joins in an audit and a seminar. It's a small seminar geared toward Safety Managers setting up Safety Management Systems. The content and the people promise to be exciting!

Last week Garry and Kevin were busy trying to finish up the shed they've been building (and I think they just finished their part, at least for now!). Kevin has also been getting things organised for school as he's taking some classes at Steinbach Bible College this semester. Kaleb has been busy fixing bicycles and doing animation. Here's his little shop with some of his projects. 

As we think about moving to Spokane and saying goodbye to friends and places we've come to love in a new way over the past two years, we as a family have been talking a lot about relationships. The value of honest relationships. The purpose of living as the Body of Christ, reaching out to one another and the world. The deep satisfaction of following Jesus Christ, not only individually but corporately. Both the pain and the joy of living in community and the deep loss when there is no community. The fellowship of the Godhead among Itself. The call, the privilege, the responsibility.

It's pretty big. Universal and yet individual. What a blessing to be part of God's family that reaches around the world!
