Virtual Equip Update

Wow. The Lord has been answering your prayers. Equip virtual orientation is going well. The internet has been generally dependable for all, praise God.

God has also provided grace and strength. The total number of online hours makes this significantly more fatiguing (in a different way) than if we were together. And it's been more challenging to make relational connections.

But this group has been amazing and persistent and flexible and engaging and grace-filled. They've been taking advantage of every opportunity we do have and making the most of them. Those with small children have been especially resourceful when it comes to staying engaged and also keeping the "littles" happy.

The Crew has been brainstorming regularly to adjust and tweak all types of little things. God has granted us enough time and space and mental energy. Very grateful to be a part of this team.

Please keep praying. We'll have most of Saturday and all of Sunday off. Pray for rest and renewal. We will finish at the end of the day next Thursday.

So grateful for you. May the Lord bring you moments of sweet joy today. Let me know of ways I might pray with you.

Praise and Prayer

This is a time to praise the Lord:
  • God is Sovereign over all and Jesus is RISEN!
  • Equip orientation planning is almost complete
  • My family and I are healthy and sheltered in our places
  • Technology helps me continue to serve and to stay connected with family and friends


Equip orientation, April 18-30, will be held "virtually." Pray for:
  • The participants and crew as we all navigate technology in new ways
  • The crew as we "practice" with all the technology this coming week
  • Wisdom and deep insight for the crew
  • Consistent internet for all
  • Good rest and renewal for all between our online sessions
The two Connection (reentry/care programs) for May have been canceled.
  • Pray for encouragement for those who had planned to come
  • Ask God to provide love and care for each missionary and family where they are 
Very grateful for your faithful prayers and gifts for my Wycliffe ministry. The Lord is using you to impact so many colleagues. May He continue to encourage your heart today with His faithfulness. Let me know other ways I might pray, too.

Peace to you,
