Less than 100 days
We are within 100 days of leaving for the Congo. What an exciting time! Please pray as we seek to gather a strong support team and as we prepare our hearts to serve. We are reading a GREAT book on cultural intelligence where we are measuring our individual ability to engage successfully (in Congo) and are learning the importance of really knowing the culture of the people we seek to love in order to do so effectively. This is quite a feat for Westerners! My next couple of posts will be dedicated to sharing some things about the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Congolese. Stay tuned!
