Will you be at the General Conference 2015 ?
 
That is what we find ourselves asking often, these days.  In July the Free Methodist Church-USA has its quadrennial meeting—this time in Orlando, Florida.  Most of us Africa missionaries and some international Africa guests will have responsibility as hosts in the Africa missions display area.  We also will participate in quite a number of general and special meetings.  Vickie is preparing for a teaching she will present at a missions resourcing day, ahead of GC15.  She also has been working on material to be presented at the International ChildCare Ministries 50-year celebration.  Mike is preparing for an Africa report at a “power lunch.”  We also hope to connect with as many of our supporters as possible.  Say “Hey!” to us, if you see us before we see you!
Togo - Ethiopia Trip

We traveled to Togo and Ethiopia toward the end of April.  The Togo church started a village primary school a couple years ago, in connection with Village Church Planting in Tchore.  ICCM decided to partner with this school.  On this visit we distributed water filters and Vickie gave training to the ICCM team that is forming, for Togo.
Bible School Teachers Wanted

The FMC Kenya trains many of its pastors at Hope Springs Bible School.  They have modules coming up in August and in December.  We are helping them look for pastors who might be able to come and help with teaching for a couple weeks.  If you think you might have any interest in this—even if for the future—please let us know so we can provide more details!  Welcome to Kenya!
Now in Ivory Coast - Guinea Bissau

About the time you are reading this, Mike will be on a trip to Ivory Coast and Guinea Bissau.  In Ivory Coast he and Rev. Dosseh (of Togo) will be presenting the next training for Village Church Planting.  In Guinea Bissau, they anticipate a formal opening of the work as Free Methodist.  Pray for safe travels, for God’s Spirit to guide them and use them in reaching out to Free Methodist’s in both countries.
A few prayer points
  • Pray for Whitley Grimes, who will be returning with us to Kenya in August, as she completes her fundraising and preparation for a nine-month term of service with us in Kenya.  She will be working in children's ministry.
  • Pray for Mike's trip to Ivory Coast and Guinea Bissau, and for our travel together to the US at the end of June.
  • Our son Kyle is working in Chicago while his fiance is in Michigan.  Would you remember them as they are preparing for their wedding in August!
  • Pray for several African church leaders who are still in the process of applying for a visa to come to the US for GC15.
Thanks for investing in the Kingdom of God and in us, with your prayers and support!
