Opening a new chapter of life can be stimulating and intimidating. For Connie and me it’s been both as we adjust to this new reality of being permanent residents in the USA after 26 years in East Africa.

Gratitude for our trip

Your prayers made a difference in ways we cannot know. May we return to Indiana with closer relationships to Christ, and...
