March prayer update

Things are continuing to hum along at the Discovery office. We have finished accepting this year's trip participants, and everyone has begun their trip preparations, to some extent. This summer we are planning to send four different Discovery teams out, as well as several individuals that will be going to various locations. Shevawn has yet to experience another MS episode, and has completed her first course of the drug treatment without any noticeable side effects; she begins her second course March 31st. We are very thankful that she is able to stay fully engaged in the Discovery office as we continue preparations for this year's trips; your prayers in that regard have been so appreciated! Here are some additional ways you can continue to pray for us:

* Team Leader training; we are thankful that Shevawn is managing to stay one step ahead of the leaders she is training. We are, however, running into some issues as we conduct our on-line training, some of which include unforeseen limitations of the site, as well as team leaders struggling to carve out the necessary time to meet their assignment deadlines in a timely manner. Part of that is due to the fact that they all already have a lot on their plate....and possibly part of it results from their not needing to go somewhere at a specific date for two whole days to cover the material in a training seminar. It seems to be hard for trainees to realize/figure out how to do their team leader training in this rather unstructured (time wise) system spread out over a couple of months. We would really be grateful for your continued prayers about the whole team leader training process, as it is so important to a well led Discovery team.

* Another praise; we now have one Ghanaian co-leader for the Ghana team, Frederick Amissah who is an alumni of the 2008 team. We are still considering options for the female co-leader for the team, and would appreciate your prayers about that.

* Pray for our co-workers and Ghanaian Discovery alumni as they continue to recruit Ghanaian participants and make other arrangements for the Ghana trip.

Thanks so much for taking the time to partner with us in prayer; you are such a blessing to us!
In His love;

John & Shevawn Ramsey
