For those of you who follow our blog you may have noticed that we've been having some technical problems the past few weeks which have prevented us from updating here as regularly as we try to do. We are hopeful that we are finally back on track now with our weekly updates!
While we were playing in Seattle, John was also working on this year’s trip to Africa, which continues to be full of surprises. In the space of just one week, he went from having 5 team participants, to 6….and then down to 4! Hopefully that will be the last of the participant fluctuations, both because there really needs to be at least 4 participants to make the trip viable financially and they have recently begun their weekly pre-orientation together. We appreciate your prayers for the Benin team; for John as he works on learning French and for the other team participants as they work on their pre-trip orientation and raise funds.
