As missionaries, one of the harder aspects is living far from family. Up until late February when John returned to the U.S., our Sunday Skypes involved us being on three different continents (North America, Africa, and Asia). Now we’re only on two continents (North America and Africa), but the distances are still challenging.
We’re grateful, though, that the five of us got to spend this past weekend together, our “reunion within the reunion” during a larger biennial Crofford family get-together in Maryland. Greg’s parents celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary and all six sons and most of their children (and grandkids and great-grandkids) were on-hand to celebrate – What a blessing!
Pray that we’ll finish our deputation strong. We have five or six engagements left as we tell the story of Africa Nazarene University, visit the dentist and eye doctor, and pack-up our things to meet the baggage weight requirements for the airline.
Pray for safe travel as we shortly journey back to Kenya.
Pray a blessing upon those who have been standing in the gap on some of the face-to-face duties at ANU while we’ve been doing itinerant missionary PR work in the U.S.
