We're sorry for the long absence to our blog. It has most certainly been a hectic month. But the fruits of our labours have been realized. Our house is finally going on the market. The realtor was in today, and we are very excited about listing our house tomorrow. It is looking very much like we will be able to sell the house for sufficient to pay off our mortgage and all of our other debts (student loans, car loan etc..) So we will be able to go to the mission field completely free of debts. Now we need to pray that it will sell prior to going to MDP. I'll post the MLS listing and some pictures, once it is available.
Tonight Liz and I are registering online for MDP. MDP stands for Misionary Development Program. It is to take place in Timber Bay, SASK from April 26th to June 20th. The training, as far as we understand is to include various forms of cross cultural training, mentorship,
Bible study and training, even some languane training. We will be leaving early to travel out west as we also are going to be involved in a week of training with NCEM at head office prior to MDP. I'll talk a bit more specifically about what exactly we'll be learning and doing in another post.
Thanks so much for your encouragement and prayers as we've been busily preparing to go. This promises to be a full and eventful year.
