One More Week!

July 6, 2015

Where in the world are the Linds???  We are around!  With just one week before we land in Kinshasa, we arrived late last evening at our final stop before the big move.  We are staying somewhere near Interlakken, Switzerland, with a magnificent view of the lake and the mountains.

This week is not just a relaxing, fun week, though it will be that as well, but this week we are dedicating as a spiritual retreat, to prepare us to begin our work in Congo.  We are here with three other families with whom we started learning French last August, and who are all traveling/moving to Congo next week.

But, not only the who and why are significant, but also the place.  We are staying in a 15th century monastery, currently run by brothers (think, monks, not family, though it is close!) who work in two locations: here, running this amazing retreat for missionaries and church groups, but also in Vanga, a little over an hour, by MAF plane of course, east of Kinshasa.  So, we are here preparing with our ministry partners across Congo, but also being served by people who love Congo.  There is a classic Congo painting hanging above our bed, just to make sure we remember what’s up!  Ha!

So, this week, please pray along with us as we prepare our hearts to move!  Thank you for all of your support to get up to this point, and by this time next week, we will already be on a plane!

    Kids, I just pray for a time of refreshment in Switzerland and then God’s speed to DRC. I know God is going to bless the time you spent in France learning the language. You saw how God has provided and how He will provide going back home to the land He has called you to. I will pray for safety, health, and that all your belongings will arrive promptly. Give the kids a kiss and a hug from Aunt Judy. I couldn’t be any prouder of you for listening to God’s voice. All glory, honor, and praise be to our Almighty King!
