In the month of August, my sister-in-law will have a baby, Joel’s grandma will turn 90, and my father will get married. And we have the blessing of being in the United States for all of these events. We also have the honor of sharing the stories of our Zambian colleagues and friends with churches, mission networks, and individuals in Michigan and in Louisville, Kentucky. It is a full month, with six speaking engagements, in addition to the very huge family events. But I cannot believe how blessed we are to be able to be here for all this, to share in the joy and the beauty of family life here in the US, and to testify to the joy and beauty of our Zambian friends.
As the month progresses, I am sure I will have a lot to share, as our niece is born, as my father is married, as Grandma VP celebrates 90 years of life. But I also would love to see those of you who are in Michigan, as we speak about our ministry in Zambia, and continue on this journey together. When we walk together, beautiful things happen, and I am excited to be walking in the United States today, to invite more and more people to join us on this journey, connecting God’s children across the globe.
Below is our US speaking schedule. Some of these events have already occurred, but if you are in the area, please join us for one of the upcoming activities. We would love to see you! If you can’t join us, and would like to connect while we are in the US, please feel free to be in touch this month, and we would be very happy to talk with you.
