Board Approval!

We got a call this morning from Scott Myhre (Africa field director for World Harvest Mission, who, along with his wife, accompanied us on the most recent scouting trip to Burundi).  He told us that the World Harvest Board unanimously approved the proposal to open Burundi as a new field.  We are so excited to hear this news!

The next step for us will be to attend World Harvest's A&O (Assessment & Orientation) week at their headquarters outside Philadelphia in September.  At that time, they will decide whether to approve us as individual missionaries.

Thank you for your prayers.  God is continuing to open doors as we follow the path towards Burundi.

Awesome!Wonderful news - but we're not surprised. All of you are servants that any mission field would be blessed to have. We're two hours from Philadelphia so will see if we can connect with you then!
