As of last week, all of the McCropders have landed back in the USA. In fact, this week, the McCropder adults have all convened in Philadelphia.
We are happily together here for a week of Assessment & Orientation with World Harvest Mission. As we meet the staff and learn more about the organization, we are continually impressed! It is great to explore with World Harvest the future possibilities in Burundi. And we really enjoy learning from the staff-members as they talk with us about their experiences in missions.
It should also be noted that World Harvest's hospitality has been fantastic, and the Philly Cheese Steak Pizza was a big hit today at lunch.
Tomorrow each person has four hour-long interviews, and then on Wednesday we hope to receive formal acceptance as World Harvest missionaries. We appreciate your prayers this week as some important discussions and decisions are made.
