This week the LCMS staff has spent three very full days at the office giving a field orientation to our new missionaries. We welcome Rev. Jeff Kuddes, his wife Michele, and Molly Christensen, who have just arrived in Nairobi and will remain here for several months before moving on to their final destination in French-speaking Africa. We also welcome once again John and Jenn Wolf and their five children. The Wolfs first arrived in Nairobi this past summer but have only recently returned from their three months of intensive Swahili training in Tanzania. Special thanks goes to Shara Cunningham, who has coordinated all the information-packed sessions of the past three days.
Tomorrow we will all take a day of rest to celebrate the American Thanksgiving holiday. We thank God and ask His blessing upon the lives and work of these new workers!
