Westover Visitors Bless the Nations

Genesis 12:3 – “and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed”

The US summer season is always a busy time for us, with interns, conferences, and traveling. This year we added a very special group of visitors: five dear friends from our sending church, Westover Hills in Austin. In addition to seeing our home and blessing our ministry, this group came to serve at the Angola-wide missionary retreat that takes place every year. The Westover team jumped in enthusiastically to bless not only us but the whole Angolan missionary community by teaching the children so the parents could enjoy a time of refreshment. As a mother of small children, sending our kids to such a well-crafted VBS program was one of the highlights of the retreat for me! The Westover team also really enjoyed hearing stories of God’s work from missionaries all over Angola.

David, Merry, Alan, Sandra, and Don were quite the troopers as we dragged them a thousand miles from our home in Huambo, down to the retreat, and then all the way to Namibia to enjoy a two-day safari before they flew out. Along the way they lavished encouragement on everyone around them, but no one received more outpouring of love than our family.  We cannot thank them enough for taking time out of their busy lives to bless us and countless others here in Angola.
