Last night we had dinner with our dear friends from Zim. That's Zimbabwe for the uninitiated.
Craig and Mell and their two wonderful boys live and work in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, their homeland. Craig is a lecturer at a theological college. Mell keeps herself incredibly busy providing for her family and participating in many different ministries. We only see them about once every three years when they come to the States to visit supporters.
It was a real joy last night to hear about the Lord's faithfulness as they persevere in a land ruled by corruption and filled with AIDS and dire poverty. We feel privileged to be a tiny tiny part of their work and to serve so great a God alongside them.
And, all our kids had a great time raising a ruckus together!
