Nearing the end.. Posted about ago

Hey folks! We just wrapped up our last day of work here in Soran. Tomorrow we head to Erbil and then begin our journey back to the States. This update will have to be brief, but here's what we've been up to this week.- We were invited to visit the mayor's office.

Iraq Update #2 Posted about ago

On the eve of departure… Posted about ago

Team unity. Our team is off to a good start, but we’ll soon be mashed together in tight quarters and new surroundings with people we don’t know all that well yet. Please pray the God will protect our team from any seeds of division that would be sown in the coming days. A listening spirit. We expect this trip to be very relational, and we will shape our activities there to meet the nee...
