December 2009 prayer letter

By the time you read this, we will probably be at SIM headquarters, doing our debriefing from our first term in Burkina Faso. It has been a bit of a crazy month as we packed up our whole house in Mahadaga, travelled around Europe, and are finally on the last stage of our journey home. We are looking forward to a little bit of down time over Christmas and the New Year. As long as our 8-month home assignment seemed to us, we are now starting to realize how quickly it will probably go by! There are so many of you we would love to see and the time will fly by just as the last couple of months have. Still, we thank the Lord for guiding us each step of the way and being with us through every part of our journey. We thank you, too, for coming along with us, whether in person or in spirit and in prayers. We're excited to show you pictures and tell you stories in person so that you can get an even fuller experience of this journey we have been on!
Dale, Florence, Caleb & Joel
"For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29)
