June 2009 Prayer Letter

I left Kenya on May 1st. I had a wonderful 11 days with my daughter - Jess, her husband - Jason, and my youngest grandchild - 10-month old Cadence! I arrived in my hometown, Omaha, on the 13th.

I’ve been feeling better than I was during the past few months in Kenya. I’m not 100% yet, but am so excited to be able to bike around on Omaha’s hills!

Somehow - this time around - my re-entry into the US culture has seemed more normal. I’m quite pleased about that.

I met with my newly-formed accountability group. I believe their increased and intentional involvement and investment in my life will reap many noticeable improvements.

On May 26th I go to Colorado. I’ll spend five days with a friend, likely hiking often in the magnificent Rocky Mountains.

I’ll also attend a 5-day missionary retreat. It focuses on:

  • Rest and relaxation
  • Debriefing, after living in a foreign land and ministering cross-culturally
  • Refocusing on ones missionary assignment and vision

As always, I appreciate your prayers for me! Please don’t stop while I’m away from Kenya.

And, perhaps it goes without saying, but I also need your continued financial support while I’m in the US.

Hey Deb...
Love all the pictures, especially the ones of your "walkabouts." Can't wait to get back. Now is not the time, but someday...! I can't even get back to Nebraska this year. Bummer! Be blessed and enjoy being back home.
Love from Shelbyville...
