Please Pray - Mission Debriefing

Dear friends and family,

Thank you for your continued prayer for us through our transition to a new ministry work.

We just finished a week at Mission Training International’s (MTI) Debriefing and Renewal program, and it proved to be an important step as we adapt (our kids) and re-adapt (Lindsay and me) to culture and life Stateside. Lindsay and I received solid counsel, prayer, and encouragement. Our kids got to interact with other kids who are going through similar cross-cultural transitions in a program designed especially for their ages. And as a family, we gained some common vocabulary that will help us to talk and navigate the many changes that we’ll encounter in the coming months.

In other news, I want to share with you that we have decided where we will be living in the US: Chicago. Because Orchard Group has work happening in many different cities, we were presented with several really good options. After visiting some places and praying a lot, we decided that Chicago is the best option for our family and for the work with the Orchard Institute.

Please continue to pray for us over the coming weeks. We’ve got some more activity and travel, and we hope to find a home in Chicago so that we can get settled in before our work officially begins with Orchard Group on June 1st.

Thank you for your prayer and support!

Un abrazo, —Luke
