Year of the Visitor. Part Deux

Here I mentioned how we're really looking forward to all the visitors we expect to have this year.

We just said farewell to visitor number two, of year number two, in Scotland. His name is Vince and he stayed with us for a couple of nights.

I'll have to give you a little background before I tell you who he is. We are here as a result of a great God and the extremely loving and incredibly generous friends and family we have, who have committed to support us financially, prayerfully, emotionally, and mentally during our time here. We wouldn't be able to be here without the support we receive from all of you who have played a vital role in our survival and ability to thrive. Thank you. A million times over, thank you.

So anyway, we work through an organization called Mission to the World. MTW helps to coordinate where in the world workers go, who they work with, etc. Usually, a country will have a mission team made up of several MTW workers that includes a team leader. In Scotland there hasn't been a team leader for the past year, until about a month ago. There are several difficulties that have come about for us as a result of not having a team leader, but I won't bore you with anymore of those details.

So the new team leader is a guy named Vince Wood. He and his family are in the process of raising funds to be able to move to Scotland by January of 2010. The current plan is we will be back in Richmond by the time they get here, but it's great to have his support for the rest of the time we're here.

It was super encouraging to meet him, hear about his vision for Scotland, and share our work with him.
