We were in Kansas City, not to see the Royals, but to attend Christian Veterinary Missions annual conference, called “Shortcourse”. CVM put us up at the retreat center and fed us royally AND gave us the opportunity to share with various groups of vets who want to serve overseas, some day, in some capacity. We were blessed by the faithfully strong and warm leadership: Fred,
We reconnected with our friend, Denise, a vet, who is now married to an ag guy named Roy! Go figure! They are looking into going overseas, relatively soon, and we’re praying for the Lord’s direction in their lives (of course you can guess what we’re hoping for!!)
We made new friends, like Hillary and Mike, who also are hoping to serve in Africa, but are still in school. They really desire to work among unreached peoples, and we can certainly come up with an idea for them, but again, we want to pray for the Lord to lead them!We had a great time at the conference, interacting with many there as well as getting some healthy input into how we need to be focusing on our walk with God.
