Extending Families- a gift to us all

Recently I saw the following pictures on my friend Janet’s Facebook page and it reminded me again about our extended family.

One way our family has extended is the adding of numerous missionary colleagues who have become Aunts and Uncles to our children.  They help them out when they can (and especially when we are an ocean away).  In the same way, we have gained “children” we dearly love and help out when we can.

We are looking for you (or someone you know) to join our extended family.  We need hostel parents beginning in late July 2017 so that we can reopen the UBAC hostel.  We have students who need parents – at least hostel parents – so they can attend school when their families live away from school.  In return, you will join our expanding family.  We sure would love to have you!

ALSO – would you take time to pray this weekend for the upcoming student council retreat that Jeff is helping to lead?   Pray that this retreat would help them to organize for the year and bond as a group.  This year’s student council has students from a wide background on it.
