Mentoring the Younger

Posted on April 28th, 2011

This month has been such a blessing for Keith and me as we have had the pleasure to mentor and advise Daniel and Amber a young couple who will soon, Lord willing, be living in Zimbabwe and ministering to the people there.

Daniel is originally from Zimbabwe, but has been living in the US and China for the last 10 years. His wife, Amber, is from the US and Keith met them while at the World Mission Workshop in Faulkner, Alabama, three years ago.

When they approached us to ask if they could live with us for a month and glean any knowledge or wisdom we have, we were humbled and blessed. It is hard to believe that we are the old folk now! It seems only yesterday we were young!

But what a blessing it is to be the old folks of Botswana! People here respect gray hair and wrinkled faces. The other day I was in the computer shop making copies and I was wanting to charge it to our account. When I requested that, the clerk asked the name of the account. Not sure, I replied that my husband had set it up just the day before. The clerk then turned to her assistant to ask her. She replied, "You mean the white man with the white hair?" Keith got a good laugh out of that when I told him later!

I will project that the white man with the white hair and the white truck (not to mention the lovely, Godly wife and wonderful daughter) will be known throughout the region in very short order! I'm so happy that things are going well. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers without ceasing...
