In less than two weeks Camille, Canace, Chioma, Chris, Daniel, Hope, Jacob, Jen, Jerry, Jessica, Leah, Marie, Miria, Shelby, Wai and I (Kate) will be joining the Hispanola Internship team in New Haven for the Global Issues Institute organized by Tom Sharp. We will spend five days learning about current trends in missions, the history of the West in missions, the role of money in missions, the role of culture in Christianity, the power and privilege dynamics involved in cross-cultural work, and specifics to our work in Uganda with young mothers affected by war. We will also spend time building trust and getting to know each other on the team.
- Final efforts at fundraising - praise God for all that he has provided so far!
- Safe travel to New Haven for all 11 students, 5 staff, and our speakers (and the Hispanola team)
- God to be preparing our hearts, and those of the Ugandan staff and students, to learn together and serve well
