Καλό μήνα (“ka-lo mee-na” or good month)! This will be the common greeting today in Greece, as it is on the first of every month. So, in this spirit, have a great month! We sure hope to. This month our home assignment work moves into full speed, meeting with supporters, churches, and potential ministry partners. We’ll be in the Springfield area (Illinois) for the entire month. Here are a few of the highlights:
* I’ll get an opportunity to preach at Chatham Christian Church next Sunday (February 7). If you’re in the area, come by at 9:15am.
* On Sunday, February 14th, we’ll be giving a short update about our ministry at Sugar Creek United Methodist Church. The whole family will be there for the 8:15am service, and Brett will stick around for the rest of the morning.
* On Sunday, February 21st, we’ll visit the 10:45am service at Rochester Christian Church; we’re looking forward to chatting with the missions committee afterward. If you’re there, come say hi!
* In addition to these church visits, we have a number of one-on-one and small group meetings. We’re really excited to share about what God is doing in the lives of refugees in Athens. If you’re interested in getting together, just let us know (via firstname.lastname@example.org)… because we’d love to (and we still have plenty of open meeting time)!
