Leaving this Thursday for Nigeria...to visit

Dear Friends,

I will be flying to Lagos, Nigeria on Thursday, the 18th of April to spend a week at West Africa Theological Seminary.

I will arrive on Friday afternoon Nigerian time (Friday morning in the U.S.). I would appreciate prayer as I take my first trans-Atlantic flight into a new experience!

The purpose of this trip is to give me a preview of my responsibilities once I arrive to work at WATS. I look forward to meeting the faculty and staff of the seminary, but especially the students!

I will try to post pictures on this blog so you can follow along with me on my journey.

By the way, I figured out how to correct the blog subscription problem (thanks, Wendell!!). You should be able to subscribe and have emails notify you of a new post. Scroll all the way down to the bottom and you will see how to subscribe.

As I close this post, I'd like to thank all of you who have committed to praying for me and who have sent donations for my support. I am humbled and honored. God bless you and return this blessing upon you many times over.

Many people have asked me how the support raising is coming along. It is very encouraging. I will give more details in the near future.

I know that many of you feel as Cheryl Cozette does when she said (on behalf of her husband and herself)"So,...we join you in your ministry." This encouraged me deeply!

And, I know Liz Mathew's comment will resonate with our desire to be of service in the Kingdom of God: "We are only here a little while, and then we are done." This inspired me deeply!

Thank you, my friends.

Stay tuned. I hope to be posting pictures of WATS by next week this time!

Blessings upon you,
Shelley
