Normally on Wednesdays, we get a glimpse into what’s been on Pastor Joe’s mind. This week, he’s in South Africa visiting our missionaries, the Kraybill family, and he took some time to share with us a little about what’s on his mind as well as giving us a glimpse into their trip so far:

Today I am sitting with our missionaries, Rod and Lori Kraybill, in South Africa.

It is a joy to be in their home which also houses the southern regional office of AIM, their mission agency. Rod and Lori
are making us feel very at home here with their generous hospitality. I’m here with three others from our church- Deb Boerman, Michael Matteoni and Beth Marshall, and we came with gifts for the Krabills given by some of their friends at Immanuel. It was a joy watching them unwrap the what was given.

Five years ago, God called Rod & Lori to a new place of service in the world —  Johannesburg, S. Africa — where they needed to find a new place to live, make new friends and establish a whole new network of relationships. This they did obediently as they responded to God’s movement in their lives.

We are here to see and experience their life and ministry and to encourage them any way we can.

Wish you were here!
