Fall is slipping by. Before we know it, the holidays will be here. A few weeks ago our youngest, Jamie, turned 14. We are thankful for all the joy she brings to our home. We are also thankful that life has been fairly calm since the hurricane hit last month. We are trusting that the Lord will continue to keep things calm. We are praying for all those affected by the hurricanes, fires, and the terrible tragedy in Las Vegas. It has been a tough season in our nation and around the Caribbean.
For almost her entire staff career, Lynn has played a role in ensuring that high school staff, interns, and volunteers are adequately trained for the work they do in reaching and discipling students. In the beginning, when she was directly working with students, she trained one or two women at a time. As time passed and we began to have children, she began to oversee those doing the training. Over the years, she has also been involved in helping gather and create training curriculum.
For the past three years or so, Lynn has been on a “Training Guild” composed of staff working in a variety of settings. This Guild has overseen the creation of a whole new Core Training Program that will be utilized by full-time staff, interns, and volunteers on both high school and college campuses. In addition to the general Core Training, Lynn spent a great deal of time this past spring and summer designing and helping create a High School Supplement for this training. Finally, earlier this fall, the new Core Training and the High School Supplement were completed. It has been exciting to see the fruit of so many hours of work.
Please pray that this material will result in thousands more students having the opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Christ.
We are grateful for your partnership with us in this work!
Dave & Lynn
