Our return to Kenya - 2009!!

We are very excited to return to Tenwek Hospital in Kenya on October 25th for a 3-year commitment for service. It will be a delight to once again share our observations and prayers with others on this blog, which has been dormant since our return from Kenya in February 2008. Even though it was a trying time to be in Kenya in 2008, it was immediately after our service at Tenwek Hospital that we recognized the Lord's calling us to serve there long term. The situation in Kenya then was very tense in 2008 with the post-election turmoil and we are very thankful that all is much more quiet at this time. Nevertheless, we give thanks for the assurance of the Lord's presence with us always during "Our Coming and Going."
We are completing preparation training for missionary service in Colorado and we want to share a key verse from yesterday's session:
"The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:8
May the Lord be with you on each step of your journey!
Thank you for sharing in our journey.
Steve & Alene Burgert
