As most of you know, the internet situation in Gweru has been a bit spotty for us thus far. We are currently in the process of negotiating with TelOne (broadband company) about getting service out to the campus of BTSZ. In the meantime, I am left to dodgy smartphone service and finding a seat at internet cafes in town which offer Wi-Fi for $1/hr.
It just so happens, however, that today I am in one of these cafes and was able to check Twitter at more than 1kb per second. In doing so, I saw that our sending church Redemption Hill has exceeded its Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goal of $15,000! I am blown away by the generosity of this faith family. Every year since launch we have exceeded our goals in both national and international missions. Please keep up the good work as I can tell you with confidence that your “sent out ones” at Hope Church Utah, as well as those of us in North Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe feel the impact of your giving every single day.
As we embark on yet another week of language learning, cross-cultural engagement, strategizing for the future of BTSZ, and well, just living life, we just wanted to say THANK YOU for your generosity to all those who gave to the LMCO this year!
