Below is an excerpt from Ashley's (Kendra's Team Leader) update:
Greetings from North Africa!
It's a great joy to say that we have completed almost 6 weeks of our trip!
At this point we have overcome many personal challenges, and through praying for the people here our hearts are full of love for them!
With less than 2 weeks left here we are even more determined to give our everything and to see things begin to change. I can't share many specifics, but we have been meeting some of the same people on a weekly basis and through this consistency, we can tell they are on the verge of breakthrough. It's very exciting and motivational to the whole team to see that we are not simply visitors, but encouragers and life givers!...
Tomorrow morning we will go to visit the Red Sea for 3 days, just to take a little break and look back at our time, at our growth, at what God has done, and to set time aside to seek His will for our last week and a half here. It will be a great time of refreshment and encouragement, as well as time to process what we have experienced....
Please pray for our time of debrief on the beach, that we would be able focus and reflect, and that we would, as individuals, be able to determine our next steps after completing DTS.
Thank you for your prayers over us in the last 6 weeks; we couldn't have done or seen what we have without that support!
