Update from MAF Missionaries
Dear friends at St. Michael's,
We send you warm greetings from Idaho! We have been back in the U.S. for about 7 months after serving 5 years in Haiti and are getting back into the swing of Stateside living. We feel blessed to be near family and not far from MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) headquarters, where Tim works in the finance department.
Tim has a number of projects on his plate. He jokes (well, half jokes!) that he has enough to keep him busy for at least 5 years! While his projects are varied (e.g., this year the biggest is helping to design and introduce and train staff in new budgeting software for the whole organization), his overarching goal is teaching and training our field and HQ staff to do their budgets and finances more efficiently and effectively, to free up more time for the rest of MAF's ministry. A lofty goal, indeed, but one Tim and the new VP of Finance at MAF are committed to--being good stewards of the resources entrusted to them. To this end, Tim is traveling to South Africa this month to train our Africa program managers as they meet for an annual conference. He has been asked to consider other international trips this year. Please pray as he prioritizes projects and tries to balance training trips overseas with keeping projects moving forward at HQ.
Liz and the boys have been homeschooling this year; please pray for a strong finish for the school year and wisdom as we evaluate schooling options for next year. J- needs help with a learning disability and we think B- (the sole extrovert in the family) could benefit from more social time with kids his age.
Thank you for your continued support of our ministry with MAF!
We hope to visit with you and catch up in person during a trip east this summer!
