I looked at my bulletin board the other day. A little snippet of paper was there, and I thought it no longer needed to be. So I threw it away.
Then, the symbolism of that action hit me, so I had to whip out the camera.
You see, the organization we came to Kenya with no longer exists. They merged with another organization, lots of bad financial decisions were made, the administration did a poor job of communicating with its members, and they had to close their doors - all within a very short time.
Marti gives a well-written account of what happened in her blog. (See her Feb 15 entry.)
We are in the midst of joining Wycliffe Bible Translators, the organization we have been serving here. We were members from 1985-1998. Then we left to join Caleb Project. So it’s welcome back home time.
The transition has been deeply sad, annoying, angering - and exciting. We are excited about the possibilities for what is ahead.
