We just got back from a great week in Grand Popo, Benin where we joined many of our colleagues from West Africa. Heidi and I attended meetings and learned a lot of great lessons from our more experienced peers. While we were discussing serious topics such as persecution, theological issues, and human relief efforts, our kids were having a blast.
A wonderful team of volunteers from the US came out and did Vacation Bible School with them. They also got plenty of pool & beach time. It was great to have them come back to the hotel room every night exhausted!
