Who Are We

Wayne, Hilary & Adelaide Denny. Preparing to Serve in Leadership Training in Senegal, Africa. God has called us to take advantage of a unique window of religious freedom in Muslim Senegal by equipping church leaders who have a heart for reaching their country and the Muslim world.

We should be jealous. . . for the honour of His name – troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed. And all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due to it.” John Stott

Thanks MTI Staff!

We are so thankful for the staff at MTI who made our stay there great! We are especially thankful for the children's staff who made Addie's time there wonderful. She had a rough start, but by the end of the 5 weeks, I wasn't sure we would be able to get her to leave!

Gay and her grandson Mekhi were there all 5 weeks. Addie absolutely loved Gay who was with the babies the whole time. Many times Addie would end up with the babies too! Mekhi became good buddies with Addie too. I think he liked her because she taught him the phrase "I have stinky feet!"
Thanks Gay!

Jenessa was Addie's teacher the last 3 weeks. Addie was so excited to go down to her class everyday. They did some great crafts too (I'm not sure I'm ready to let Addie finger paint like Jenessa did!)
Thanks Jenessa.

Danielle was Addie's teacher the first two weeks. I think she had the toughest job! But she got Addie to love being in the nursery. She taught Addie some great new phrases ("that was awesome!) and a new song (something about two tigers running fast...)
Thanks Danielle!

The most amazing part is that they got 5 two and three year olds to take naps together in the same room every day! Addie loved her special cot. We actually had to go down one night and show her that the room was locked because she didn't want to sleep in her bed in our room.

Thanks again MTI staff!
