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

We're at 100%!

As of last night, we are now at 100% of both our monthly and one-time budget including verbal commitments! Please pray that our verbal commitments will come in this week. Also, pray a prayer of thanksgiving to the God from whom all blessings flow.

This past year, God has shown us through numerous individuals that the Christian's hope does not fluctuate with the economy. Praise God for the incredible generosity that we have been able to experience.

Goodbyes Part 2

The goodbyes continued this week. First of all, we had to say goodbye to Dan and Cyndi. They have been gracious enough to let us live with them for the year and words cannot describe how grateful we are to them for this. You guys are the best! And I'm not sure what Addie will do when she just has to live with her mom and dad, I think she might get a little bored! Thanks for being such wonderful friends and for loving Addie so much too. We will miss you guys!

And of course, we can't forget about Duke and Daisy!

We also said farewell to Jeff and Jennifer. They were my youth leaders at Plano Bible Chapel and are a wonderful couple. I don't know if we would be where we are without them! They hosted many presentations for us this year and were such an encouragement and blessing. Thank you guys for all you have done for us, it means more than you will ever know.

NC Farewell and support update

We're on our way to NC, our last trip there for 4 years. Hard to believe. This Saturday night, we're having a farewell party at Reidsville Bible Chapel at 7 pm. If you can make it, we'd love to see you. Call or email with any questions.

Also, with our support, we're still at 95%. Keep praying for the remainder to come in. We only have 2 more weeks left.

Almost there (support update)

We're now at 100% of our one-time support and 95% of our monthly support. Last week we reached 100% of our one-time support and have begun taking the additional one-time gifts and spreading them out over our first term and treating them as monthly support.

We only need $400/month to be at 100% and we still need this to come in before we can go.

Please pray that this remaining support will come in for us. It's exciting to think that we're almost ready to go.

Goodbyes #1

It has begun. The bittersweet task of saying goodbye. We are excited to be going to France in less than a month, but we are sad to leave so many friends and family stateside. For thanksgiving, we spent the week with my family in Iowa and got to spend some good time with family and friends.

The Chavez's are great friends of ours. Israel was Wayne's boss at Emmaus and they are also our loyal Catan friends! Hannah, Julia and Autumn have been wonderful to Addie.

This was the last visit we will have for a while with my sister Jenna and her family. We will miss you guys!

Addie gave her cousins lots of love!

Sorry I don't have a picture of Ben! We'll miss you too though!
