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

The beginning of the rest of her life

Summer is over, and tomorrow morning Addie will begin the adventure that will last for the next 15 years (not quite the rest of her life :).  She is starting school!!!  Tomorrow morning we take her for her first day of "├ęcole maternelle", French preschool.  She will be in this school 4 days a week for the rest of the year as Wayne and I continue our studies in French.  We (or I) am a little nervous but very excited for what this will do for her language skills.  We feel that the opportunity for her to be with French kids is invaluable right now.  She can understand a fair bit of French from her time in the nursery last year, but she really needs to be pushed to use the French she knows, and playing with  kids her age will do just the trick (especially little girls who like to have tea parties and play pretend)!

Please be praying for her (and for me, and Wayne for that matter as he has to take care of both of us!) tomorrow.  Pray that her teacher would have understanding of Addie's situation, pray that she would not be nervous and pray that she would begin to make friends quickly.

P.S. We start school on Friday and we are so excited!!!  I already have my bag packed.  Yes, that does up us on the nerd scale.
