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

Why candle light is no longer romantic....

Because it means that the power is out...again! One of the most difficult things for me since moving into our house has been the power outages. Every night around 8 pm, the power goes out until around midnight, and then it is usually off and on through the night. Wayne wants to know why I'm whining when he is giving me whole candle lit evenings, not just a candle lit dinner :) Thankfully, this weekend we got a system installed in our house that involves 2 big car batteries and an inverter. The way it works (I think) is that when the power is on, the batteries charge, and then as soon as the power goes off, certain things in our house (ie. fans!) switch over automatically to the batteries. We are sooooo thankful to have this system installed as we can now have fans running all night (!!!!!) and have some light at night, as well has have our internet on and use our laptops when the power is out. Thank goodness for electricians who understand how the magic works!

We are so grateful you're finally getting some relief. You've been in our prayers and will continue to pray as you settle in and continue your ministry. Love you!

Oh Hil! We should chat soon- reading your blog is like reading my heart the first year I had over here! I think I even wrote on my blog about candlelit dinner not being romantic...at all! The difference is that our power shuts off in the winter mostly (sporadic in the summer) and there's no predicting when it would go off. So, you have the cake or whatever in the oven, tough luck it's ruined...not to mention that you used your valuable vanilla extract from America to make it...Oh man! I remember laying on the floor next to wood stove in a fetal position- feeling so cold for weeks and week- and just wanting to go home where it was warmer and there was power!

You are in my heart! I will pray for you to make it through the summer if you will pray I make it through the winter! ;-)
