Progress in the Midst of Crisis

by: Dennis & Nancy Palmer

We are still here at Mbingo.  With the lockdown from the COVID-19 virus, we canceled the visits to many of our supporting churches and the conferences that we were scheduled to attend this summer.  We are mostly isolating ourselves in the house.  I no longer go to the wards but attend a few meetings at the hospital.

Gewɗum ɗon

by: Jeff & Sonya Kilmartin

Gewɗum ɗon. This little phrase literally means something like “sadness is” – the sadness being the emotion of missing someone you love.
