This past weekend we met with David and Darlene Noden, the regional representatives for Africa Inland Mission. We had a great time talking with them about missions, and about the real, personal, and relational struggles that the mission field can create. Fits in nicely with the chapter on suffering I’m reading in John Piper’s Let the Nations Be Glad.
Anyhow, Lesa and I feel led to pursue a position with AIM, hopefully with the media team in Nairobi. Right now we’re praying about the best time to do the “candidate week” in New York, which is required to be accepted as a missionary candidate. Their next candidate week is in November, the one after that is January. We’d like to do it as soon as possible so we can start raising funds, with the hopes of arriving in Africa maybe next fall. November is a bad month for us, though, the busiest time of year for church musicians.
