Hello everyone. We are Darrell & Laura Lee Bustin. We have been serving with CBM in Rwanda for almost 10 years.
One of the exciting things going on in Africa over the last few years has been a desire on the part of CBM’s partners to work together for encouragement and growth. In March, two of our partners – in Kenya and Rwanda – are going to invite the other partners to assess them as organizations in order to become more effective in their work for the Lord. Pray that this might be a positive process for everyone.
Right after those assessments happen, we are going to be returning to eastern Canada for a few months of home assignment. Please pray for us as we finish off our responsibilities here at the same time as we prepare for our time back in the Atlantic area. It can be challenging to be living with one foot in Africa and one foot in Canada.
Pray also for the newest member of our CBM Africa team. Laura Muema lives in Kenya and will be serving as the Program and SENT Coordinator. Remember her as she settles into the CBM family.
And finally, we must, at this time, pray for the desperate situation in Ukraine. In the context of hatred and violence, we ask God that peace, justice and compassion will prevail. And we pray for our Baptist brothers and sisters in the affected areas that they may be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Thank you for continuing to partner with us in prayer. And may God shine his light in and through you this week.
