Dear Friends & Family,
How’s your summer going so far? Have you been able to escape out of the heat, visit family, relax with friends, re-charge & rest, fire up the grill, swim ‘til you’re pruney, and overdose on watermelon & popsicles?
We hope you’ve also had a chance to be a part of a summer mission trip whether as a missionary, a prayer warrior, or a financial supporter. We appreciate all of you that have been an integral part of our “Team Berryman Summer of Missions.” As you may know,
Team Berryman spent 25-days this summer in Africa on 3-different, consecutive, church planting campaigns. We’ve got so many stories of God’s redeeming love to share with you!
You can find a lot of these stories on Marina’s personal blog http://rockthedesert.typepad.com/. There’s a whole section devoted to Africa stories and a link that also takes you directly to Team Berryman’s “website.” Marina is updating the blog every couple of days with new stories from our 25 day adventure, so keep checking back…and please leave a comment or send an email in response to what you read – we love to hear feedback!!
One of our team members, Tricia, joined us for the entire 25-days. She is 25 yrs old, Chinese-American, a Texas Longhorn, school teacher and loves missions. She has a unique perspective and summed up each campaign in a power point. I’ve attached one of her power points to help convey our collective experiences.
Right now we are busy planning our next two church planting trips – Burundi (with medical component) in November ‘09 & Rwanda (with water well component) in January ’10 – we hope you’ll consider joining us – we are so excited about these trips and hope you’ll catch the vision and be a part of what God is doing in Africa sooner rather than later!!
Missionary to Burundi & Rwanda
