OMS Reunion Pics

I'm going to have to set aside more time to blog- because there are a lot of exciting things happening and you all are a part of it!  I've written a little about our OMS Family Reunion/ 110th Anniversary- now here are some pics!  Above is a picture of most of our summer interns- it has been so great to get to know them and I can't believe the first two will be leaving this week!  Thanks to those of you who have been praying over them and me as I've been leading them this summer.  We were lucky to get some time away with Bette Crouse, whose husband is OMS' former president!  She had great stories and wisdom to share with us!  Bette is on the far left, and next to her is my friend and co-worker Cat, who's funding to join the Mobilization department at HQ!

Bette and Dawn, my sweet friend and our director of Mobilization's wife.

There were a lot of people at the reunion... over 300 missionaries gathered from the US and around the world to worship, learn and deepen community together!

Paul, Cat and I were in a skit the first day to share about OMS History.

Kids at the reunion

Our interns were an awesome help with the kids program and skits!

Amanda, Megan and Sarah rocking the skits!

 Hillary is our Mobilization intern and Jody is serving in Hope61

Emily is serving in Communications

Brianna's family serves in Haiti, Tiffy's family at HQ

Jessica, Cat and I got to know Tania and Sergii during lunch one day.  Tania's from Australia and Sergii's from Ukraine, where they now serve with their three kids.  They're going through CROSS Training as a family right now, so be praying for their prep for the field.

Bruce Bennett, director of OMS South Africa, shared about the Into Africa Project and the thousands of churches being planted throughout the continent!

 Travis is our CFO and Patrick directs eXtreme Walk!
