Hi guys!
I just want to wish you all the best of luck adjusting to Nigeria! It must be a rather difficult transition to go from mild weather to HOT weather. None the less, I would still try to enjoy myself with all the exciting things you could do there. Remember, these are the happiest days of your life, if you look at it the right way!
Love, Cameron

Dear Kim and Gary and girls!

We are thinking of you as you get settled in your new home. It is our prayer that you are all happy, well, less stressed and grateful that you have found this position working for God. We know you’ll do a great job and reap the benefits of being with the people of Nigeria. How wonderful that you were willing and able to pick up and go. God has blessed you and your family!
Best wishes as you become acquainted with your new surroundings!
You are in our prayers!


Sheila and Coll
