New Staff

Picture this...well, I guess you don't have to because it's right here. I'm listening to my 80's mix CD, wearing aviator sun glasses, and driving 4 munchkins (our boys and two girls that belong to some new staff) back to our home. It's The Dad Life in full effect. Not to mention that the kids were all rocking out to Kenny Loggins' "Highway to the Danger Zone" made famous in the opening scene of Top Gun. Just call me Maverick Dad.

We've really enjoyed getting to know the new staff. It's been a busy few days as they fight jet lag, go through basic Vienna Orientation, and avoid freaking out about all the new things they'll be dealing with in their lives. Here are a few pics.

The Overbys


The Johnstones

We had some more staff arrive yesterday, but I haven't gotten their pictures yet. Please join with us in praying for these folks that their transition would be smooth and that God would use them in powerful ways to minister to students here. Pray also that we would have servant's hearts and seek to give of ourselves and our time to help them adjust to being here.
