After the Conference was concluded, we were met by NDI Board Member, Len VanWingerden and his wife Elaine.  Under their supervision we refocused our efforts “From preaching to plowing and planting!”  It was great to have several days to get “down and dirty” for the Lord Jesus and help develop further the Mfensi Conference Center.  The following pictures will give you a little idea of the fun we had “building and beautifying.”  And this Center would be a great place for your church, youth group or mission team to go for a week of “hands-on” ministry!  Just contact our office for more details…

Dear NDI Partner,

Patt and I have just returned from 3 diverse and intense weeks of travel and ministry in Africa—this time in Ghana, Ethiopia, Sudan and Kenya.  Each day was full of challenges and opportunities from sunrise to sunset—so much so that there is no way I can report on 3 weeks of ministry in 4 countries in one email or blog!  So this is “Part I” of a series that I will post on my personal blog for the next week or so (www.jlwilliams.net).  Each day will be a new entry from my “Mission Journal” from the trip—and primarily consist of pictures and captions.  I hope you will take a few moments to relive this trip with Patt and me since you made it possible through your prayers and partnership.

In His Love,

The theme of the Conference was “Fulfilling Your Ministry”.
