Greetings from chilly (well, it’s all relative!) mornings, clear blue skies and sunny days.
I hope you are all enjoying the weather wherever you are and whatever it is. We certainly are!
So, Mum and Dad Hewer have been here in Nigeria for 3 weeks now. They are staying on site at the Nigeria Bible Translation Trust (NBTT) and have been working with 3 different language translation teams between the two of them. We have enjoyed having them here on the weekends and sharing a bit of our life with them.
The first stages of the elections in Nigeria are due to happen this coming week. There is some concern that this could spark unrest in Jos as our State is considered to be in a key strategic position. Please pray for God’s will to be done in who is elected and for his peace that passes all understanding to reign.
Tim is heading to Nairobi on Sunday with the Nigeria Group Finance Manager Paul. They will be spending time with the finance team there to help them both develop their understanding of how the finance systems work so that they can co-ordinate better with the team in Nairobi. Paul has never left Nigeria before so Tim is looking forward to introducing him to a new country!
Short one today.
Please do take some time if you can, to pray for us as follows:
Good times with Mum and Dad
Opportunity for Tim and Paul to learn more about the Africa Area finance systems
Peaceful and God-directed elections
Safe travel for Tim and Paul to Nairobi
Beneficial time for them spent with the Finance team that will enable them both to do their jobs better
