Huffstutler Brunch and Commissioning

Yesterday during the ABF time we had a sendoff brunch for the Huffstutlers. Thanks to Amy, Greta, and Nicole Sand, the tables were nicely decorated with an African theme. We are grateful the Lord allowed us the last couple of years to have the Huffs as a part of our ABF, and we are looking forward to many years of laboring together with them between here and Kenya!

Last night we had a Commissioning service for the Huffstutler family, where our church family covenanted together with the Huffstutlers to support and encourage them in their work in Kenya. Pastor Doran preached from Acts 13 on the relationship between the commissioning church and missionary. We ended the service with a “right hand of commitment,” whereby the church family expressed their individual greetings and farewells along with their commitment to pray for and support the Huffstutler family.

Dan, Angie, Karis, Faith and Makayla will leave Detroit Friday morning, pulling a uhaul trailer to WI for a week with their families. The following week’s end, they fly out of Chicago bound for Nairobi. They will spend a half-year of language and culture learning in Tanzania with Rob and Kara, then settle into their home and ministry in Nairobi. We bid them Godspeed!
