Davis Missionary Journey: What Timing!

October 2004
"What's your 'show stoppers'?" asked our missions chairman at Hillcrest church of Christ, our overseeing congregation, as they worked to determine where God was calling them (and thus where they would be sending us next). "Plumbing and teammates" replied Sondra.

Research shows that plumbing exists in all 5 of the possible sites for a new mission point... still no teammates.

E-mail from Hillcrest: elders have decided on the Zambian Mumena project along the Congo and Angolan borders... still no teammates.

E-mail from Cedar Hill church of Christ: had read of the new team formation in Doyle Kee's "French World Missions" periodical; interested in supporting one or two families for a new church planting team mission.

March 2005
Don and Rita Boyd - Sondra's parents, our former teammates in Cape Town, and experienced Zambian missionaries - agree to join the team for a 5 year period... plumbing and teammates!

"Do you know when the mountain goats give birth?
Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn?
Do you count the months till they bear?
Do you know the time they give birth?"
Job 39:1-2 NIV

Thankful for God's timing,
Brian, Sondra, Noah, and Bryson
