Good Afternoon! Sorry for the late announcements today.
Thanks to each of you who have given your testimonies this week. What a blessing! Tomorrow is our last day for this time of sharing with the staff.
A reminder that tomorrow at lunch is when you will sign the security documents. Please make sure you have viable photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) with you at lunch. Due to the document signing, lunch will be extended a bit and your afternoon session will begin at 1:45 instead of 1:30.
Looking ahead a bit....
Saturday late afternoon we will gather a nearby park for a picnic for supper. There is a splash park available for the children, so please feel free to bring swimming suits and towels for your kids. I will have beach towels available for you to use as well. Supper will be provided for you and a several of our IO staff (and a few US staff) will join in the fun. More details to come on Friday.
Sunday you will be visiting a local ethnic church with an IO staff member. Plan on lunch at a local restaurant and then a debrief after supper at the MEC later in the evening. Childcare will be provided for the debrief. More details to come on Friday.

Good Morning!!
Today is testimony day again! It is such a joy to hear how God is working in each of your lives!! Julianne is not feeling well today, so I am going to put her in on another day. Be praying for her to feel better soon.
There are books on the back table called Fitted Pieces. This book deals with MK education and raising MKs. Please feel free to take one or two or three! If the pile runs low, see Judy Severns for more books.
Ladies, tonight you will make your way over to Marcie's house for a light dessert and time with Women's Ministry Director, Beth Eckstein. Details for transportation will come a little later today.
Chandelle Body is in the office today so feel free to see her for DNA swabs and name badges.
