A Visit With The Doyles
Our sweet friends Sean, Kim, and Ethan Doyle visited our church last night to speak with a few of our small groups about their upcoming assignment with Team Missions to Zimbabwe, Africa.
David and I met Sean and Kim about 7 years ago (?) while we were both in seminary at Mid-America. After they left Memphis to continue Sean's seminary schooling at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, we weren't able to see them often but we kept in contact through letters and email. They are such sweet friends; The kind of friends you find yourself falling into conversation with after years apart as easily as if you talked every single day. We just love them and are so excited about the work that God has for them in Africa.
As I was listening to Sean speak about the horrible conditions in Zimbabwe and the desperation that the people live in there, I realized how little I know about Global conditions and what a blessed life I have. The Doyles will leave to serve as career missionaries in July. Currently, they are praying that their Visa will arrive safely so that they can actually get into the country.
God has done some amazing things as the Doyles have prepared for this move - things that only He can do. You can read more about who they are, what they will be doing in Zimbabwe, and how you can help them by checking out their website: www.seankimethan.com. I have a link for it listed on our blog.
