bahula-bulletin: November 2011 update

I t’s Take Our Kids to Work day! E has joined me in the ABWE Canada office today, but I couldn’t convince her to write this email. Instead she’s organizing my many books while I write. She was a little disappointed that she didn’t get to join me on a Caribbean trip. Having witnessed the ministry aspect of missions while we lived in Trinidad, she now is gaining exposure to the administrative aspect of missions.

We are gaining momentum with the Caribbean Theological Education Consortium. Dr. Dale Marshfield, ABWE’s Director of International Theological Education, and I facilitated curriculum design workshops in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jamaica, and Trinidad. We have scheduled one more in St. Lucia at the beginning of December. We are working towards a well-designed, unified, ministry-competencies based curriculum as a platform for cooperation. Throughout the workshops we have seen excitement building about the benefits that we can realize by working together. Please continue to pray that this effort will bear lasting fruit for theological education for the Caribbean.

Papa & Gramma Bahula continue to be a big help. Even when I’m not travelling, they visit once a week for a day or two to make sure that we are wearing clean clothes and eating our veggies. When I need to travel, they step in to  care for kids. Please remember to praise God for them!

And finally, here is a quick update on the Good Soil training that I did in preparation for the Forest Fall Fair. The people of Forest Baptist Church interacted with hundreds who attended the fair. Tonight (November 2), a group of seven will gather to begin a journey through the Story of Hope. Pray that they would understand and embrace the message.

In Christ,
Tim
