From OUR MISSION TEAM in AFRICA
Report from Fr David:
We have completed 5 days of teaching at the Diocese’s School. Terri and Jo have been teaching the lay catechists with Rev. Jackie and Apollo (from Portugal), while Bishop Jerry, Bishop Sospeter, Fr. Don, Cathy and I have been teaching the class for pastors. The classes have been going very well the students are appreciative and are quick learners. Yesterday (Friday) the catechists class was finished and the students were all presented a certificate of completion signed by Bishop Sospeter. Terri and Jo led their team today to teach children at one of the local parishes, with a guest appearance of Pharaoh (Fr. Don). Bishop Jerry and I continued the pastor’s class, teaching on the Creed. Tomorrow we will all be going to the Cathedral for the early service, then Fr. Don and I will be preaching a different parishes, while Bishop Jerry preaches at the Cathedral. We have received much appreciation from everyone here. The accommodations at the local hotel have been very nice. They go out of their way to help us. Tonight we took over the hotel conference room to assemble Sunday School materials for tomorrow.
God bless everyone back in Tampa, we miss you.

Prayer for a new Parish Home
God our Father,
in all the churches scattered throughout the world you show forth the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. Through the Gospel and the Eucharist, you bring your people together in the Holy Spirit and guide us in your love. Provide for your faithful servants at the Church of the Resurrection a new parish home where we can be a sign of your love for all people and show forth the living presence of Christ in the world. Amen.
