In The Mission Field

As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to be obedient. We count it a joy that we are able to support these fine ministries in their mission as we continue to serve here in our community.

Acts 13:47 (ESV) For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'”

Mark 16:15 (ESV)  And (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”

From Norm and Audrey Henderson

We are on our second career (at least!), in Angola, Africa working with CEML, a hospital in the southern city of Lubango. Norm provides IT and admin/logistics support and trains others, Audrey applies her community nursing background and mentors CEML’s nurses. Together they run Alpha courses and serve the local church. Along the way we spent most of 2010 in Porto, Portugal to learn Angola’s official language, Portuguese. Our blog title is a favorite saying of Norm’s late mother, who had an all too exciting life as a missionary in Angola in the 1940’s and 1950’s and later in Zambia in the 1960’s.
