So the workshop is getting off to a start today. It has a been busy few days for us arranging the order of seminars and doing running around to get things ready.

Sorry no pictures yet...had some uploaded and tried to email, but after waiting 40 minutes, the connection reset, and I had no time to start over! Dag nabit. So, I rassled with the idea of waiting and trying again, but needed to deliver some materials to the facilitators. Alas. It will have to wait.

We're really excited to have Judy Dabler here, who taught all of us (Blair & myself, Dennis and the facilitators) the Peacemaker curriculum in an overview format for over three hours this morning. Bless her! She's only a little jet lagged too! The facilitators (10 Tanzanian Christians with a lot of spunk and heart) will be teaching the Biblical peacemaking curriculum in one session per day. It is a new part of the curriculum that will apply in the areas of personal discipleship, small group facilitating and teacing, HIV/AIDS (with stigma rduction and conflicts related to H/A) and in leadership development. It sounds confusing right now, but I'm looking at the schedule and it's going to be great.

Must go now, hope you friends are well. Keep it real. Peace.

We used the curriculum last year at the HELP program. Oh my goodness, it was really,really applicable to all the scuffles that arose during that summer. I think I need a refresher course.
Ange, it's wonderful to hear about all that's going on w/ you. What an adventure.
