It’s hard to believe, but one month from today I’ll be traveling to the U.S. for interpretation assignment! I’ve got lots of great visits and events planned, and the schedule that seemed impossible to fill has been fleshing out quite nicely—thanks to gracious invitations from many of you!
I want to give you an overview of my plans and schedule to date so you know when I’ll be in your area, or when I have an opening to come if it’s not already scheduled. Several of these dates are still being defined, but this gives a sense of the plans in the works. Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or invitations!

Looking at all the places I will be in the next several months, I am filled with gratitude for the churches that have invited me, and the people I will meet—and also a bit overwhelmed by the number of hours I’ll be spending in planes and cars, and maybe trains!
There are a few things you can do if you’d like to support me during interpretation assignment.
- First, please pray for me! for good health and humor, for wisdom in my interactions, and for Good News about God’s presence and work in the world to speak loud and clear through my words and presence in these communities.
- If you or someone you know would like to invite me to visit, please let me know and we’ll work on making that happen.
- If you know people who might like to learn more about my ministry in any of the places I’ll be visiting, please spread the word or put us in touch.
- If you would like to defray travel costs for a small church or loan me a car or some frequent flyer miles, please let me know so we can find the best way to make that happen.
Thanks so much for your support and friendship!
