1. Our plans are to return to the US at the end of March and formalize our transition to SIM before returning to Kijabe, God willing, at the end of August 2013. Please pray for God to provide a couple of pediatric surgeons in the short term to help cover during our home assignment in 2013 and for a long term pediatric surgeon to join us in the work here in Kijabe.
2. Pray for Frehun Ayele and Dan Poenaru as they move to Ethiopia to expand BethanyKids' pediatric surgical work in Addis.
3. Pray for Aiah Lebbie's paperwork to clear in a timely manner so he can go to South Africa to complete his final year of training.
4. Pray for Erik's trip to South Africa in September. He will be meeting with various pediatric surgeons there in hopes of establishing an ongoing partnership for the training program.
