Where Are Don & Becky?

(Hi everyone! Melissa Gross here. I’ve hijacked Don & Becky’s blog to give you a quick update on what they have been up to since their arrival back in Texas 10 days ago!)
Yes, you read that correctly - Don & Becky are back in the States. They've been here 10 days, but in true Cameron fashion they have not been still for very long. After the long trip from Nairobi to Dallas, they arrived on Tuesday evening, October 9th, and spent the next two days dealing with things like getting their cell phones turned on, "settling" in Rockwall, and fighting the inevitable results of jet lag. They also attended the Global Advance dinner.

Friday and Saturday, Becky attended the fall ladies' retreat at Faith Fellowship in Lucas, Texas. I taught on the topic of God's call to serve, and Becky shared how
God had called her and Don to full-time missions in Kenya and how He confirmed that calling. She also shared how God had equipped them over the past few years for full-time ministry. It was truly a blessing to be able to share time with her, and each of the ladies at the retreat was blessed by her testimonies.

On Sunday, Don & Becky were at our church to minister again, this time Don spoke at our morning worship service. He shared about the work they are doing in Kenya and how they provide physical and spiritual food in order to share the love of Christ. 

After we feasted on Mexican food for lunch, they headed out to pack once again. Monday morning, they were back at DFW on their way to Louisville, Kentucky, for the Kingsway Fellowship Convention. They actually spent several extra hours at the airport since their 6 am flight was cancelled and they had to wait until 12:30 to head out. They've spent the past four days at the convention in Kentucky and will arrive back in Dallas today!

So, now you can understand why you might not have seen or heard from Don & Becky just yet. Fortunately for us, they will be in the States until the end of the year, so there will be many opportunities to visit and reconnect!
