Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I, Send me!” Isaiah 6:8
We are excited to introduce you to some new members of our HM team.
Andrew and Alecia, Philip (12), Susannah (11), Nathanael (9) and Esther (7) come to us seconded from PIONEERS. They have been serving in missions for over 13 years, 7 in Albania and 6 in Kosovo.
Andrew & Alecia T. moved to Greece in mid December 2008. They had quite an unusual welcome to this country as they found the truck driver they had hired to bring their household belongings from Kosovo had decided to unload all their possessions alongside of the National Road in Athens. It was something of a shock for them to find all their boxes, beds and wardrobes strewn out over about 50 meters of sidewalk along the busy road where cars were zooming by. After 7 hours of shuttling back and forth from the highway to the warehouse storage, and with the help of several team members with strong backs and younger “guards” posted to keep looters away, they finally secured all their goods. As they dropped into bed, long after midnight, they thought, if this is our first day in Athens, we’re in for an exciting time!
Cherith L. joined us early in January to serve as Johanthan’s personal assistant for six months. She is the granddaughter of one of our HM USA board members, and comes to us from the state of Texas. Cherith is following a call to Greece that came to her in a dream a couple of months ago when she heard God tell her to “go to Greece.” We are all thrilled to have Cherith here helping our president in his very busy day-to-day schedule.
Meggan D. first came to Greece in June of 2008 as part of a summer mission team. She felt right at home here from the start and after spending the summer with us and then traveling with our team to China for Operation Gideon 3, she returned to the States in order to raise support to come back and serve with HM again. Meggan arrived ready to go, mid January, and she will be helping co-coordinate Operation Joshua 2, our continuing project to present a New Testament to every home in mainland Greece.
