Update on the Massons

Jonathan and Kari recently posted this on their website,

Guess which fifth-year osteopathic student will be doing an internship while we're in Senegal next February?

I'm going to assume you all know the answer to this one. 🙂

Yesterday we moved one step closer to the dream. I say 'we' because it's our dream, but I'm not the one who actually did anything. Many moons ago Jonathan researched osteopaths in Dakar and decided he wanted to try to do an internship during our visit in order to get more experience, but also to glean as much information as possible.

You will want to click over and read the entire story. We are excited for them and will continue to participate in the journey Jesus has called them into.

Update on the Masson’s

Today on Jonathan and Kari's blog they went public with their dreams they shared with me in a recent interview. Kari writes,

Things we do know:
– Since leaving Senegal in 2004, we’ve wanted to go back.
– Jonathan is scheduled to finish his degree in 2010.
– Kari’s job is portable.
– We are planning to move to Senegal in 2011.

Typing that last one and seeing the words appear on the screen makes me feel absolutely crazy, yet sure.

How to participate with them in this dream,

What can you do?
– Keep us posted. My email address is linked to the right. We’d love to have your input, advice, recommendations, suggestions… For example, if you come across an article on starting a non-profit organization or learn of a company that ships luggage overseas inexpensively – let us know!

– Connect us. Do you know someone who is doing similar work? Do you know of an organization that provides health insurance for people living abroad? Get us connected with them, please.

– Join us. A big part of our dream is to bring in others to work with us. That could be spending 10 days teaching women a craft that they can sell to support their families, two weeks playing soccer with Talibes (child beggars) and treating their scabies infections, helping us find grants to fund community garden projects, or mailing a package of American foods for us to make ‘encouragement baskets’ for other Americans working in Senegal.

– Pray for us. We don’t know how to do any of this. We just know that right now, it’s all we want to do.

You should pop over and read between these lines.

Jesus invites people into his life and his way. He takes what is and points to the new way of the Kingdom of God.  Come see what this journey is all about!

One way to think about the mission of Jesus - He calls into question the way things are and points to the way things may be in the Kingdom of God.
