August 2013 Update

Dale & Karen Marshfield  (1977)

Thank you for your prayers. We are having a blessed summer so far.

South Africa
It began with a great training ministry in South Africa. Forty four faculty members gathered in the Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal for training in effective course design and delivery. After the ministry in the Cape, it was on to Durban for a week of special meetings at The Phoenix Fellowship. Then on to Johannesburg for meetings with the leaders of the South African Theological Seminary. The cherry on top was Jon's wedding (check out the video here) two days before we returned to the USA. It was a great time!!!

31 college professors participated in ITE training in Kalk Bay, RSA

Essential Mission Components (EMC)
Shortly after arriving back in the States, it was time for the EMC training program. Dale is the training team leader for this event. There was a record enrollment this year - about 100 participants with a training team of around 20. All ABWE Prefield missionaries are required to take this training, but this year's class included a significant number of veteran missionaries and some North American Pastors. You can see pictures of the event here.

Challenges Ahead

2013 has already been a year full of training opportunities. The fall will be no different. Dale will be training local faculty and pastors as well as expatriate missionaries in Jamaica, India and Turkey. For this to happen we still need $6000.00. Please pray about this need.
