Today the six members of the current Lui team from the Diocese of Missouri were commissioned and prayed over at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Webster Groves. It was a lovely service, and the team seems ready to go.

There was some last minute weighing of supplies to be sure they're within the kilogram limits imposed by Mission Aviation Fellowship, the group that will fly them from Kampala, Uganda, into Mundri, the nearest airstrip to Lui in South Sudan. They expect to connect with the English members of the team tomorrow in Kampala and with the Swedes on Tuesday (I think) in Lui. 

They will be giving greetings from all of us in the Diocese of Missouri to all our friends in Moruland. 

Lu karu ami, barazii amaro!

Thanks for the pictures Debbie. Woke up this morning and said my prayers for the missioners as they leave the United States for their treck to South Sudan.  They all look like their dressed for Missouri weather as they head to the airport. 

God's speed and be well!
