We began our final day in Africa reflecting on the mission with a personal devotional called, “What's in a name?” This was based on 2 Timothy 2:19 and the fact that our heavenly Father knows our name.
“You have learned many names on this trip,” I told our team, and we mentioned several of them from our time in Tanzania and several others from Malawi. “May each of them follow you home.”
The team was challenged: “What are you going to do with this name ... with this person?”
We discussed the many faces of Mission: Kilimanjaro 2011 and the incredible work God has been doing in and through our Climbing For Christ team.
We then flew from Lilongwe, Malawi to Nairobi, Kenya, and after a long layover had an overnight flight scheduled to Amsterdam before returning to the States on Wednesday afternoon.
“...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 1:6
