Passing on the baton

I was a witness to an incredible sight yesterday.

On February first, 2006, Tim and Claire passed the leadership of the Centre to native leadership. The head of the Centre is now Opal. It was incredible. It's the goal of all (good) missionaries to work themselves out of a job, to train up local leaders who can take over and run ministries themselves. This is exactly what Tim and Claire have done, in Opal, in Max and in Wor. They are now leading the Centre with a group of foreigners around them.

We prayed both for Opal and for the new team. Tim and Claire said some amazing things. They also literally passed a baton that they had received on to Opal, and we had communion. It was incredible. In the 13 year history of the Centre, this is the first time it has been run by a Thai. Please pray for Opal and for the new lead team: Opal, Max, Wor, Rachel, Jim and Jennifer.

Ok, more later!
