McKenzie Blog Back Online!

After more than six months of internet silence, our family blog is back online. We've undergone some serious transformations and transitions since our last entry, not the least of which, the arrival of Isabelle Sophia. Born at the Queen Mother's Hospital on 18 March at 10:15am, Isabelle is a healthy and happy baby. Gabrielle has welcomed her new little sister with joy and enthusiasm, as have her mother and I. You can find pictures of this glorious occasion at our online photo album, in the March set.

Another big change, in case you haven't heard, is that after serving with CRM/nieuCommunities for more than seven years (four here in Glasgow), we've made a transition to Christian Associates International, the organization we originally came here to partner with four years ago. We're excited to continue our ministry calling to Scotland with CAI, and we believe that from a gifting and philosophical standpoint, we are more capable to fully carry out the ministry that God has called us to do.

Jasheen and I are grateful for the invaluable learning and growth experiences we've had with CRM, and for the opportunity they have given us to serve the Lord with them in Scotland.

Our transition will be complete as of 31 July, and CRM will process our funds until 9 August. All gifts received thereafter will be returned. To continue supporting us in ministry and transition your current giving from CRM to CAI, or to begin partnering with us financially, please visit CAI's Giving page for instruction on how and where to begin sending your gifts. And of course, we are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have if you'd like to email them directly to us.

Jasheen and I are deeply grateful for the loving and faithful ministry that we receive from our generous donors and prayer warriors. One would have to be in a situation like ours to truly know how precious and valuable those gifts and prayers are that allow us to fulfill our ministry in this spiritually desperate place. We're so grateful for the friendships, care, and willingness of others to be involved in our lives and ministry.

Guys - glad you are back online. Weather is hot here and we are loving being with family again. Look forward to connecting with you when we return to Glasgow - life shouldn't be as crazy as leading up to our departure! We'll be praying for the transition. The Kurtykas
