A Week in the Work Life

As Julie promised, here's the next post in the "A Week in the Work Life" blog series! 

One of the things I feel most called to do as the leader of Yebo Life is to pour into our team, interns, volunteers, and ministry partners. And for that reason, I love this photo that Fanus snagged of Charmaine (volunteer), Monique (team member), and me at the Yebo Life office.

That being said, here's what a week in the work life could look like for me...


9:00 / drop off Julie's passport to her immigration specialist in the City Centre

1:00 / Skype a young adult in the States who's interested in the Namesake Trip

2:00 / finalize and submit NPO application with ministry partner

3:00 / coffee with ministry partner to build relationship, debrief Team Detroit's trip, and chat about future ministry plans

As many of you know, Team Detroit left Cape Town two weeks ago, and Julie arrived back in the Mother City a few days later. Since then, I've been catching up on some much needed rest and time with my wife—AKA taking it slow. I also just started an online business course, so please pray for me as I journey through eight weeks of studies!
