The Reynens are currently transitioning from Kenya to West Africa, specifically to Togo. These next months of transition include three months of being stateside, language school in Belgium studying French in January, February, and March, and then officially moving to Togo in April. Mike serves as Area Director in Africa and his responsibilities take him around the continent, working with the missionary teams and in partnership with national churches. Vickie has served as ICCM Regional Coordinator for Africa but with their move to Togo, her role will shift to ICCM Regional Coordinator for West Africa. Her focus will be on Liberia, Nigeria and Togo. Their children reside in the states: Kyle and his wife Maddie, recently graduated from Spring Arbor University and live in Michigan; Kelly lives in Indiana; Kenzie and her husband, Jamie, also live in Indiana.Reproducible Bulletin Insert

I couldn’t help but smile as I approached the big blue container at church a few weeks ago. As I got closer, I could hear the humming of machines..sewing machines that is! And it was music to my ears—praise music! Earlier this year, we received a very generous gift to help fund setting up a […]
