Aberdeen until Saturday

I am leaving tonight for Aberdeen for a strategic meeting with DAWN Europe. Back late Saturday night. We will have WiFi at the hotel so i should still be in touch.

I am also sick – terrible phlemmy chest but the doctor just gave me antibiotics and i should be OK. We have a guest from Germany here this week who also works as a doctor in London – Marcus – he told me that i need to rest and should not work so hard . .. all the time. He also told John Mulinde (Uganda) the exact same thing when he was in Uganda. I don’t think John (who I met 2 years ago ) listened to the Doc but I AM SURE THAT I WILL LISTEN, just as i have been listening these past 20 years.

BTW, speaking of Africa – I will be in Jo’burg (South Africa) early October with DAWN. Cool. But that means I will NOT be in Cartegena, Colombia that week.

    By the way I had a sighting of George Verwer here in the states. Actually, I had a couple phone calls from him.

  • thanks scott
    its only a really small group and Marc Van der Woude (Netherlands) is the youngest.
    J Paul is now working for Mars Hill Seminary in their development section so i dont see much of him any longer. I believe he is well.
    George is supposed to be retired but seems to keep up his rigorous travel schedule – i dont know him very well, but we had a swim together in a pool a few years ago in Malaysia.

  • Hi Andrew, I’d need your help. Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for San Francisco and I’d like to meet up for coffee with some people you used to work together with or you know we’d get along well. The local Marcs, Andreases 🙂 Thanks ahead & sorry for this platform.
    Have a fruitful, Spirit-led time with DAWN people and Lee. And of course GET BETTER!!!
