. . . World Harvest's newest team, to go with our newest field of Burundi. Today the new team was approved as a group: John and Jessica Cropsey (ophthalmologist and teacher/administrator/mom) with children Elise, Micah, and baby-on-the-way; Eric and Rachel McLaughlin (family medicine and OB/GYN) with children Maggie and Ben; Jason and Heather Fader (general surgeon and teacher/mom) with children Anna and Abi; Alyssa Pfister (Internal Medicine/Pediatrics); and Carlan Wendler. That's 15 new family members in one day. Very sweet. We are incredibly thankful and blessed that God has intertwined our paths, for the world's good and God's glory.
They will now be in a couple of years of support raising and language study before arriving in Burundi to focus on medical care and education in 2013. Get to know them on their blog, and join us in praying for them: http://mccropders.blogspot.com/
