One of the most interesting and special parts of Chris's job at the seminary is meeting all the different students and their families. The Udes are from Nigeria. Rev. Ude graduated in May and he and his family are leaving next week, first to visit their family in the Netherlands and then home to Nigeria. We will miss their cheerful faces at church and around the seminary, but I am sure they are excited and eager to continue their work in Nigeria.
Luke took a liking to Rev. Ude and would've gone home with him.
Chris and the boys with Rev. and Mrs. Ude and two of their children, Rineke and Nick. Rineke is Mabel's special friend. :-)
We pray that God's guiding hand will be with them and that He will bless their labors in Nigeria.
