The Latest News from Sara and Phil

Latest Article: Oct.  2017

Greetings from Tanzania! We’re adjusting to life as a family of three here on the field as Lydia starts her college career in the U.S. Another, more joyful adjustment is getting comfortable with our new titles of Bibi and Babu—Grandma and Grandpa in Swahili—as our daughter Ivy and her husband Daniel welcomed their first child, Luna Kathleen, in September. We are so thrilled!
