In Africa, the ancestors guide life from their superior vantage point of
proximity to spiritual power and from their wealth of experiential
wisdom. Since Ed and Irene Weaver have been those ancestors for me and
my husband, Rod, being chosen to write part of Irene’s story is one of
the highest honors I have ever received.
Before leaving for
ministry in the West African country of Benin in 1987, Rod and I spent
weeks poring over everything Ed and Irene had ever written: books,
pamphlets and letters. As the two of us continually seek to align
ourselves with God’s mission in the world, we often look to the Weavers
and imitate their example as they followed Jesus.
