I can remember well the many Easter Sunrise Services that we attended as youth with dad, sometimes playing our musical instruments in weather where we had to keep the mouth pieces for our horns in our pockets (between songs) so that they wouldn’t freeze to our lips. This morning at Lizard Butte, the “Son” rose on a morning that will be burned into our minds. All of the kids were there, the Landreth families, the Aebischer families, the Smith and Sigman Families, Linda Barrows, and Amber and her family and many others. The wind was calm, temperature warm (relatively speaking
g), and the Spirit was definitely there. After the service, we gathered together as a united family on the hill and prayed for God’s guidance and protection over the generations of our families and for safety for this next chapter in our lives and mission. God has been so good to us, providing protection across miles of oceans and jungles, through wars and disease, and now once again, as we accept this new assignment to Asia.
Nothing is more precious than moments spent with family and as we said our temporary goodbyes at the airport, I was so blessed to have the kids and Connie there. Thank you to all of you who have committed to partner with us in prayer. We will do our best to keep this story alive for you in the days ahead so that together, through our hands and feet and your prayers and encouragement, we can make an impact for Christ in the world of the Asia Pacific Region.
Yours and His from somewhere over the Northwest at 24,000 feet.
