I saw a recent post on Facebook by a friend who is also moving. She indicated that she was almost to the point in time where she wished that the house they were leaving, “might possibly…catch on fire!” I can truly relate. Connie and I are in the middle of going room to room with boxes labeled: 1) Give to the family, 2) Place in the garage sale, 3) Pack up carefully for long-term storage…those pictures and keepsakes that are near and dear, 4) Be considered for placing in one of our 4 suitcases going to Asia. I need to give her long back rubs and lots of love these days. We are very excited about being part of the Asia Pacific Team and the incredible ministry. The move just comes with the territory! Hang in there hon!
We are in the full swing of the speaking schedule! We have just completed speaking and sharing at the OR PAC NMI Convention. The OR PAC District is our original home sending district and it was so good to see friends and family there, and to worship at Medford First in the sanctuary where we knelt at the altar some 25 years ago and said “Yes, Lord”. We again reaffirmed our commitment to go where God leads as we listened to several missionaries from around the world, including some that we will be serving with on the Asia Pacific Region.
We knelt at the altar with other friends that we have grown to love as they step out in faith and head to the mission field as well. What a wonderful time spent sharing from the heart.
There were several youth and young adults there that spent some time with the group of missionaries asking questions and the time concluded with them going to the front and stating that they had felt a call to missions and a wonderful time of prayer.
We are excited to be starting a new chapter in our lives. Click on this link for the news!
