The song that repeats "eight days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight" kept running through our heads. We just finished our 8-day road trip to Atlanta Georgia, Spartanburg South Carolina and Woodstock Georgia. Now we are back in the Ocala Florida area for a few days.
What can we say? The opportunity to serve at the Global Mpact Conference (yes they leave the "I" out intentionally) was a wonderful time. They were long days of getting up early, running hard much of the time and getting back to our host home late at night. But it was worth every moment. We spoke to groups of senior and median adults, youth, children and preschoolers. Yes we did do a 75-minute stint with 5 year olds and loved it and them.
We also had the opportunity to meet with the staff person responsible for mission partnerships at one of the Southern Baptist Convention's premier mission churches. It was a wonderful time of exploring possibilities and seeking God's plan for the relationship.
One evening we had a reunion with one of our former mission teams. It is always a blessing seeing how God continues to challenge and grow these young ladies. Passionate obedience would be the phrase we would use to describe them.
Now it is speaking/report time at our sending church on 16 October. By the way that is also the day of prayer for European peoples so please join us in praying for a great awakening.
John will be preaching Sunday morning and Lucy will be the speaker at the children's worship. We will answer questions at a fundraising dinner at noon and make our formal report to the church in the evening service.
Monday and Tuesday will be catch-up and reload days before hitting the road again to another Global Missions Conference. This time in Valdosta, Georgia.
When we are still, give us a call and we will do our best to find time to connect with you when we are close to where you live.
Our desire is to share life and what God is doing with as many as we can while we are here. Give us a call, email or Facebook messag
