Travel Update & Prayer Request

August 15th was a long time ago in our collective memories.  We began that day very early in the darkness as we tucked ourselves into the car for what we presumed would be a trip we would never forget.  That it has been.  Of course, of all the surprises which sprang up in our path, the biggest was the delay in our return back to the place we like to call home.

With joy and perhaps some apprehension we are just a short time from being joined by co-workers in a small caravan to accompany each other toward our respective homes and through the war zone which has intensified in violence and ferocity in the past few weeks and months.  As with anything in this world, we have no real guarantees of physical safety, even in the service of our Lord and King.  However, we do trust in His goodness and purpose for our lives whatever that may mean in these temporal days He has granted us on this earth.

We sure would appreciate your prayers for us as we travel and that God willing we would be able to return home on Saturday.  While we and our mission believe that the risk is relatively reasonable, we all know that only God knows exactly what the risks really are and that no matter what, there are no real risks in trusting Him to order our steps as we follow Him.

Thank-you and may God be glorified in all of our lives until that Day.
