Ending on a high note
Well, it seems I've not updated in quite a while. Lord willing, we'll get back into the rythm of regular updates next week. We are very thankful for God's grace and goodness to us these three months. We have had a wonderful furlough.
God allowed the final service for the Andersons and us to be special services. The Andersons had the visitor from last Sunday return with two more visitors. I also met a man yesterday afternoon who came out to hear me speak last night. (He is a believer who attends another church in Des Moines.)
Our final service was at my Grandma's church here on the South Side of Des Moines. I enjoyed preaching all the services yesterday as we updated the church on what God is doing in our ministry in Scotland.
We have begun our return to Scotland as DHL just collected two 66 pounds boxes of stuff to ship back to Scotland. On Wednesday we will drive nearer Chicago to my Aunt's home. We will fly out on Thursday and get back early Friday morning. The Anderson will depart tomorrow from Scotland.
I've let them know of our appreciation for their ministry. Our church is very fond of this couple and we are very thankful for how God used them in our absence.
Thank you for your prayers for this furlough. There were so many things that we had to pray about and God gave us very clear answers. We praise God for His great goodness and your support on this journey.
One other answer to prayer: Kay Lee is very confident that God wants her at Ambassador Baptist College in Lattimore, NC. We are excited to see God's leading in her life. Lord willing she will begin there in the fall of next year.
