So now this young woman stands before Jesus, dressed in white, giving glory to the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world. She stands there because the world was not worthy of her.
Let's not lower ourselves to the value of this world.

Aside from gaining a few pounds, we did accomplish a lot this furlough. Let me just name a few of them:
- We have networked with a number of churches, who will help us in South America
- We trained men and women to serve as strategic partners
- We spoke in about 30 different churches in 3 different states
- We watched our daughters move forward in life
- We enjoyed the company of our brothers, sisters, and mothers
That is just a small sampling of a long 9 months of time away from our ministries. Now we are more than rested and more than ready to get back into the swing of things.
We are headed to a country we have called "home" for almost 20 years. Yes, come August 29th we are homeward bound.
