Glad Reunion Day!

Glad Reunion Day!

Thursday was one long day.  Emma and I were in route back to St. Louis for over 25 hours.  It was good that our last flight from Chicago to St. Louis was the shortest leg, because our excitement to get back to our family was boiling over.  They were as excited to see us, as we them.  We spent most of Friday relaxing and reconnecting, trying to get over jet lag.  We are both excited to share with the church what God did on our trip.  Emma will be giving a short report to the teens Sunday morning and I will give a report Sunday night.  I’m looking forward to being back in the service with the Grace family this Sunday.

I believe God really used the trip for our good and His glory.  I hope that the ministries of all six missionaries we visited will be renewed in their purpose and refreshed by our visit.  The Lord has certainly increased my heart for His work in that region.  My prayer life has been affected.  Our bonds have been strengthened.  I pray that the refrain so often seen in the book of Acts will ring true once again, only this time in Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, “as they went through the cities… the churches were strengthened in the faith and increased in number daily” Acts 16:4-5.
