Yesterday, as Matthew told you, we were able to worship at a MTW church plant here in Odessa. During the beginning of the service the organ played "Come Thou Long Expected Jesus". I could just close my eyes and see Mrs. Connie playing that at First Pres. Oh, how I felt at home. God is so good to provide little blessings like that throughout our journey. Oh how wonderful to worship with other believers!! It makes me think about heaven and how all believers will be there from every tongue and tribe and nation. Sunday night we heard a sermon by John Piper. I am thankful for technology!!! What a blessing to hear a great sermon in English. God is so benevolent to send us these blessings.
Today, we have some much needed downtime. We are sad that we can not go to the internot to see Karina, but it does allow us to blog, sleep, exercise etc. Please continue to pray for our court date. We would love sooner than later, but we know that all is in God's sovereign hands. That gives us hope. Thank you for your comments, encouragement and prayers. They are invaluable to us while we are here. May the Lord bless you all for the blessing you have been to us on this journey. Please pray for our children. We miss them SO!!
In Christ Alone
