All of our bags are packed and waiting by the door. Little children's backpacks have been searched for liquid items that may have been missed! Our goodbyes are about to be said!
This year, we will be traveling with 10,000 tracts in various languages ... mostly English, German and Italian. We will also print out several thousand tracts while we are there in Italy. Twenty Bibles were given to us and we have included those with the 100 that we already had. How wonderful that there are others who want to share and that they want us to be the feet that take them! We are anticipating more people this time because of the recent news of the P*pe.
Please pray for us as we travel. Please pray for our strength, for our health and for our spirits. How easily we can walk in the flesh when our spirits and attitudes are not right! How easily our good attitudes diminish when we are tired. Your prayers are very much appreciated.
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
