I have been through this many times. Goodbyes are never easy...especially when you're saying goodbye to someone or something that you love. Even though I am not personally there, I know this is hard on Dave.
Dave will be flying all day Thursday to come back home. My heart rejoices to see him...the children are excited...but I know his heart is torn between two loves. God is good. We will continue to pray for the Harvest and for the seeds that were planted.
And we'll be faithful to plant more seeds.....
May God bless you for your faithful prayers.
... 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.
