Well, we returned Monday afternoon from our trip up north after enjoying a wonderful Fall weekend (see the pics) in Delaware and Maryland. We've already told you on a previous post of our trip to DC to take in some of the art but wanted to give you a brief summary of our time at the EP Church of Newark's Mission's Conference.
We were one among six groups represented at the conference. three from the United States, the rest from a country in Southeast Asia (The country these missionaries were from is a Muslim country). We were honored to be amongst this group of fellow ministers and were encouraged quite a bit in our work by them as well as by the church. I wish I could tell you more about the work of our fellow missionaries in Southeast Asia but I want to minimize publication as much as possible for their safety. Suffice it to say we admire their faith in our Lord and pray for their continued impact.
Sarah and I had an opportunity to talk with the Adult Sunday School on Sunday morning. I shared "5 vignettes of arts and culture" from the Bible and Sarah shared about our ministry and her most recent project the "Perspective Cards". Thank you to all the members of EP who made us feel welcome, and to our fellow missionaries with whom we definitely felt a camaraderie regarding this mission God has placed on our hearts.
