Good times with old friends
This weekend we had some precious friends come visit us. Yesupadam and Monika, Bethany and Benjamin spent part of their yearly US visit with us. I am always so glad and grateful to get any time with them in their busy schedule--it is always refreshing to my soul. It is really so encouraging to be with believers from another culture and background and way of life and ministry. I find myself more able to think outside of my force of habit, and re-invigorated to live a life of complete obedience to the Lord. This year brought back my desire to be back in India full force. I don't know when we'll be able to afford the plane tickets, but I keep hoping that someday I'll be able to go back and participate in Love-n-Care's ministry in person, alongside of Vance. One day!
Please be praying for Yesupadam. It looks like he has shingles, and those of you know anything about this disease know that it is very painful. There is also not much available for treatment (that I know of). Please pray for God's healing power over his body, and strength and perseverance as he travels and speaks and stays in other people's homes for the next month.
