a furlough is a time to come back to report to supporting churches,
gather more support,
reconnect with friends and family,
and gain refreshment to have strength to go back to the "front lines".
Here are a few pictures of some things I have been able to do so far-
Teaching at a Ladies' Fellowship & Paint Day
with the ladies at Susquehanna Valley Baptist Church
Traveled through northern PA and saw a black bear
Helped my dad put in a new floor
Went on an outing with the Ambassadors
(60+ group from Mt. Zion Baptist, my home church)
Went to Arkansas to report to one of my supporting churches
and got stuck in an airport for a day
Enjoyed some beautiful scenery along the way
Got to see some people baptized at my home church
Attended a one day retreat for pastors and missionaries
Spent time with some young ladies from my church
Of course, I haven't included everything.
Since I have been back in the States I have been in a different church
almost every weekend to share a ministry report.
In reality, I always forget to take pictures,
because I am enjoying the wonderful fellowship.
I am thankful for the health, travel safety and friends that the Lord brings my way!
Please continue to pray that the Lord would quickly add to my support
and that the rest of my time here will be profitable.
