JUST A FEW MORE DAYS…
until our 4th ANNIVERSARY!
It is so hard to believe that we have been here for four
years now. Actually we have been here almost 4 &1/2 years but we
have been in this building for four years.
Looking back to see our accomplishments I need to only go here
to see our monthly diary since the day we arrived to the present. I
enjoy reading through those adventures remembering the hard trials and
smiling at the blessings.
One only needs to click here
to see over 5000
photographs documenting the work accomplished here.
I must admit it has sometimes been difficult being away from
family and friends. The one time I was able to make it back home was to
bury my sister and even then my family did not accompany me. So my
father has never seen my wife or two youngest children.
Yet it has been joyful as we have seen those converted and
grow in the Lord. We have seen so many lives touched and changed and
happy to be together in this Church.
After six months in the new home we finally have a living
room set and a table and chairs. No more eating on the floor. Yea! I
think the best part of being here is being able to appreciate things so
taken for granted back in the States. A couch, a bed, food, even
electricity as “brownouts” are very common.
The very best thing is to be able to touch others in a way
that tells them that God loves them and wants a relationship with them.
THE CHILDREN OF PBC
It excites me to see the children growing up in the Church
some of who will be leaders in 10 years or so. They are so happy to be
here and to learn and grow.
These years I count out of all I have lived, to be my most
productive and fulfilled and I am happy to have reached this goal and
look forward to many more accomplishments here in Payatas.
