On Our Way Home

post date: July 13, 2013

I am writing this shortly before our final service at Cannon Beach on Friday night.

As soon as the service is over, we will head to Portland to rest at a motel for a few hours before our flight to Seattle leaves at 5:05 AM. We change planes in Seattle and fly on to Dallas, meaning that we should be home by mid-afternoon. 

In the last two weeks we have traveled over 5500 miles. We have flown from Dallas to Philadelphia to Bangor and from Portland to Atlanta to Portland and now from Portland to Seattle to Dallas. So far every flight has gone well and we’ve not lost a bag yet.

Along the way we’ve enjoyed ministering at Living Waters Bible Conference in Maine and Cannon Beach Conference Center in Oregon. I’ve preached 24 times in all so my throat feels a bit scratchy but otherwise I feel fine. Marlene told me I looked tired, which I guess I am, but it’s a good tired, and I’m glad we were able to make these two trips.

I’ve enjoyed preaching from the life of Joseph both weeks. You can’t study his story without coming to a deeper appreciation of God’s providence in the tiniest details of life. I think it has been good for my soul to get a new view of God through the lens of a man who lived almost 4000 years ago.

We’re grateful to our friends who have prayed for us, and to the folks in Maine and Oregon who encouraged us both weeks. It’s been a good trip.

And soon we’ll be home, which certainly puts a smile on my face.
