COVID - the Negative, which is Positive
We were cleared for travel, and fly out Friday morning, tomorrow, to assist and serve a YWAM (Youth with a Mission) Discipleship training school (DTS) outreach team who are serving the nation of Saint Croix. We heard that the DTS team will arrive the same day. We will do lots of different things on the base, and we will let you know as we know. We are flexible and expect to serve in many different areas.
Delores is doing well. She loves to receive calls from us, but we find it very frustrating to visit with flowers and a balloon for the New Year, and still not even see her.
Dejan's mother is doing so much better, she is enjoying her friends, and was able to get an eye exam from funds received from us. The bill was exactly what was given one month.
We had a wonderful time with our family all together in our home. It was a wonderful week and we hated to see it come to an end. We ate together, played together, went to the Georgia Aquarium, laughed, and I cried when they left.
We had a chance to visit a number of friends, which was very special, including Carolyn, the German family and visiting Jezdimir family, all whom we know from Bosnia, Taylor's family, our local family, and our wonderful church family, as well.
We have not found a couple or family to rent our home yet, though a missionary family who were turned away from China because of a COVID test peculiarity for one in their family considered it, but found a mission house where they could stay. Another couple moving to the area came to check it out, but they needed to be closer to his job. Our lovely home could be a great blessing for the right person, or couple. Please contact us, leave a message with your name and contact number, and let us know the situation. Thank you so much. We are trusting God, because He knows what is to come and we don't.
You could also back us with your gifts to add to our support base as God might want you be involved in reaching the nations through us. Thank you all, for this is a joint effort of fishing for men, for God's sake.
"I will set a sign among them and will send survivors from them to the nations...to the distant coastlands that have neither heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations." Isaiah 66:19
"Sing to the LORD a new song,
Sing His praise from the end of the earth!
You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it.
You islands, and those who dwell on them....
Let them shout for joy from the tops of the mountains.
Let them give glory to the LORD
And declare His praise in the coastlands." Isaiah 42:10,12
