WHO WILL GO?
We will. Today September 15, 2009 at 5:30 pm we leave Toronto arriving in Frankfurt Germany at 7:00am tomorrow morning. After a three hour layover, we land in Calcutta around midnight.
As I sit here this morning, I am overwhelmed by the immensity of it all. (and I’m not even there yet!)
The kindness and generosity of so many. From children having garage sales to collections from places of work, from love offerings taken at dance classes to cash and cheques, from emails to phone calls, facebook to cards and letters, last minute visits at the door…all have shown us love and kindness. No wonder I’m overwhelmed. I have seen the body of Christ at work with each participating in his/her way.
So many have said as they have handed us a gift, “It isn’t very much.” Let me assure you that it has taken every act of giving, whether monetary or best wishes and prayers, to make this Asia Project possible. “Little is much when God is in it” has come to mind so often these past months.
Please know that Bob and I appreciate all of you. Each of you has played a part in Global Ministry.
Watch for updates!
MIZPAH– May the Lord watch over each as we are absent one from another.
Ruth (for Bob too) Lord send us today.
