Happy birthday dear Lindsey!
Our readers are aware that life in Africa is always unusual. Well, furlough time for missionaries is likewise unique. Living out of a suitcase and traveling about like sojourners requires some adaptation. Joy and I were brainstorming about how to celebrate Lindsey’s 18th birthday since it fell while we were in attendance at the Polishing The Pulpit venue. We were able to go to a nearby grocery store and purchase a cake, candles, and lighter. Then after the evening lectures concluded we called some friends and family to meet us for some cake and visiting. We are certainly proud of Lindsey! She carries herself with such grace and poise (Does that sound like proud parents?). Happy Birthday (again) Lindsey! We had assembled in an area which had closed for the evening, but was not locked. The lights were off. After the cake cutting we were informed that the area was “off limits” for the evening, so we had to take our party elsewhere.
Following PTP we were able to enjoy one day at a Bluegrass festival. We all enjoyed the live music performances. Luke had his guitar with him, and was able to have it signed by the legendary musician Tony
Please keep us in your prayers as our travels continue to take us about to thank various supporters. Special thanks to our supporters whom we will not be able to see in person this time - we appreciate your understanding.
In Christ's service,
