Deputation Travels

After eight weeks and four thousand miles, we are safely home and enjoying the memories of what God has given. Here are some of the highlights of His goodness:

Safety every mile of the way.
The ‘Green Blessing’ started nearly every time; there were no flat tires nor mechanical problems; no accidents with the thousands of cars we passed; and no mishaps with all the animals along the way. Here are a few snapshots of some of God’s delightful creation we saw.

An Arizona road -- yes it is used!

Southern California hills still smoky from the fires.

Tall cross in Texas along the freeway. Thank God we still have some freedom!

A sunset I call "Night Punch."

Opportunities to share our ministry.
A group of believers in National City, CA. let us speak to them one Sunday morning. Every member was from the Philippines and they showed great interest in our ministry. We also were able to speak in four Arizona churches where each group listened carefully about Campus Bible Fellowship. One church in Tempe is burdened for ASU, just five minutes away from them.

Making New Friends.

Visiting With Family.
Michael’s sisters, Mother, and Sharon’s two Aunts and one Uncle were all along the pathway of our journey. We thank the Lord for the unexpected blessing of seeing each one.

Visiting with "The Girls."
A few years a go we met these five orphan sisters who live in the Arizona desert. God gave us many opportunities to spend time with them on this trip, sit in church with them, teach them how to take notes from the sermon, have some ‘talk time’, and take a bunch of crazy pictures of them. They loved our camera and took a few crazy pictures of their own. We have grown to love the Girls deeply.
