There are a lot of great things happening in Espanola. Some incredible people , and an incredible church that is always such a blessing to the work that we do. Oh and maybe we will even get a few worms wet. My Brother does not know it yet, but we will likely stop in for a visit there as well on our way home. Then we will be back home again by the 23.
I think that this is an important event, and I enjoy doing it. It gives us an opportunity to encourage people that are interested in short term trips. They see so many possibilities around them. There is a common misconception that you have to be with a big national church organization, of you need 4 years of bible collage training before you can go on the missions field.. I am sure all would help, but we show them that by connecting with quality organizations and by working with incredible people, that is not necessary. In the photo above, if you look closely, you will see the backs of a family that visited the booth last year, and visited us in Kyrgyzstan in the spring.
