I return to the U.S. in just nine days... looking forward to it for sure! Please pray for wisdom for Bro. Green and his family as they transition back to the states as well. They're not sure what God has for them to do just yet, so they would appreciate it very much.

My times are in thy hand. — He shall choose our inheritance for us. — Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness; ... make thy way straight before my face.
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shalt bring it to pass. — In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. — Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. — Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. — Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. — Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

You get moving!
A lot of books have been written, videos made on the subject of staying in shape. And a lot of people spend a lot of time and money getting their bodies in top form and keeping them that way. It's a big step toward healthier lifestyle and a longer lifespan.
Did you know that spiritual fitness is even more important than it's physical counterpart? The scriptures tell us to "Stir up the gift" in II timothy 1:6. It's important to keep the wheels and cogs greased up so that we can "be ready always to give an answer to every man..." in I Peter 3:15.
Bro. Green goes to the gym about 4 times a week to work out, and I like to go with him to stay on my A game physically. It's rough stuff sometimes. Especially when you get so weak after lifting what seems like half a ton... then you look down and it was 10 lb. dumbbell. Embarrassing, let me tell you! On top of the scheduled stuff, the Green kids and Jon and I play just about every sport imaginable round the clock... basketball, football, soccer, volleyball, etc... So I get pretty sore sometimes. :) But I do it to stay fit.
In much the same way, getting off the spiritual couch and getting those muscles moving is tough, but REWARDING! It can enable you to take some pressure and heat that otherwise could easily knock you out of the race for God. It's effective! It give that boost when rusty parts would have started falling off the car.
So get off that spiritual lazy-boy and get moving for God! :) You'll be so glad you did.

I try to slap myself sometimes to try and wake myself up from the dream, but it's no use! I really AM here in Europe! The Lord is Good...
The pics show only a small portion of the experience, it gives you kind of an idea of what's been going on the past couple of days. Flying with unbelievably cheap tickets on Ryanair, we spent about 28 hours in-country, and were able to get quite a few tracts distributed as we went. Bad weather? No problem! Rain or shine, we're having a good time...
