Logbook Lines – No Place Like Home
And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk. Rev. 21:22-24a ESV
Notes from Logbook – January 2013, in Northwestern US
“Settling in to spend five months with home church.”
One-year stateside assignments are wonderful but very busy times. One family spent the first seven months crisscrossing the US from IL to FL, TN to MN, MO to CA, and more before finally stopping at their home church community for a season. There they got to breathe, visit family and supporters, and finally take a well-deserved, one-week vacation. That was followed by preparation for returning to their assignment in Africa.
PRAYER: We praise You, God, for home churches, where believers know us and love us even when we are tired and not at our best. Thank you for a place to recharge batteries and deepen our relationship with you. Amen
