June 6--Day 22
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Written By Rev

The last couple of days have been filled with many heart breaking, exciting, frustrating, patient and impatient times. But God is good.

This time that we have had has been filled with rest; a gift from God. God has provided six days of labor and one day of rest. What a brilliant God we have. For Viking and I, we have rested since Friday. God knew that we needed this and Viking and I cannot be ever more grateful for this rest.

This rest has consisted of so many good things: great fellowship, great church, great food, great company, great sleep and great time of relaxing and reading.

We had been traveling at a very quick pace on the east coast and until Arkansas when we enjoyed great rest as well, but God provided us with a breakdown and blessed us with so many things during this time of rest.

We want to thank you for your prayers and encouragement during this discouraging time where we have waited to seek God's will. I will admit, that I was getting impatient, but Viking kept reminding me that God is going to do something great in this time. He has done just that.

During this time, one thing has stuck out to me the most: God's family. We have encountered and have been blessed by so many people, as well as members of God's family. People have provided meals, hospitality, rides, the use of their vehicle, the use of their home, money and so many other things.

It has been awesome to know that even though we are both far away from our families, the family of God is everywhere taking care of one another. God is good. It has been amazing to be blessed by so many people and we cannot thank them enough for all that they have done because without them, this trip wouldn't be possible.

Praise the Lord for the family of God.
Praise God for rest for His people.
God is Good.

To God be the Glory.


  1. Man- I don't read for a couple days and things go nuts! God is faithful- of that you can be sure. ;-) Break her in right!


    I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens.
    This fits both of you as you encounter detours in your mission journey. These happens for a reason as you both well know and just marvels those us who read your blogs. May God keep blessing you as you bless him. Mrs. Anderson
