Back In Jax

We are glad to be back. We have been driving in rain for 2 days. I forgot to take pictures yesterday. We were in 2 new churches. In the morning we were in a church where we were invited by the pastor to come for a one day conference. We didn’t even get to present our field to the church nor was anyone interested at all in international missions. It was basically a social project conference where nothing about evangelism or discipleship was even mentioned. It was a very strange experience. We felt like we wasted a lot of time and money getting there.

The church we were at in the evening was much better! The pastor gave us the entire service to present our field. All we want is to be able to tell people about the need in Petén and what God is doing there. The pastor had been a missionary in South Africa, so his heart was reflected in the church. Afterwards he talked like he wished he was still on the field. I think we made him homesick. He might be coming down next November to teach in the institute!
