It has been a whirlwind summer but a satisfying one. Only now have I been able to make time to offer a summary. In later posts I hope to tell more about each of our trips.
It began teaching a course on the historical geography of Israel which climaxed in a two-week tour of Israel where archeological, topographical and historical sites were emphasized.
Jennifer, Lacey and I then went on an almost three-week teaching tour in Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia (Brisbane). Jennifer and Lacey taught children while I led some discussions among adults.
After Lipscomb’s Summer Celebration, Jennifer and I participated in the VBS of the Pitman Church of Christ in NJ. We always enjoy visiting that congregation whose long time minister is Dan Cooper…and more on that later.
Saturday we returned from Guatemala where we participated in one of the surgical weeks of Health Talents International at Clinica Ezell. Jennifer served as a nurse and I served as Chaplain.
We are grateful to be safe, healthy and home. And we are grateful for new friends, renewal of friendship with old friends, and the opportunity to serve in the Kingdom this summer.
I plan to say more in the future, but now I must prepare for the coming semester which begins next week.
