Another update from Karen, who had a hard time finding her way “off the bus and onto the mission field,” but who now seems completely at home. Look at her! See that smile on her face? That’s what joy looks like. Find out for yourself by joining First Baptist Church’s year-long, every-member mission to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia. It’s only Day 168. There are 197 days left!
It was a real pleasure today to read to Ms. Knox’s second grade class at Glen Lea Elementary School. I took two of my grandson Parker’s favorite books. Even though germs were rampant in the group (coughs and sneezes and sniffles), the kids welcomed me with a cheerful hello and loved my stories. It was just where I needed to be today (like your hike on Thursday): sharing God’s love with a classroom of precious children.
