Just a quick post as a testimony to grace. I'm currently out of the country, and there are too many positives to state.
I've stayed in three Christian homes, been driven all round the place, attended an installation of a Professor, seen some awesome sights, and had the joy to preach.
But what I want to talk about is the kindness saints poured out. God's truth is at work in these leaders of the church and their families acting as hosts.
Food, fun and fellowship - such particular, detailed, gentle, care and attention, all to remove burdens, express the Lord's affection, and make my stay a treat.
How encouraging to see the labors of their love as they invest themselves for Christ in their ministry as hosts - may the Lord bless them all, may they continue to bear fruit.
As far as I can gauge their flocks are in good hands - what an amazing advertisement to the Gospel of God's free grace! Christ is pouring power into channels of His love.
