"I will be brief ..."
Today was great. I was able to visit St. Matthew's (Portland) this morning for worship, and thoroughly enjoyed being with the congregation in the Lord's presence, hearing his Word, and getting to know the people of the parish. I was amazed at the sheer number of ex-missionaries and Christian college and seminary professors who are a part of that church. My hope is to continue a strong connection with what is the only ACNA congregation in the state of Oregon.
Immediately after wrapping things up with St. Matthew's, I booked almost 500 miles as I headed from Portland, Oregon to Lake Almanor, California, where I am visiting Christ the Redeemer and St. Thomas churches and St. Andrew's Academy. The drive was hard, but traffic was light on a Sunday evening and I made good time. The very hospitable rector and headmaster Rev. Brian Foos and his wife have kindly taken me into their home, and I am hoping to be refreshed even as I share about the mission to Argentina.
Please pray for me as I preach and talk about my mission this Monday, October 18th, on the Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist. Pray that God will open the hearts of the men and women of these churches to partner with me, in prayer and possibly also in finances.
