I wish Godspeed to my new RCA Mission friends as they travel back to their homes in Michigan, New Hampshire and Illinois after a week of doing His good work here in Stumpy Point. I pray for them, for those who where here previously and for those who are traveling here this weekend. I am especially grateful to Laurie and Bruce who have been coordinating the RCA Stumpy Point Mission. They and all the missionaries have renewed my faith in the innate goodness of mankind and have proven by their joyous selflessness that the Gospel is alive! I am so thankful for them nourishing me in mind, body and spirit. They are helping not only to rebuild my home, but are turning my tears into dancing. Through them the Lord, our light and our love has turned my night into day!
