Not God Forsaken but God's Beloved

I wanted to share a few pictures of the place we called home. It is a small indian village in the jungle of Venezuela. We lived and worked there for 10 years. Many would think that we were crazy to have gone there and even crazier to have been happier there than anywhere else in the world. We had to leave our home when President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela decided that all missionaries had to leave the jungle region of the country. What many people don't understand and probably never will is that we did not just leave a house, but our home and people who had become like our family. I took this picture of the village as we flew away for the last time. God has not forgotten them nor will he ever. He is with them and he always will be.

I remember the last Sunday service we attended in Cha. The pastor spoke of the footprints the missionaries will leave behind - bible translation, friendships, babies birthed, graves marked...And I am thankful for the footprints they left on my heart. I'm so glad we can look forward to a reunion in glory. Please send our love when you can. We think of them so often. m
