Hallelujah, got a phone call today from Bill Kaiser of Kaiser Ministries, they hold a Time of Refreshing each October for all missionaries outside of U.S. who hold a U.S. passport. We have attended several of these glorious get togethers over the years and we will attend this year as well, its an all expense paid 4 days in Leysin, Switzerland. It is by invitation only. All the missionaries meet there at the hotel and volunteer pastors and their wives greet you and take your luggage to your room, that is just the beginning of a deep time of prayer, teaching, witnessing and Praise....and the music is beyond compare. Since most of the Pastors and missionaries also lead music in their churches you can only imagine the singing that happens up in the Alps!
The train ride up through the French Alps to get to Leysin is breathtaking! The Kaisers raise the funds for all of us to stay there, gorgeous gifts are given out to everyone and each evening after the main teaching/witness, American goodies are served and we sit around and visit. Nothing like a Dr. Pepper when you haven't had one in years.
Bruce and I always come home ready to complete the Great Commission, renewed, refreshed and with new eyes upon the Lord. Thank you Bill for the phone call, God bless all who donated for this Refreshing and Praise you Lord for being my Father, my Redeemer, my all.
John, Robert and Michael painted and repaired all of Casa Hannah and are now busy pulling the pump at Casa Elisabeta, all you guys know what a stinker of a job that is!
These are the guys who come every year to help Bruce, they do all the hard jobs left over and never complain, not to me anyway lol, great friends and loyal to the children of this mission.
Its Michael's wife, Caroline, who lived with us for a year and completed all the OT, PT work for all the children, she also supplied all the equipment and chairs.
God bless you 4 and we pray to see you next year!
Sandie and Bruce
