MORE connecting the dots

You may remember that we spent quite a bit of time in late July and August involved in caring for the SIM missionaries who were evacuated from Liberia.  We are very grateful that God enabled our missionaries, Nancy Writebol and Rick Sacra, as well as our partner missionary Kent Brantly, to overcome the Ebola virus.  The Writebols are living in the Charlotte area and come into the US office frequently for interviews.  

A couple of weeks ago, they were flown to London for an interview with a Swedish news crew. (I guess that was something like almost meeting in the middle...)  This week we heard from a Norwegian friend of ours who attended the International Community Chapel of Saitama (ICCS) when he and his family served as missionaries in Japan.  He saw the interview, captured some screen shots and sent them to Stan.

Stan saw the Writbols in the office a couple of days later and showed them the photos.

Our friends told us Nancy's testimony was well presented. God has given her so many opportunities to honor God and what He has done in her life.

And once again God connects the dots in our lives!

Connecting the dots

Stan and I joined Joe Handley, President of Asian Access,  Bruce Johnson, President of SIM USA, and his lovely wife Mary for dinner a week ago. I have appreciated that even though we are no longer officially "Asian Access" missionaries, we have this ongoing connection through the Strategic Partnership between our two missions. The Johnsons also were with Asian Access before joining SIM.
