Today, Karen and I are on our way back to Albania for the weekend, and then into Turkey. We have the privilege to take part in the 20 year celebration of Campus Crusade for Christ in Albania. This is where it all began for me. It is where God captured my heart in service for Him. It is from those early relationships with Albanians and seeing how God was working in their lives that all my subsequent mission trips have sprung. It is really beyond words the gratitude I feel that God allowed me to be even a small part of such an amazing work. Our plane leaves shortly. I simply can’t wait!
We also get to visit Turkish friends that we worked along side with during earthquake relief efforts. We still have such a close bond even though the relief work took place over a decade ago. We are so thankful that God has kept those relationships vital over the years.
And for those of you who are Vale of Shadows fans—Yes, I will be taking notes for the sequel. It is coming right along.
I will have new stories when I get back. Until then, May God Bless You!
