A taste of the world!

Cooking is far from the usual in my kitchen this week, while we host our Global Missions Conference. My friend from Thailand showed me how to make an awesome stir-fry! I stocked up on quick lunch components to send off with the kids, since I know life is a bit crazy around here this week.

Last night we had all of the missionaries to our home for dinner. After an "American style" meal, two of our couples made us their national drinks: Cocido from Paraguay and Chai from India. The kitchen was busy with spices and strainers and dry tea mixes and couples doing what is universal ... trying to work together miraculously as one! The result was delicious, and we all enjoyed sampling the culture.

We finished the evening with a time of prayer, shared in five different languages. It's amazing that God understands every tribe and tongue and extends His love to all of us. His heart for the world is not limited. The sound of voices lifting praise in the languages of people of the world ... beautiful.

It's a full and wonderful week here for us. We appreciate your prayers, and I'll look forward to sharing more with you!
