It has been great having Paul and his family hang out with us. Friday night, he shared from his life and some testimonies of the work that is being done in S.E. Asia. He has only been there for 3 years and already he is finding himself picking up more of the local language. It is always refreshing to hear from a person who has immersed himself in the culture that he is called to love and serve.
Today, we had some time for questions and answers. I was blessed to hear some thoughtful questions from our members. I knew that they were seriously thinking through some of the missiological implications of things. But of course we had some pretty good practical questions as well.
It is encouraging to know that we will be able to partner up with him when we head out to Indonesia for this international church plant. We are excited about all the things that God is going to do.
