Following Paul's Footsteps

Well, since we spent yesterday in Athens (Acts 17), we followed him to Corinth today (Acts 18). Alexander showed us around the ruins of ancient Corinth. He provides incredible insight into the Biblical history of each place we visit. We saw a plaque honoring Erastus (mentioned in Romans 16, among other places), we stood where Paul would have stood when defending himself before Gallio, and we saw part of the sign for the Hebrew synagogue, where Paul would have taught about Christ. It was truly amazing to feel that connection with the text!

In the afternoon, we visited Cenchrea, where Paul shaved his head because of a vow to God he had made. (Don't worry - even though we were following in his steps today, no one shaved his head!) After that, some of us went back to the hotel to rest, while the other group visited Epidaurus and saw an incredible ancient ampitheater. We also came back through Napholi, the first capital of Greece. Alexander and Eleni Merrylitos have been such wonderful guides this weekend, and they have taken good care of us. We will begin tomorrow by having our own worship service with them in the Omonia Church of Christ building. Then, we will hop on a plane and head to Philadelphia, then Nashville!

As we conclude this trip, we all have alot of stories. Some of them are humorous, while others show the frustration we faced at some points. I believe Satan would love for us to let those little challenges discourage us - yet our team is determined not to let them. We were given the opportunity to teach children about Jesus, encourage Christians in a mission field, and hopefully change lives in the process. He can use our meager efforts to accomplish His goals. Let's all pray that will happen.

God bless!

I can not wait to hear the stories. I think we might need to take a long Sunday afternoon nap becasuse Tansy will be exploding with conversation and we will be hanging on every word. I am so proud of her. I just want to yell from the top of the world.
Praying all day everyone has a safe trip back "HOME". trw
She is Home! Thank you God. trw
