Walking in Athens

Thursday was a busy but wonderful final day for our campaign. We enjoyed our final day at Novoshelone - the kids were sad to see us go, but it felt good that we made a real connection with them. After that, we had a celebratory lunch with our translators. They are such an important part of our work, and they have done a tremendous job. We topped off the day with Greg Coles leading a great Men's Bible study before our evening service. Our topic that night was worship, and there were multiple visitors. Our Elders met with the men of the church to discuss future efforts.

We left immediately after the evening service. It was a tearful goodbye, and we will continue to pray for them. We stayed a few hourse in Donetsk before leaving EARLY this morning on a 5:30 flight to Athens. We arrived in Athens (with our luggage) to be greeted by Alexander and Eleni Merrylitos. They took us to breakfast by the Agean Sea (where Paul landed to visit Athens in Acts 17), they led us up to the Parthenon, and we walked up to Mars Hill (where Paul preached in Acts 17). This evening, Eleni cooked a wonderful dinner for us. This has been a terrific way to "decompress" from our trip and encourage missionaries that we support. We will visit ancient Corinth tomorrow before flying home on Sunday. That day is quickly approaching, and we look forward to seeing all of you!

We are anxious to see all of you and hear first hand of all the good work that has been done. Enjoy Athens tomorrow and have a safe trip home.

I don't know what I will do next week not checking 2 and 3 times a day for one of your updates! This has been wonderful!

Our prayers are with you all.

What a great way to end such an amazing trip! It must be exciting to walk in the same places that brother Paul walked so many years ago! I know it's considerably different now, but can't you just imagine what it must have looked like when he was around?

I'm kinda like Tawanda, everytime I get close to a computer I check for email or one of Andrew's updates!

Can't wait to see everybody Sunday evening. Love you Tanny! I hope you're taking a bunch of pics!

How exciting to read about your tours yesterday. David, I was able to call and get the credit card canceled in just a few minutes after I talked to you. I got the # through the 800 information and the lady was able to find it with my SS #.
Have a great rest of the trip home, I miss you all.

Love,
Melva
 
It is amazing. Mere time is the only divide as the follower's and the message remains the same, ageless.
I am very excited about the work that you all have done, but even more so to see Tansy tomorrow. Tansy's Mom
