The Last Several Days

The last several days have been dear to me as I have enjoyed each of my children and grandchildren, too. Martha and I hosted Rebecca as well as  Raymond & Crystal with their three young ones. We all spent some time together with Robert, too, at a local eatery. In addition, we were blessed with time well spent on more than one occasion with Martha’s son Jim, his wife Denise and their teenagers. Now, it’s just the two of us once more.

Back to doctor visits for Martha and me for various things. I’m still recovering from surgery on my ring finger of the left hand; the nail and an internal tumor were removed. Hopefully, that will solve some of the pain in my left hand, and unfortunately, the steroid injection has yet to mitigate the companion pain due to an injured ulnar nerve. Martha continues with her tests and such. We certainly must be doing our part to help doctors make their boat and maybe airplane installment payments!

As often is the case, I am behind in publishing Gospel Gazette Online and working on The Voice of Truth International magazines. January 31, Martha and I are to fly to Guyana, South America, where we will remain through March 2. We have an ambitious schedule that will take us throughout the tropical nation to encourage brethren and help equip them to edify themselves, edify their country and lay groundwork for installing elders in the future. We covet your prayers.

Packed Two Suitcases Tonight

Earlier tonight, I packed two suitcases in anticipation of Martha and my travel January 31, 2020 to Guyana, South America. Together, they hold 40 NKJV Bibles and 200 Ready Reference booklets. The luggage will cost $40 each for a total of $80 as second checked bags for Martha and me; the first bag for each of us will cost $30 each or a total of $60 for 8 Bibles that didn’t fit in the other bags, some food and clothes.

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas looms in the near future, but we are mindful of our impending annual mission trip to the 10 regions of the tropical country of Guyana. We are scheduled to return to the USA on March 2.

This year, the theme is, “If Not Now, When?” Topics that will be discussed concern foreign brethren taking responsibility for evangelizing their own nation, edifying themselves, beginning to assume a greater role in financial accountability and laying the groundwork for appointing elders sometime in the future. Two Guyanese preaching brethren and I will share the speaking, and Martha will teach Christian ladies.

We solicit your prayers, and anyone wishing to participate financially may send a check to the Siwell Road Church of Christ, 4075 S. Siwell Rd., Jackson, MS 39212 with “Rushmore Mission Trip” written on the memo line. The elders of this congregation oversee our mission work and hold funds for us to this end.

Home Again

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday, Martha and I returned home after several weeks abroad visiting two Asian nations—Myanmar (Burma) and India. We have so many good friends in both of those countries, but we were only able to visit some of them recently. Here are just a few sample pictures depicting some of the places to which we went. They include the Shwedagon Pagoda in downtown Yangon, Myanmar and the Taj Mahal in Agra, India.

The journey home was tiring, as was the trek from the USA to Asia weeks ago. Each of those trips involved about 30 hours of travel via three jet airplanes. Consequently, between nations to which we went, and other countries also through which we passed, Martha and I traveled in China, Myanmar, Thailand, India and Russia. It’s good to be home in one’s own bed, though we thoroughly enjoyed our friends and Christian brethren overseas. Traveling with us was brother Nigel Milo from Guyana, South America.
