When we were with Jake and Margaret late in August before we returned to Africa, we agreed to begin reading the Psalms together, one per day, knowing that we would be sharing the same words of the Lord even thousands of miles away. Today's reading is Psalm 26 and seems especially appropriate. From verses 1, 8 and 12: " . . . I have trusted in the Lord without wavering . . . I love the house where you live, O Lord, the place where your glory dwells. . . My feet stand on level ground; in the great assembly I will praise the Lord."
David's sister Debbie had a double blow on Sunday. Her mother-in-law passed away early Sunday morning in Kerrville. She too had been very ill. Debbie's husband and sons had been keeping vigil in Texas as Debbie ministered to Jake in Searcy.
Our bags are packed and we will be on our way to the airport in Livingstone soon. We should arrive in Little Rock Tuesday afternoon.
Your prayers are appreciated.
