We are thankful that God is at work all over the world! Our participation in God’s plan for redemption is a gift and we will be faithful to His invitation to participate in whatever way He sees fit. We pray for and long for the time when we can be together with brothers and sisters in Christ both near and far. May God give us wisdom to determine when this is possible.
