We’re back home!!
After approximately 15 hours of traveling, the Lebanon Team made it back to the states safely. Before returning to Atlanta, Georgia, the Lord decided to give us an unexpected treat to Frankfurt, Germany. We went to Germany because of a medical emergency that occurred on the plane with another passenger. The plane did not have a choice but to turn around because of the medical emergency. Despite this medical emergency, we were able to stay in a fancy hotel, where we had dinner and breakfast, and saw really modern-looking sites in Germany. It all worked out because the Lord provided allowed us to enjoy time in Germany together, which brought the Lebanon Team even closer than ever. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
After staying a night in Germany, we got on a plane to travel back to Georgia. The Lord moved through us that day as we prayed for safe travels home and He, in turn, protected us. “…for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).
The God of the Lebanon Team is a consuming fire because He allowed us to overcome our fears in Lebanon so that we can be His witnesses for Jesus’ Gospel in Georgia and beyond. “For our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29).
Now, we are free from fear of rejection of others because of what the Lord did through us in Lebanon and what He will continue to do through us to be lights for Him in the United States. “For we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake (2 Corinthians 4:5). “Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the Gospel should live of the Gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:14).
Pray for Dave, Jeri, Sarah, Deborah, Kim, and Valhalla as we adjust back to life in the United States and evangelize in Georgia, the world, and beyond. This is because God gave us the gift of evangelism so that we can now do His will here in the states and beyond. “But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will” (1 Corinthians 12:11).
We will never forget Lebanon and the lives (children and families) that the Lord through us touched while we were there. Lebanon is now a blessed city in the name of Jesus as a result of what He did through us while we were there. “It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God” (Isaiah 35:2).
Continue to pray for us in the name of Jesus.
