PD Series: Love and London

We just returned from a wonderful trip to England for Dave’s older brother’s wedding. As I sorted through photos from our two week visit to London, I simply could not believe it had been four years since Dave and I had gone overseas!

As I think back to our lovely stay with our host family, conquering the Underground, learning new words and manners, absorbing history and Christianity, dodging crowds, witnessing a marriage covenant, late night cups of tea and chatting, worshipping with English believers and making new friends, I am reminded:

We were made for this.

We were made to travel together, and we were made to encourage and be encouraged by believers around the world!

I am thankful our Father provided us with a taste of overseas before we venture overseas again in October for our short term scout trip to Asia. We were reminded of His kindness, faithfulness, and presence with us no matter where we find our feet planted; and we came back encouraged, strengthened, and excited for our next trip.

He knows what we need!
