Faith in God’s Mighty Love

Does our faith rest on having prayers answered as we think they should be answered, or does it rest on that mighty love that went down into death for us?
Elisabeth Elliott, A Path Through Suffering

September 18, 2019

Is it possible that our last letter was in February of this year? Every week, we sent out a prayer update for almost 19 years. Then one day we stopped when we revealed to everyone that we were leaving France to return to the US for an early retirement. But life kept on going.

We have been back in the US since June 28. In the weeks and months prior to leaving the nation that was our home for 31 years, we gave all of our attention to finishing well, saying our goodbyes, and clearing out our house. It took all of our attention, time and energy to get through that period. Prior to leaving France, we were overwhelmed by the kindness of so many. Two hundred people gathered on a hot Sunday afternoon to celebrate our many years. Then early on a Friday morning, dear friends came to see us off at the airport. Incredible days.

Now we are in our own home in Dacula, Georgia having settled in. Our parents’ furniture fills our house. Through generous gifts of individuals and churches, we have been able to find all that was needed to start life over again. Our daughter, Elissa, lives less than a 10 minute drive away. Her big news is her recent engagement to a young man we both love and appreciate. Our son, Tim, and wife, Lizzi, live north of Boston. They are expecting their first child and our first grandchild. Many exciting changes in a short period of time, leaving us grateful for a faithful, gracious God and a loving church family that spans the globe.

We have begun our autumn tour of churches. Unlike past home assignments, we view this as a time to see old friends, make new ones, and more than anything else thank the Alliance family for years of faithful support through the Great Commission Fund.
