Sweet Sabbath


"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if e do not give up.  Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."  Galatians 6:9-10
 
 
Sunday is my favorite day of SITAG's Conference.  After three days dedicated to corporate worship and the preaching of God's Word, my thirsty heart is beginning to rehydrate.
 

I've been surrounded by faithful servants of God like Jim and Carolyn, who have given their lives to the Roviana translation project for the last thirty-three years, and are nearing completion of a whole Bible.  Other servants sneak in and out, like Margreet, who keeps refilling the water bottles and pouring them into the hot water pots so we can enjoy our coffee during the breaks.


But my very favorite part is when the children join the adults.  When we sing, the rafters ring. 
 

Our entire SITAG family together for a church service, united in heart and voice, makes my heart soar.

Yes, Edi, it is the same sweet baby, except she's a beautiful little girl now.

You, too, have been on our minds and in our prayers more often than usual!
