Ephesus ROCKS! (lit.)

https://goturkey.com/en/pages/read/ephesus I’m sure you’ve read about the Temple of Diana of the Ephesians in the bible; but the only remains of her temple is a lone column left standing on the temple site, in a valley near the city center. What you’re seeing in today’s post, are pictures of the Theatre where Paul was in Acts 19.  Look carefully at the photos with the trees, and you can see the Theatre in the distance; it is massive, and very high.

A Refuge for Mary

On the road again

On the road again, to Fayetteville, North Carolina to check the progress of the Servicemen’s Home remodel, (more on that later) and while we’re there we want to have some church! We’ll be there Wednesday through Friday night, and then having a Fellowship Meeting Saturday, in Jacksonville, NC at Rev. Gandy’s; we would greatly appreciate all prayers. We return to Washington next Tuesday. God bless you everyone!

We first flew to Athens, and the next night went by ship across the Aegean Sea to Turkey. We sailed by night, and spent a day in each of numerous destinations including []

AWESOME CONFERENCE!

Fall Conference 2015 has come and gone, and so have many of you. I pray that your return to your home and work was safe, and that you are refreshed in the Lord!  I’m sorry I didn’t get to bid many of you farewell; everything went by so quickly; may God richly bless you all until we meet again here, there (Campground) or in the air. In the wake of many conferences, some say “that was the best one ever”. That is always []
