Suitcases

suitcases 2a It seems that a part of a missionary's identity is tied to suitcases.  Suitcases mean travel, planes, airports, delays, packing, unpacking, leaving family, seeing old friends and making new ones, meetings, changing climates - the list could go on! 

 

RMI staff have been traveling quite a bit these days.

 

Dan's suitcases (along with him) went to:

Haiti in September.

Lafayette, LA in October to see Trinity Bible Church as well as another trip to Haiti.

Chicago, IL to visit The Orchard Evangelical Free Church and Village Church of Bartlett.  Then to the northeast to speak at Calvary Baptist Church in Pemberton, NJ and  to visit with Great Valley Presbyterian in Philadelphia, PA -- all in November.  (There was snow!!)

Lakeline and NewChurch Georgetown in Austin, TX will see him in December.  Several new churches in that area and the Waco, TX area will be visited as well.

 

Rob's suitcases (accompanied by him) went to:

Haiti in September.

Chicago, IL to visit The Orchard Evangelical Free Church and his supporters in that area.  He took his whole family, so there were quite a number of suitcases.

 

Billy & Debbie Moses' suitcases, although recently unpacked, went with them to the RMI office for a week in October.  They were there for QuickBooks training and administrative meetings.

 

Pray the RMI staff as they go about the everyday business of operating RMI.  Pray for them as they travel, that God will bless their meetings and the contacts they make, that the trips will be successful and profitable.
