Whew! Another Sunday has come and gone and we are exhausted. This week we've been in OH, PA, and WV. Sometimes we wake up and we have to take a few moments to get our bearings straight to know what state or continent we're on.
We've been in a great mix of supporting and new churches. The Lord has been blessing greatly. We've been saving love offerings for plane tickets and are really close to the total we need for purchasing them. On two recent occasions, I was given cash and checks by so many people that I literally had money falling out of my pockets! Once I had thought I counted all the money only to find there was more hidden in another pocket. God is so generous to us. It brought to mind the verse in Luke 6:38
"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."
Besides financial blessings, God gave us a good blessing to have a scenic drive in between meetings along a peninsula in Erie PA. Joel and Amelia enjoyed the scenery and the wild life while Logan enjoyed a good nap.
Jennifer and I fly out Tuesday for a conference in Canada. Please continue to pray for the kids and Jennifer to handle the temporary separation well. We have a lot of packing and organizing to do so we will write more later.
Joshua and Jennifer Smith are in Buenos Aires, Argentina to plant churches, train national leaders, continue teaching in the Bible College and expand the Radio Ministry.
