You Will Go Out With Joy

"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."  Isaiah 55:12 NIV

The next step of our journey with the Lord is fast approaching and our anticipation and excitement is growing.

Much like Christmas Eve as a child. The anticipation of what Santa would bring to my sister and I was always heightened.  We knew that Santa would never bring us underwear and socks. (Only our parents did that!)  Under the tree we found things that would thrill us.

That’s how it feels as we prepare for the Great Asia Adventure.  We know the Lord has gifts waiting for us to unwrap during the next four months and we excitedly anticipate what He has in store!   Each new development in our schedule causes us to rejoice and thank God for His amazing plan.

Your prayers, encouragement and generous support are a vital part of this trip being a success.  Thank you!  Our hearts' desire is to fulfill the purpose of God for this trip.  And to enjoy every part of it.

Blessings - Gary


  1. Godspeed, Pastors Gary and Pat. The people of Southeast Asia are so fortunate to have you two bring them messages of our Christian faith. My husband and I have traveled extensively in that part of the world and it continues to fascinate me!God willing, we will continue to return and explore places we have yet to visit, ie., Sri Lanka and Mynmar. From Thailand, I've only been able to look across a border location into Mynmar, but the thought of actually visiting and enjoying the people, sights and sounds is an overwhelming desire and passion of mine. So, looking forward to following you two on your mission of ministering.

    1. Sonya - Thank you for your love and prayers! May the Lord grant you the desires of your heart.
