Mutually Encourged

I am so thankful for my Bible and the people I can meet when I read it. I have been thinking of Paul because he had a HUGE heart for so many others. He was a missionary, he traveled telling others about Jesus and then he went back to encourage them in their faith.

We recently had 2 delightful guests visit us - and we were certainly encouraged. Joy & Joyce from our sending church in Colorado came for a visit. Joyce has served as Director of Missions for Foothills Bible Church 14 years (all the years we've been on the field) and has taken such very good care of us. This was her first time to visit and we were so blessed to have her and Joy with us. This was Joy's 3rd visit and we loved it.

On the heels of the tragic death of Poland's President and many important government workers and the 70th anniversary of Katyn, we had a very significant time together.

In downtown Bielsko Biala (our town)

In Krakow's famous cloth-hall.

Meeting our dear friends and future neighbors while experiencing Polish hospitality...

and joining 3 days of our Josiah Venture Family conference in Czech Republic.

Hope this gives you a taste of our time together and what you might experience when you come for a visit!
