This photograph was taken during the commissioning of our band of ordinary servants. A commissioning is a delightful gesture of support from the sending church. It is a formal acknowledgement that says, “We’re with you. We’ll be thinking of you. We’re praying for you.”
The trip is less than a week away and your scribe is filled with a sense of peace about this peregrination; an appropriate response since most people in this band have explicitly stated that they sensed God directing them to make this journey. This point is worth emphasizing and pondering; God continues to speak to His ordinary people even to this day. It is a sign of His love that He does so. And it is comforting to the soul that He does so.
Here is the flight itinerary for most of the band:
