10:45 p.m., Sunday, June 17 - Father's Day
It's been a good day of worship, coffee - twice! - team lunch, meeting with our Albanian translators, team dinner, fixing the computer (!), exchanging texts with sons and daughter-in-laws, and now, writing this blog. I'm mentally tired. The Muslim call to prayer has just finished wafting down the mountain valley, the dogs have calmed down, and, once again, I can hear the river running its course down the mountains and through town. Peaceful.
After the team meeting there was a beautiful rainbow shining bright up in the mountains. I believe God was sending us a message. By God's amazing and faithful grace and the leading of the Holy Spirit, we're here to let our light shine before others and bring glory to God...a small light, a dimly burning wick, to be sure, but still shining and making Christ known. Thanks be to God.
