In 1 Chronicles 16, David gave thanks to the Lord in song when the Ark of the Covenant was brought to Jerusalem. It is written:
23 Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Tell of his salvation from day to day.
24 Declare His glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
25 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and he is to be feared above all gods. (1 Chronicles 16:23-25 ESV)
We are humbled to have the opportunity to declare His glory among the nations, specifically in Liberia. The journey to serve overseas has seemed long to us (well over 10 years since God individually called us each to go!), but we know that it is in God’s perfect timing. Now it is through Samaritan’s Purse’s Post-Residency Program that we plan to embark on a two-year adventure to Liberia to serve at Eternal Love Winning Africa (ELWA) hospital starting in January 2018. We are so blessed to have the support of our family, church family (Heritage Baptist Church in Johnson City, TN), and friends. Please pray for and with us as we begin the next step in our journey serving the Lord through medicine/surgery and declaring His abundant glory.
Also, if you haven’t read the entire passage in 1 Chronicles 16, do it. You will be blessed and we hope it will spur you on to tell of His salvation daily and to seek the Lord and his strength, to seek His presence continually (vs 11).
