On P.E.I.!

Bless the Lord, O my soul;

And all that is within me,

bless His holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits:

Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you

with loving kindness and tender mercies.

(Psalm 103:1-4)

We have arrived in Prince Edward Island. Les-Isles-de-la-Madeline –our destination,– is now a 5-hour boat-ride away.

We decided to leave the United States yesterday. We left the motel where we were staying, picked up mail in the morning ($300 – thank-you, Lord!, and a handful of bills – help, Lord!) and headed north and east.  Campsites are closed for the season in most of the northeastern states and provinces, but there was a motel in PEI with a room large enough to fit us all and enough gas in the tank to get us there.

We have several appointments in the next couple of days, and a laundry list of things to do, including changing the oil and winterizing the trailer, so our days will be full, though not too full to spend a chunk of each day in prayer.

Our prayers are full of thanksgiving for the safety and clear leading of God in this year’s excellent summer circuit.  We are enthusiastic about the Godward changes that we hear about via your letters and emails, and that you tell us about in your phone calls. These changes in your relationship harmony, in parenting, and in church life/structure could not happen without prayer and commitment to “do hard work”.

We’re setting up the first seminars for islanders, and ask for your prayers that there would be huge paradigm shifts in their marriages — changes so swift and incredible that they can only be attributed to the power of Christ.
