It’s a flat out gorgeous Palm Sunday here in sunny Florida. Wanted to share two sets of photos with you.
In the first set, drum roll please, enjoy our most recent Hand family portraits! These come courtesy of our friend and talented photographer Kristina, taken shortly after Thanksgiving last year. Notice the slight hint of fall in these scenes – it’s as much fall as we get here in central Florida.
I’d hoped to share this second set of photos with you sooner, after I returned from my ministry trip to Thailand in March. These were captured at the Global Technology Leaders (you might notice the misspelled ‘GLT’ welcome banner created by the hotel) conference my team helped to facilitate. About 25 of our missionaries representing over 11 different countries gathered for worship, leadership development, technology training and problem solving sessions.
The three pictures at the top (clockwise from top left corner) show some remarkable leaders from around the world. It is truly a privilege to work with and serve these men:
~ Ephesians from East Africa. (Yes, his name is Ephesians and his life story is a true example of Ephesians 3:20)
~ Mishel from the Middle East / Russ from Canada / Me with Ephesians / Miheret from Ethiopia
How we wish you could meet each one of these talented people! The Lord has brought them into His service and is using them to accelerate the Great Commission. Thank Him with us for them.
