I'm off!

I'm off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz. . . . Actually, no, I'm leaving the land where I have been trying to reach out to real wizards (who are not cute and funny like in Oz, but rather are deadly serious in their evil - rather more like the wicked witch of the West, but without green skin) and heading off to the United States.

Ah, the United States. . . . land of sharp cheedar cheese, peanut butter, barbeque, tortillia chips and cheese salsa. I'll be spending almost two weeks there taking a doctoral class in interpersonal relationships and spiritual formation (I know, some of you are probably thinking that those are two subjects I really need to work on - just trying to beat you to the punch).

Anyway, pray for me as I travel tomorrow and in my seminar all next week. Pray that I'll learn a lot and sharpen my ministry skills and that I'll be able to squeeze in some good time with my family on either end of my class. Also pray for Cam and the boys, who will be staying behind in Brazil. Ask for God's protection over them, and that He would be very real to them during this time. Even though she's not going, Cam has already put in her order for sharp cheedar, and expects me to fill up every spare inch of luggage coming back with goodies. Come to think of it, you might need to pray for our waistlines as well!
