This will be my last post for a few weeks. At some point in the next couple weeks, I’ll be making a very special trip, a trip I’ve wanted to make for several years. I’ll be going to Cape Town, South Africa as part of a teaching team. There is tremendous potential for the Gospel in a nation so ravaged by apartheid and HIV/AIDS. Over 6 million South Africans are living with HIV, more than the entire population of the state of Alabama. The pall of racism still hangs heavy over South Africa. Yet, beauty also envelopes this land where the human spirit is as indomitable as ever. This is a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to spend time in a different part of the Lord’s vineyard.
Wishing you a safe and prosperous 2011. And if you’re so inclined, say a prayer for me and my travels. See you in a few weeks.
