Dwight and Joanne Tomkins of the Mission Point Resource Center in Olancho arrived Sunday afternoon and stayed through this morning. We had a lovely visit, spending time talking, sharing, and encouraging one another. Our kids have all been sick since we got back a week ago so I appreciated Joanne's nursing experience and advice. This morning over breakfast, we marveled how blessed we are! As missionaries, we left behind our families, but because of the bond we have in Christ, we have family all over the world. It really was a blessing to get to know the Tomkins and we hope to visit them later this fall.
One other highlight...Sunday night Brian preached for the first time at church in Spanish! His sermon was about how we are the light the of the world. He ended with an object lesson. Before turning all the lights off, he had handed out candles and then very clearly showed how one person living for Jesus can share that light with others until the room was full of light!
