“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:11-12.

 

                What a beautiful season of the year! We are reminded of the Lord’s mercies toward us through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord. I was reminded recently that the expression “east to the west” is infinite, in contrast to “north and south” which are definable and have their limits.

 

                Paul did a lot of traveling, north, south, east and west last month, reason which accounts for not get a letter out. Two trips to Miami airport to take his brother Dave and wife to and from Brazil; another trip to Miami to deliver 20+ boxes of EBI material to port for Honduras; a trip to Tennessee (accompanied by his brother Steve) to deliver 35 boxes of books that eventually go to Mexico; then over to Winston-Salem, NC to preach at the 12th anniversary of the Hispanic church; then a day trip to Alabama to pick up 20 boxes of Spanish Hymnals which will go to Peru, and finally another trip to Miami with 15 boxes for Ecuador. Total travel, over 3,300 miles! He loves to deliver EBI materials which eventually are used in churches throughout Latin America.

 

                We have had many new neighbors this winter from up north and enjoyed their fellowship. Some have decided to buy in to the village either as winter residents or full timers. We also have enjoyed three Bible conferences and three concerts which are a blessing, as well as the regular services each week. Elaine has taught the ladies Sunday School class twice as substitute, and continues playing piano at a nursing home service twice each month as well as her ministry in the local jail twice each month. The prison ministry with Hispanics is growing, and Paul also preaches in English one Sunday a month in the worship hour.

 

                The schedule for our trip north in June and part of July is filling, and we’re looking forward to visiting several churches. We still have June 17th open and will be in the New York area at that time Lord willing.
