Sometimes I get a rather eye-opening reminder that, if heaven can be likened to a stadium, I'll be in the nosebleed section. Of course, the usual cause for this self evaluation is encountering someone who will have courtside seats, just behind the bench.
So it is with a young couple from our church, Josh and Abby. Josh is a seminary student and a budding theologian. Abby is a doctor (a real doctor, not a Ph.D.) Their ultimate goal, after all their training is completed, is to live in the mission field of Africa, providing much needed medical and teaching services.
Last week they left New England for Liberia. They are adopting a little girl named Gracie. You can read about it on Abby's blog. I am sure they would appreciate your prayers.
