Across the pond....

I'm baaack!  Left 9/16, back 10/9.  What a lot of stories to tell.  That comes later, after I have my thoughts together about the trip.
I'm catching up with DVR programs and the news:
EBOLA, the dreaded disease has hit America.  I wouldn't ever apply for the job of caring for or cleaning up the elusive germs...
but, I'm glad there are people willing to risk doing that.
We have no idea how this plague will explode or where, but this we do know:

 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  Heb. 4:15,16

A missionary speaker in my church this morning said,
"There are many more deaths from malaria in Uganda than from AIDS or ebola.
We watch the television reports and media, making us anxious.  I need to draw near to Him on the throne, as revealed in the above verse.
Watch for another post soon...
